The Vancouver Farmers Market announced Friday that it would cancel Saturday’s market due to poor air quality caused by Northwest wildfires.
“Air quality continues to be extremely poor in our region and health officials recommend staying indoors as much as possible,” the market said in a social media post.
The market, located on Eighth and Esther streets in downtown Vancouver, will be closed Saturday to protect the health of vendors and the community. A determination will be made this morning whether to remain closed Sunday.
However, since many farms and vendors have products ready for the market, online ordering was extended until 8 p.m. tonight. Customers who ordered online can still do curbside pickup from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday as usual, said Jordan Boldt, the market’s executive director.
