Anyone who lives in the greater Eugene area who does not take advantage of the fabulous Saturday (or Tuesday) farmers market is just plain missing out.
So much good food to choose from.
The mushroom guy has fresh morels in spring - there are berries and corn and swiss chard the size of small children - the nantes carrots are so sweet they make you want to cry - huge bunches of fresh basil and cilantro, beets and cabbages, kale and lettuces big enough to make salad for 12 from one head. We are so blessed and so grateful for this phenomenal market. Thanks to all the local farmers - one day I hope to know them ALL.
Many of the growers move to the Holiday Market at Lane County fair Grounds when they close the outdoor market for the season…so we can still get the best!!
Lane County Saturday market is great! Its right downtown so its great for those who want to visit local stores after being finished at the market. Also, there are not only produce booths, but many craft, art and food booths as well! There's a little bit of everything for a little bit of everyone!! You may have to walk a few blocks to and from your parking spot, but its well worth it.
