Sisters Farmers Market opens Sunday

Opening day for Sisters Farmers Market is Sunday, June 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year, the market will open with a bigger footprint: in addition to operating in Fir Street Park, Sisters Farmers Market will also include a new area across Main Avenue and indoors, at the Sisters Makers building adjacent to Fir Street Park.

Over 55 farmers, ranchers, makers, and food producers will bring their goods to Sisters Farmers Market this season, offering fresh veggies, mushrooms, berries, locally raised meat, seafood, value-added food products, as well as locally made arts and crafts. Shoppers can find produce from Rainshadow Organics, Abe and Oley Farms, Zodiac Farms, and Seed to Table, berries from Marquam Hill Berries, and fruit from Baird Orchards at the market this season.

On June 2, Sisters Farmers Market will also host Fill Your Garden: a plant sale and celebration of gardening presented by the Central Oregon Flower Collective.

“I got the idea for Fill Your Garden from the event that happens in the fall called Fill Your Pantry,” event organizer Lisa Shadduk of Central Oregon Flower Collective says. “That one focuses on the harvest, so I thought it’d be fun to have one that focuses on the planting.” 

In addition to a plant sale offered by partners, including Sisters Community Garden, Covey Fields Flower Farm, and Tumalo Lavender, Fill Your Garden will offer a garden tool swap, a garden book swap, and a seed-bomb making workshop for kids, as well as a canned food drive to benefit Sisters Food Bank.

Opening day activities at include morning yoga offered by Three Sisters Yoga Studio from 10:15 to 11 a.m. All ages are welcome and donations are accepted but not required. Bluegrass duo The Bunkhouse Two will kick off the market season at noon on the Songbird Stage. 

Rotary Club of Sisters and Living Well With Dementia will join the market as a featured nonprofit on Opening day. 

Sisters Farmers Market accepts SNAP/EBT and offers a SNAP match up to $20 with Double Up Food Bucks. Stop by the info booth to learn more about using SNAP at market or visit the market’s website.
