Bow Little Market has a new manager
As of March 1, Jeronimo Squires is Bow Little Market’s new manager, taking over from Patty Sweaney. Patty will stay as support for this year as Jeronimo learns the job.
Jeronimo is also assistant manager of the Anacortes Farmers Market.
And a new name: Over the 2017 season we will transition from “Bow Little Market” to “Bow Farmers Market.”
And a new location: Samish Bay Cheese, 15115 Bow Hill Rd., Bow
We began accepting EBT in 2014. Additionally, as a member of the Skagit Valley Farmers Market Coalition “Double Up Bucks” program, Bow Little Market will match unlimited dollars spent with EBT cards.
We now accept WIC/Senior dollars.
We are focused on feeding our community, and so we are soliciting more produce and prepared-food vendors. Contact Patty with questions — 360 724 3333.

Bow Little Market is a volunteer-run, non-profit, open-air market centered in the Samish watershed. Our vision is to build the time and place for our community to meet, provide mutual support, and create local solutions. We invite all to join us in creating a fun, family-friendly atmosphere in which to do a little business, barter, find a treasure, and support a neighbor.
We are always looking for new volunteers, vendors, guest demos, musicians, and entertainers. Give us a call at 360 724 3333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
