This week is Farmers Market Week, a celebration of farmers markets in Oregon and across the nation! There are over 130 farmers markets statewide in Oregon contributing wonderful things to our communities—from supporting local food producers and connecting them with shoppers, to serving as a community gathering space, to impacting community resilience and sustainable food systems. There are so many delicious reasons to explore Oregon's bountiful farmers markets!
