The Bainbridge Island branch of Union Bank recently presented a $1,000 check to the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market to help support the live music program at the market.

Union Bank has partnered with the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market Association for three years through music sponsorship. Every Saturday, the farmers market hosts either a solo act or a small group of musicians to play during market hours.

“We’re proud to partner with the Farmers’ Market each year on their music program,” said Deena Poole, senior relationship manager at the Union Bank branch on Bainbridge Island. “It allows us to give back to the Bainbridge community, support local musicians, and help the market thrive.”

The donation was presented Saturday, April 12 and was warmly received.

“Thanks to Union Bank for their continual support, their generous sponsorship allows us to deliver a first-class experience for our farmers market patrons,” said Peter Weber, vice president of the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market Association board of directors and a market vendor with Farmhouse Organics.
