Get ready, handmade goods, sweet treats, and fresh fruits and vegetables. The Downtown Yakima Farmers Market has a new operator. It's Yvette Lippert, and she's set a date for opening day: Mother's Day -- Sunday, May 13! According to the Yakima Herald-Republic, the market will continue every Sunday until Oct. 28. Since we have about a month to wait, it's a perfect time to get your booth together.

Lippert tells the Herald that she's accepting applications for vendors and sponsors of the market. If you're interested in taking part this season, you can email farmersmarket@downtownyakima.com to get more information. A new website with vendor and sponsor information is coming soon, too!
