Join us as we celebrate our 12th year!! Our market at the Spencer Creek Grange takes place each Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from late May through early October. We set up behind the Grange building, which is located at 86013 Lorane Highway at the corner of McBeth Road in Eugene.
Instead of commercial farmers, our sellers are largely backyard growers and hobby farmers offering locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, pasture-raised meats, eggs, nursery plants, plant starts and much more. Our market also includes many crafters and food artisans.
In 2020 we were forced to downsize due to the pandemic, and in order to socially distance our vendor participation was halved. We also closed down the Cafe, and suspended live performances. Our fledgeling POP Club (Power of Produce) for kids was able to offer all elementary aged children a $2 coupon each time they attended market, but there were no characteristic activities or tastings.
Our Market Reservations page offers a weekly preview of what you can expect to find at the market each Saturday during the season.
Our market accepts SNAP (Oregon Trail Cards), which can be used to buy vegetables, fruits, meats, fish, nuts, honey, bread, grains and edible plant starts and seeds. Over the years we’ve received generous grants from Helios Resource Network, the Willamette Farm and Food Coalition and the Farmers Market Fund, enabling us to participate in the Double Up Food Bucks program, which provide SNAP customers an opportunity to double their SNAP dollars when purchasing fresh, dried or frozen whole or cut fruits and vegetables from participating vendors (edible plant starts and grains are not eligible). Up to $10 in tokens will be matched with $10 in Food Bucks. This means you can get up to $20 worth of food by drawing just $10 from your SNAP account!
The Spencer Creek Growers’ Market is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization. The volunteer board of directors consists of local residents, local food growers and producers and area business people.
