It's official. The Yakima Farmers Market will open on Mother's Day,  May 13 with new vendors and a new market manager. Yvette Lippert is already on the job with fresh ideas and plans. "We're really looking for vendors, artists and people who want to get involved. Volunteers for sure."
And she says she wants to hear from Yakima residents on what they'd like to see at the market. The market, on 3rd Street in front of the Capital Theater will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. And as part of the plan to increase the number of ag based vendors she says they'll no longer allow political or religious organizations to be a part of The Yakima Farmers Market.
