The Mercer Island Farmers Market Board of Directors would like to thank the Mercer Island Community Fund for their generous support of our “Healthy MI Program.”

Throughout the 2015 season, Farmers Market patrons will be able to sample an array of delicious products sold by our vendors, including fruit, vegetables, salmon and more. The funds will also support activities on nutrition and farming at the Children’s Table, run by Judy Witmer, early childhood and parent educator extraordinaire. As a result, Mercer Island  residents will add healthy, new favorites to their dinner tables, and our farmers and vendors will continue to thrive here on the Island.

Thank you, Mercer Island  Community Fund, for helping us improve the health of Island residents and for keeping our farmers market strong and vibrant.

Mindy Landsman

President, MIFM Board of Directors
