• The Auburn International Farmers’ Market held its open house last Thursday at Auburn City Hall and the event was a smashing success. Twenty vendors braved the inclement weather. Farmers traveled as far as Yakima to hear the business presentation by the steering committee. By the end of the meeting, 12 farmers had signed up, and more are expected to follow.

The goal of the committee is to sell a minimum of 20 stalls for the grand opening on June 14. Based on the positive turnout and comments from farmers, the AIFM probably will surpass its goal, according to City Councilman Bill Peloza.

For those interested in working on the AIFM panel, contact Peloza at 253-261-3235 or at
