This Week at the Market: August 2nd

Eats

Piles of pickling cucumbers.It’s that time of year to start thinking about pickling and canning. This week there will be pickling cucumbers, green beans, cabbage, beets, and dill for all of your pickling and canning needs. There will also be cherries, apricots, and peaches if you prefer something sweeter to can.

The peppers and tomatoes are continuing to multiply at the market, and corn, greens, carrots and several varieties of beans will continue to be plentiful as well.

For a complete list of vendors, visit our market map.

We need your help!!

We could not hold the market each week if it wasn’t for amazing volunteers. They are the one’s who help us setup and teardown each Sunday and who greet you when you enter the market. We are in the need for a few more people to join our group of dedicated volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill our our brief Volunteer Form.

Masks required at the market

Due to the rising COVID rates in Oregon, Governor Brown issued a mandate for wearing masks while outdoors. Since July 15th masks have been required in both indoor spaces and outdoor spaces when you cannot stay 6 feet apart.

While the market staff and volunteers work hard to manage traffic flow and the lines around the market, there might be times when that 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained so mask wearing is essential.
