The Washington Farmers Market has an unusual request of donations – ironing boards.

Market master Bob Shepherd says the ironing boards will be repurposed, “We started the food trucks last year and we’re always set up on the north side, right next to the crosswalk. There’s always a pretty good flock of people who are buying from the food truck, they’re excellent cooks. We’re going to spray paint just the metal part of the ironing boards bright colors, and we’re going to use them as mini-tables that you can stand next to and eat whatever you get from [the food trucks].”

The first market of the year is set for Thursday, May 17th starting at 5 p.m. This will mark the 30th year of the Washington Farmers’ Market in Washington’s Central Park. This year the market will again feature the annual salsa tasters choice contest and a barbeque challenge. If you have an ironing board to donate contact Shepherd or the Main Street Washington office.
