Final 3 Sisters Market set for Dec. 15

This will be the last chance to stock up on fresh, local meats and vegetables, as well as a chance to grab some holiday gifts from among the local vendors at the final 3 Sisters Market of the season from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.

The market is located across Highway 20 from the Blue Fox Drive-In south of Oak Harbor.

More than 20 vendors will share their local goods. 3 Sisters Farm will offer meat and eggs, said Shelly Muzzall, market owner.

“It’s an opportunity for folks to come in one more time right before Christmas and the holidays to stock up on meat, cheese, veggies, baked bread. It’s that last chance before winter sets in,” Muzzall said, adding that visitors have told her they appreciate that the market is a one-stop shop for a variety of local products.

3 Sisters Market truly is a one-stop shop with vendors offering everything from breads to jewelry. Brett’s Bread, which recently opened a storefront in Coupeville, will offer fresh breads and cinnamon rolls. Golden Glen Creamery will bring their butter and cheeses.

Enjoy a hot lunch from ShoNuff Foods or help Oak Harbor High School students earn money for a trip by purchasing their lavender neck wraps. Mystic Farms will offer natural cleaning supplies, soaps and lotions. Jewelry by Nancy features beach glass jewelry. Old Man Merlin offers handmade dog treats, and Just Toffee offers toffee that’s “very popular around town,” Muzzall said.

Or find teas by Greenmans Guild, plus vegetables, onions and frozen strawberries from Bell’s and Case-Smith farms, and squash from Pioneer Farms. Full Harvest Farms will offer a variety of vegetables.

“We’re trying to have a community service here,” Muzzall said.

The market is also a fun opportunity for people to visit a farm.

“They really get that whole effect of this is where the animals are raised at. People can come see what a working farm is all about,” Muzzall said.

She advises market visitors to dress warm and be prepared for mud.

3 Sisters plans to open a retail store next year. Their market will reopen in late winter or early spring.
