The second-annual Solstice Run will take place at 6 p.m. this Thursday, June 20, at Pybus Public Market. The run course will begin and end outside Pybus Market. Runners and walkers will travel by Badger Mountain Brewery, 509 Bierwerks, Columbia Valley Brewery and Wenatchee Valley Brewery — the four breweries that make up Wenatchee Brewers Row craft brewery district.

And there will be giveaways every hour and live music. This family friendly event also will include non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. Please note: If you are planning on having a beer, you
Pybus Market extends a warm and grateful thank-you to Katja Rowell, our volunteer Pybus University coordinator, who is departing this role. Katja has done a remarkable job picking up where Jennifer Burke left off and creating some meaningful and informative Pybus University classes for the last couple years, while adding additional structure to the program. We will miss Katja’s thoroughness, organizational skills and passion for “the adventure of lifelong learning.” We are seeking a new volunteer Pybus University coordinator. Katja has already set the Fall class lineup, so it is a perfect time to assume this very part-time role. If you have a interest in lifelong learning and want to be a part of the Pybus experience, please call Steve
The work now undergoing in the round-about area immediately south of Pybus Market is the much anticipated construction of what will be known as the Pybus Plaza. The work will eliminate much of the dirt, mud and potholes that have plagued the area since Pybus Market opened in May, 2013 and replace it with European style pavers, new sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, a water fountain and future art sculpture. The end result will be the creation of a gorgeous public square or community thoroughfare that provides easy pedestrian access to the Apple Capital Loop Trail and Pybus Market. The 12 parking stalls – including 4 handicapped stalls – will be retained, although the Plaza area will sometimes be closed to car

The following is reprinted from a Feb. 18 article written and published by The Wenatchee World: “The area just south of Pybus Public Market is being turned into a plaza that officials hope will make it more enticing to visitors. Pybus Executive Director Steve Robinson said construction costs are estimated at about $380,000, but the project hasn’t yet gone out to bid. “The goal is to put it out to bid soon — I would say late winter, early spring — and build it once the weather improves this summer,” Robinson said. The city of Wenatchee is putting $240,000 in state Local Revitalization Financing toward the plaza. The Pybus Market Charitable Foundation will put up the rest and is responsible
