The Bayview Farmers Market vendors recently made donations to two local organizations “as a mark of respect for the community that supports them during the market season,” according to a press release.

In early March, Bayview Farmers Market president Shirlee Read presented The HUB with a check for $500. The check was contributed by market vendors who voted unanimously to benefit the after-school program as a way of giving back to the community. The HUB is a non-profit program, located at Langley United Methodist Church on Anthes Avenue in downtown Langley, that serves as a drop-in center for local teenagers.

Sharon Warwick, manager of the farmers market, also presented Whidbey Island Nourishes volunteers and staff with a $500 check. Whidbey Island Nourishes is a non-profit organization which helps ensure the community’s young people receive adequate nutrition.

The Bayview Farmers Market opens for the season at 10 a.m. on April 29.
