Damp, blustery weather didn’t daunt vendors at the Wednesday Farmers Market’s debut at the Pybus Public Market. A nice handful (OK, eight of them) turned out with great-looking fruit, produce, baked goods and handicrafts.

Mika and Mariah Mulliken, ages 21 and 17 respectively, were selling bag-loads of huge cherries and ripe apricots that they picked and packed themselves as employees of Tiny’s Organic of East Wenatchee. It’s a summer job for the Wenatchee sisters (in photo) who praised Greg and Erin McPherson, owners of the family-owned orchards and their website tinysorganics.com, as good bosses who produce great fruit. Believe it or not, the farm grows about 60 varieties of fruit and sells at 30 farmers markets, many of them in the Puget Sound area.

The Wednesday Farmers Market will operate at Pybus through autumn. Of course, it’s a spin-off of Saturday’s Wenatchee Valley Farmers Market, the Pybus Market’s largest tenant.
