Attention all gardeners:

All summer at the Saturday Market the Lummi Island Community Land Trust will be sponsoring a Bring and Buy produce stall. Whenever your garden produces more than you or your family can use, bring it down on Saturday morning and we’ll sell it for you. Please bring: flowers, vegetables, fruit, seedlings/plant starters – whatever your garden produces and someone else might want!


Here are the rules: The market runs 10 AM – 2 PM. Please bring your produce as early as possible (ideally between 9.30 and 10 AM when we will be setting up. We will provide stickers for you to price your own items. We will sell them for you and take 25% leaving you with 75% or you can choose to donate your produce.

Please collect your money and anything we haven’t sold between 1:30 and 2 PM. Produce not collected by 2 PM will be given away or composted. Any questions, phone 758-9925, email info@lummiislandclt.org or see us at the Saturday Market.


The Bastille Day Dinner and the Saturday Market sales will be fundraising events, and the proceeds will go to our Watershed Enhancement Committee’s Nearshore project – working towards restoring and enhancing marine habitats around Lummi Island’s ferry landing and County beach while reducing water pollution and securing the shoreline bank.
