National Famers’ Market Week has been celebrated the first week of August for 23 years: this year from Aug. 7 to 13. Next Thursday, Aug. 11, will be a special day at the Kooskia Farmers’ Market. Melissa Knapton, market manager, would like to invite the community to join the vendors and regular shoppers for this special event. In addition to all the usual activities, there will be free tattoos and tote bags, along with a special craft the kids can do there or take home. In addition to live music, there will also be a photo booth to mark the occasion.
