2019 Summer Farmers Market Season is Open!

Produce from the Lake Oswego Farmers Market.

Did you know that Clackamas County is home to 12 different summer farmers markets? Our local markets are well represented in both rural and urban parts of our District and provide our communities with an incredible variety of locally grown, produced, and crafted agricultural and forestry products.

We are lucky to be home of a couple of long-standing and nationally award-winning markets (Milwaukie and Oregon City) and we are always happy to help new markets develop in smaller communities like Welches and Redland.

Summer farmers markets provide valuable points of sale for local agricultural producers, increasing their economic success. Financially successful farmers have an increased ability to conserve water and soil resources and to maintain healthy habitat. Success also helps them keep their land in agricultural production now and into the future. That’s good for the farm, native wildlife, water quality, and you!

Additionally, farmers markets are well-positioned to provide food, farm, and natural resource education to adults and children. Learning about the value of nutritious, fresh, and healthy whole foods is good for public health, our agricultural producers, and our environment.
