The Ferndale Market began in 2007 and has since grown into a market of more than 30 vendors. Each vendor hand-selects their products, whether it’s produce or artisan crafts, to sell to community members. The market also offers an opportunity for youth vendors. On the second Friday of each month, vendors under 18 are allowed to vend for free. The goal is to promote the importance of local, nutrient-rich, produce and supporting the community among young people.
Having a similar selection to the Bellingham market, but without the crowds and parking headaches. Less people means more space for kids to play and more elbow room for shopping.
The location makes the market. Located along the riverwalk, the environment is a destination within itself.
