Music, bellydance, and beekeeping will enliven this Sunday’s closing-day celebration at Sisters Farmers Market. Organizers are inviting the community to “Come bee happy with us!” at Fir Street Park 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Appaloosa will play an hour-long set of their original “High Desert Americana” tunes at 11 a.m., followed by a bellydance performance by SheyZa Samson, a teacher at Life. Love. Yoga.

On the sweet side of things, honey will be available for sale — and Master Beekeeper Jimmy Wilkie of Broadus Bees will present a special hive demonstration for kids and adults alike.

Vendors can change from week to week, but recent highlights include crunchy fresh carrots and fragrant herbs from Seed to Table, melt-in-your-mouth golden potatoes from Mahonia Gardens, and freshly baked bread from Boone Dog’s wood-fired ovens.

Chanterelles from Clover Canyon Farms, infused oils and vinegars from Mama Celia’s, fresh peaches and nectarines from Baird Family Orchards, and Coho Coffee’s tasty cookies and pastries tempt shoppers, too.

Locally handcrafted items include unique Sisters-themed T-shirts, stickers, and cork caps. Natural body-care products, art and photographic goods, local CBD, and environmentally friendly shoeshine have been available in the market’s September lineup, along with locally ranched and pastured meats, eggs, and cheeses.

Open from the beginning of June to the end of September, the market is supported by Metabolic Maintenance, The Cottonwood Café, The Nugget Newspaper, She Soars Psychiatry, Plazm and Xpress Printing, along with donors, volunteers, and vendors. Grants from the City of Sisters and The Roundhouse Foundation support late-season cultural and community programming.

Sisters Farmers Market runs every Sunday through the end of September at Fir Street Park. (located one block north of Cascade Ave./Highway 20 at the corner of East Main and North Fir Street). Learn more at www.sistersfarmersmarket.com.
