Change makers are rethinking how we inhabit our planet, and so can you, at Orcas Center’s 2nd annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. This year’s short films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first–rate storytelling with the festival theme of "emPOWERment", particularly as it relates to nature and human interaction with our environment.

Hosted by Orcas Center and the San Juan Preservation Trust. Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires and ignites solutions, and creates positive probabilities to restore the earth and human communities.

"Eat Locally" is a way of life for many residents in the San Juan Islands. The San Juan Island Farmers' Market features delicious island-raised produce, berries, colorful bouquets, eggs, and dairy products, as well as fresh local seafood, shellfish, and meats. The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!

The market is held year-round at Brickworks, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street. High season hours (July 4 – Labor Day) are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Low season hours are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The market takes place each Saturday from mid-April through October both inside and outside of Brickworks. In November and December it takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, and from January – April on the 1st Saturday of the month.

Brickworks is Friday Harbor’s newest rehabilitated historic site. The building was built in 1920 to house the Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company. Today it is the last surviving industrial building in Friday Harbor, beautifully renovated to provide a year-round farmers market and event space.
