Shoreline Farmers Market Announces New Season and GiveBIG 2024 Fundraiser

The Shoreline Farmers Market (SFM) has been a cornerstone of our community for twelve seasons, connecting neighbors, supporting local farmers and businesses, and providing access to fresh, nutritious food for all.

The Shoreline Farmers Market, located at the BikeLink Park & Ride (corner of 192nd & Aurora, across from Sky Nursery) begins Season 13 on Saturday, June 1st, from 10am - 2pm and continues every Saturday through October 5th.  SFM has also partnered with local leaders for their second annual PRIDE celebration on June 15th.

Also announced is the SFM GiveBIG 2024 fundraising effort. 

Your donation to the Shoreline Farmers Market directly fuels  programs like SNAP Match, Senior Food Delivery, and the Power of Produce Kids Club. These initiatives not only combat food insecurity in our community but also champion local businesses and sustainable agriculture.

Many of our Shoreline neighbors rely on SNAP funds to purchase food from vendors each market Saturday? With our SNAP Market Match Program*, your donation can double the impact of their purchasing power, significantly increasing access and decreasing hunger.

Please consider pledging a gift for SFM during GiveBIG 2024 to ensure the continuation of these vital community programs.

Support the Shoreliners - Walk for Water 2024

Chamber Member Gina Cantara is captaining the Shoreliners team for the Walk for Water 2024, taking place on Saturday, May 11, 2024 at 10:00 AM PDT. The walk supports Path From Poverty, a non-profit organization (and Chamber Member) that supports women's group projects in Kenya providing:

  • Business and leadership training
  • Clean, safe water, in the form of 10,000L rainwater catchment tanks
  • Solar power, including panels, chargers, and utility packs
  • Education scholarships

Cantara is excited to join the walk, stating, "I can think of no better way to support women/mothers that live without easy access to clean, drinkable water." Adding, "Our walking route is approx. 5 km/3 mi. This is the average women and their daughters walk daily just to retrieve water they must carry back to their village and then boil to make it safe to ingest."

Cantara invites all Chamber Members and Shoreline community members to join the walk or pledge to support the Shoreliner team in their efforts.
