Start working on your Eat Local Week recipes & hashtag #rvgrowersmarket on Instagram & Twitter to tag us in photos of your local food creations using fresh, locally grown ingredients.
As always, thank you for supporting you local farmers, food artisans and hand-crafting artisans. Cheers!
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack declared August 3rd-9th 2014 National Farmers Market Week to bring attention to our nation’s 8,100+ farmers markets, the farmers who make them possible & the communities that host them. Thank you Southern Oregonians for your support! Join one another in shopping for farm fresh locally produced goods, every Tuesday in Ashland, Thursday in Medford and Saturday in Medford & Ashland. Scroll through this page for location information, times & dates and more. See you at Market!
Summertime at Market brings an abundance of local flavors! Both Saturday Markets (in Medford on The Commons at 6th & Bartlett & in Ashland on Oak St) are open until 1PM through October. Weekday Markets (Tuesdays on E. Main & Wightman in Ashland & Thursday at the Medford Armory in Medford) are open until 1:30PM through November. Photos below are from the Saturday Medford Market, by Manager Abby Hogge. Come early to Market & be sure to get all your favorite seasonal treats before they are all gone!
This week’s video clip airing on Channel 5, is with Chef Zentgraf from Providence, interviewing Shauna with Runnymede Farm. Say “Hi” to Shauna, Teri & the Runnymede Farm crew at Saturday Market on The Commons (6th & Bartlett in Medford) and join your neighbors and local chefs in getting the freshest food available. (Big thanks to Providence for producing this clip & for supporting the $4 incentive called Fresh Rewards at the Saturday Medford Market – a way for Oregon Trail Card holders to get more fresh local food onto their tables!)
Remember, The Commons is the place to be & parking is always free! Every Saturday, park free in the shaded parking garage. Come listen to the live music concert series at The Commons Ampitheater. Find fresh produce, artisan bread, handcrafted gift items, specialty foods and get stellar lunch from the Food Trucks at Market.
