BUSINESS BRIEFS: New vendors welcomed to Port Angeles Farmers Market … and other items

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Farmers Market recently announced that it has added four new vendors to its lineup.

The vendors are Lady & the Carpenter, Me Beads, L.J. Reyes and farmers David and Karen Weaver of Wild Edge Farm.

The carpenter offers handmade wooden items including clothespins, cutting boards, rolling pins and cedar planting boxes.

Me Beads sells beaded jewelry using semi-precious gemstones and silver or pewter as earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

L.J. Reyes creates liquid body washes and shampoos made from family recipes, as well as hand-crocheted and knit items made from vintage patterns and her own patterns.

The Weavers of Wild Edge Farm bring fresh produce on their vegetable cart. Their market booth is run by their three children — also farmers.
