Wow! Bremerton Community! We are so excited to announce our great group of vendors at our new location! Without a doubt, none of this would be possible if it were not for you as a community speaking out, taking action and collectively making suggestions that ultimately led us to an ideal central location that we really feel will serve a greater number of our community members. We have also secured more farm vendors and excited to be welcoming Wades Nursery and Ridgetop Urban Farms to our line up this week.
Also check out the amazing plans in the future for Quincy Square. Quincy Square is located on 4th Street between Washington and Pacific Ave in downtown Bremerton. Street parking is free after 5 pm, as is parking in the Washington Ave Parking garage, right around the corner of our NEW market location.
