Located on the Olympia Farmers Market, the Sunflower project is a 73 kW solar photovoltaic system scheduled for installation September 2021. The project’s energy will be purchased by the Market and its value distributed to community participants.
You can support this project by purchasing or donating solar units. Each solar unit represents about one solar panel in the Sunflower system. Participants will receive an annual payment for the energy their unit generates.
The Market board and staff continue to monitor the advancing COVID-19 health crisis closely, seeking guidance from our partners at Thurston County Public Health and Social Services and the Washington State Farmers Market Association.
As of June 24, masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals. In accordance with the CDC, those who are unvaccinated should continue wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings.
We believe the availability of local foods is key to a healthy community and that the market is an important platform for our farmers, processors and other small businesses to sell directly to that community. Our market has the advantage of being in an open-air building with excellent airflow and on-site restroom facilities.
