Summer is in full force at the Bainbridge Farmers' Market. Saturday morning is the place to be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The hot weather crops are coming in weekly and tuna and salmon will be coming soon.  The craft vendors are here to greet you with one of a kind items that will be the perfect take-home gift for your out of town visitors.  Speaking of off-island visitors, please have them check in at the market manager's booth and let us know where you've come from. We're tracking the number of visitors we get each week and would love to give a personalized greeting to all out of towners.
