While most area farmer’s markets are closed already or are shutting down after this weekend, the Proctor Farmers’ Market is extending its season into November.

For the first time in its 15 years, the market will continue to operate through Nov. 22, according to co-market manager Jessica Troy. The decision to extend was made a while ago but she wanted to make sure the word got out. "We’ve talked about it for years," she said but finally vendors, customers and supporters decided it was time.

Along with vegetables, fruit and flowers, Troy said they have a few new vendors offering goat cheese, fresh homemade pasta, fresh tamales, local honey and even some potted evergreen trees that could be Christmas trees.

A Lopez Island farmer with ties to Tacoma will offer grass-fed meat, she said.

The market is located in the Proctor District on North 27th Street between Proctor and Madison streets. It is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
