It’s that time of year again, when the farmers who have been working hard all spring to grow and raise delicious food for your table magically transform little parts of town into the feast for the eyes and ears we call a Farmers Market. Harvested at the peak of ripeness just before coming to the market, the fruits and veggies you’ll find are the freshest you’ll get without growing it yourself. You’ll also find delicious prepared and preserved food, crafts, bread, music, and a great chance to have a conversation with farmers and friends in a beautiful, personal atmosphere.
Wherever you are in Central Oregon, you’ll find a market nearby – here’s a list of this season’s market destinations.
