Message from Chief Matt Murray…

Hi, I’m Matthew Murray, Yakima’s Chief of Police. I’ve been a police officer for nearly 30 years, and I’m proud to be leading our great police force here in Yakima. We believe that to effectively police in a community, there has to be trust—and trust is built in relationships. That’s why, since starting as Chief of Police, I’ve made it a priority to get out into the community and get to know people. If you see me or other officers in your neighborhood, we invite you to come say hello or just give us a wave. It’s our goal to build relationships and ultimately reduce crime. When police know their community and have earned the trust of its residents that builds stronger, safer communities. Communication is a powerful tool in bringing communities together and keeping them safe. This website is designed to help you find what you need. If you have questions, please let us know. We’re here to listen and connect.

– Chief Murray

The Yakima Farmer's Market shines in its new venue. Thank you, Rotary. There is ample parking right next to the venue, plenty of stalls and great food (including Gheet!) and live music. This is just what Yakima needs. Whoever is running this, way to go!

Finally got down there today- Wow! I am really impressed 😃 The vender participation and food choices are amazing. Everything I ate (yes, it was a lot 🤷‍♀️) tasted wonderful. I brought some home to have for supper 😊 Thank you so very much Yakima Rotary for creating such a lovely spot for us in Yakima. And thank you to all the wonderful community volunteers that help make it happen for the rest of us to enjoy.

Thank you Yakima Rotary for this place, it's really nice! And Thank You to YPD for being so visible in the community, you have the nicest cops!

God bless all our first responders🇺🇸🇺🇸♥️

Yakima does have a great Farmers Market.

Where and when?
