Spring is officially here, and a whole new season of events are underway on Whidbey Island! From celebrating nature to joining in on festive community events, you’ll find something for all ages and interests this April.
Nothing says spring is here quite like your local farmers market starting back up again! Whidbey Island has 6 main farmers markets that happen each year, and 2019 brings us another season of delicious local produce, homemade treats, live entertainment, beautiful handmade creations, and of course, the perfect time to get out and meet your neighbors.
Whether you’re in spring cleaning mode or feeling inspired after watching “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” on Netflix, giving your home a deep clean can often mean accumulating a pile of stuff to donate! Luckily, Whidbey Island has several donation opportunities that make parting with things you no longer need or use as easy as possible. And not only will you end up with a tidy home, but you’ll be able to help those in need along the way!
This month brings us a full calendar of events and happenings on Whidbey Island! Get out and celebrate our local culture, learn something new, and join the community in popular events like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Oak Harbor.
Be sure to mark your calendars now so you don’t miss out on the fun!

If you’ve ever been through the process of buying a home, then you know it can take time and lots of it! Often, when a new listing comes on the market, we have to jump on it FAST. Especially in Whidbey Island’s current real estate market, homes are sometimes going pending before people even have a chance to tour. (Great for sellers… not so great for buyers.)
You don’t have to travel far to find farm-fresh, homemade, and high-quality food products when you live on Whidbey Island! From mouthwatering jams and artisanal chocolates to local grass-fed meats and island-made sauces and seasonings, Whidbey Island is home to some people who are seriously talented in the kitchen.
