Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary in 2019!! 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 markets also includes many crafters and food artisans.
Beginning this year our market at the Grange hosts the Hungry Gardener, a licensed outdoor restaurant where each week we serve a delicious entree made from fresh-picked garden herbs and veggies, a side of mixed salad greens and a slice of freshly-baked whole grain sourdough bread. Outdoor seating is available and live music can be heard most Saturdays throughout the market season.
2019 marks the third year for the Bailey Hill Farmers’ Market, located at 3190 Bailey Hill Road. This West Eugene farmers’ market, located adjacent to the newly renovated Bailey Hill Market store, runs each Wednesday evening from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., also from late May to early October. Stop by and check it out when you’re in the neighborhood!
Our Market Reservations page offers a weekly preview of what you can expect to find at each market:
Both markets 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, allowing both markets to participate in the Double Up Food Bucks program, giving SNAP customers an opportunity to double their SNAP dollars by 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. The public is invited to attend our meetings, which take place monthly during the market season.
The Spencer Creek Growers’ Market is committed to providing a venue for neighbors to sell their locally produced agricultural items with an emphasis on sustainable and healthy growing practices, while encouraging and supporting local food production efforts through the fellowship of community.
