Whidbey Farm and Market in Oak Harbor re-opened on Saturday with a slew of new offerings for the 2022 season.
The farm and market, located on Monroe Landing Road, first opened in May of 2021. This year the market has brought on eight new vendors, among other changes.
The market is constantly welcoming new local craftspeople. This season, for example, Crow Cottage is debuting candles made from upcycled bottles and containers, Knotty Court is offering macrame and Brenda Pike is selling wooden trays.
The market will also offer three new flavors of Lopez Island Creamery ice cream — chocolate almond chunk, lemon drop sorbet and a seasonal cherry chocolate chip.
Whidbey Farm and Market will continue to offer JennyBean Coffee, though the market will take over the coffee stand operations this season. Whidbey Farm and Market owner Shannon Hamilton said JennyBean personnel have been involved in training Whidbey Farm and Market to make the transition as seamless as possible, so farm visitors can still enjoy the blends they sipped last season.
“We had such a great 2021 season and are so thankful for everyone who came out to visit the market and support our first year,” Hamilton said. “It was great to take some time off over the winter months to regroup and then refresh the market so that it is even better for our community this year.”
