Farmers Market Flash – Get Involved

Program Contact: Diane Smith, Faculty, Health Promotion and Food Access Specialist
(360) 395-2355 •



Market bags filled with fresh food items are offered to those who attend the Flash Class series. Instead of providing just a bag of fruits and vegetables, our goal is to offer “cooking kits” with additional herbs, spices, oil, and staples to transform these farm-fresh items into a complete meal!

Often it can be difficult to try new food and experiment while cooking healthy when a pantry is bare. Consider donating:

  • Bulk spices
  • Oil
  • Garlic
  • Dried beans and rice
  • Canned beans

Donations can be delivered to the Food Distribution Center located near the Les Schwab in Sedro-Woolley.



Nothing attracts customers more effectively than word of mouth. Help to promote our project by spreading the word! If you’re a community stakeholder with recommendations for this project, get in touch with our Project Coordinator and share your ideas!



We are looking for volunteers to assist during the 2016 Farmers Market Season. If you want to get involved behind the scenes as we plan for the market season, please contact the Project Coordinator, Shannon Bachtel.

Volunteer opportunities and descriptions will be posted soon.


It just takes a few moments to “like” a Facebook page, and in turn, you help to boost the visibility of our project and farmers markets in social media.
