This Week at the Market: September 8th

Eats

Close-up of ripe peaches.I love this time of year when the stalls are filled with an abundance of produce at the market. Now that school has started, I’ve been filling my son’s lunch with bread, carrots, celery, cucumbers, apples, pears, pickles, and peaches from the market. You will also find several varieties of tomatoes, summer squash, and peppers along with meat and eggs.

Kids’ Activities

Kids can use their imaginations to make their own unique coffee filter butterflies.

Tunes

From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Raven & Rose will perform Gypsy and Eastern European folk music. Led by the husband-and-wife team of Rosalie Crowe on violin and singer-songwriter Roy Crowe on accordion, trombone, guitar, melodica, Raven & Rose fills out a unique soundscape from serene and dreamy waltzes to lively and wild kolomeykas.

Woodstock Gives Back

Get involved in your neighborhood this Sunday by shopping at neighborhood business including the farmers market. Businesses throughout Woodstock will raise funds and generate awareness for the charity or nonprofit of their choice including the Oregon Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Oregon Humane Society and many more.

The Woodstock Farmers Market will be raising money for our SNAP Matching program. SNAP offers nutrition assistance to eligible, low-income individuals and families. Our matching program gives additional purchasing power to our SNAP customers to spend on fresh, healthy food directly from our vendors, which also helps support small family farms.

Stop by the Woodstock Gives Back booth at the market to learn more about this fun neighborhood event, or stop by the market Info Booth to learn more about our SNAP Matching program.
