Farmers Market
“With more than 250 vendors and all kinds of veggies, fruit, baked goods, flowers, handcrafts and even clothes, you don’t want to miss out on a stop to the Vancouver Farmers Market. It’s open to both people and pets every Saturday and Sunday, March-October, and is the second-largest farmers market in Washington State. In addition to the shopping, there are many vendors who sell ready-to-eat items so you can chow down on the spot, and local musicians are frequently performing.”
