Woodstock Farmers Market features a bounty of fresh produce, free kids activities, live music and sunshine. Bring your friends, family and neighbors to our seventh season opening this Sunday, June 3rd!
There will be limited amounts of strawberries at the market, so make sure you get to the market early. You will also find greens, rhubarb, asparagus, summer squash, potatoes, fresh fish, meat, hard cheeses, eggs and much more.
In addition to your favorite returning vendors, we are joined by Amica Farm (fruits & veggies), Dos Hermanos Bakery (baked bread & pastries), Gluten Free Gem (gluten-free baked goods), Margalaxy (raw/paleo/gluten-free snacks), Moon Coffee (espresso beverages & lattes), Rocky Mountain Butte (coffee beans), Sandy Bluff Farm (fruits & veggies), Stellar Pop (ice pops) and True Nature (salsa, pesto & dips). For a complete list of vendors, visit our market map.
It’s June, which means it’s time to fill up your raised garden beds with veggies to enjoy throughout the summer. Mountainside Herbal Nursery will have starts on Opening Day. Whether you want to plant tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, herbs, broccoli, fennel, squash or cucumbers, we’ve got you covered!
Knives and Tool Sharpening
Have you let your knives and tools get dull over the winter? You deserve sharp knives to cut all the like herbs and vegetables from the farmers market. Bring your favorite kitchen knives and/or tools to Dragonfly Forge this Sunday for sharpening.
This is our third year for our passport program where kids can participate in activities at the market each week and get awesome prizes such as stickers, ice cream at Cloud City and more! Stop by our info booth to learn more.
There will be several kids activities at the market this Sunday including a fun paper crown craft with Kenilworth Community Preschool, a half-day Reggio-based preschool for children ages three and four.
Kids can join Steve and Kate’s Camp to make bread dough to bring home to bake. Make sure you ask them about their fun summer camp that allows campers to choose activities such as stop-motion animation, rock, bread making, knitting, sewing, music recording and much more.
Kids can stop by the Schoolyard Farms booth for a seed packet-making activity so kids can grow vegetables at home. They’ll be talking about plant parts, what seeds need to grow, how to cook and eat your harvest, and their farm-to-table summer camp program at Schoolyard Farms all along the way.
To round out the kids fun, Crista will be at the market face painting.
From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., AnnaPaul and the Bearded Lady, the “littlest big band in Portland,” will perform dance-able swing music from the 19teens to the 1930s!
The Woodstock Neighborhood Association (WNA) works to create a sense of community and maintain and improve the livability of the Woodstock Neighborhood. Stop by their booth to find out more about getting involved in our neighborhood.
Through the end of June, we are raising money to help sustain our SNAP Matching Program. This program helps those who need it most with gaining access to fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms right here in Oregon.
We have received generous donations from Farmers Market Fund, New Seasons Market, Bob’s Red Mill, Bridge’s Produce and the Woodstock Neighborhood Association. In the past two weeks we have also received $525 from the community. THANK YOU!! We still need $4,475 more to reach our goal, which will allow us to match $10 for the duration of the season. Visit our GoFundMe page to learn more and to donate!
In addition to monetary donations, one way for you to help our SNAP Matching efforts is to join us for a donation day at Laughing Planet on Monday, June 25th. They will be donating 15% of sales all day to our SNAP Matching program, so bring your family and friends for lunch or dinner. We hope to see you there!
