Mission/
Specific Program Goals:
The Growers Market is community in action. For growers and customers it is a way of life. In all seasons it is a sensory extravaganza: spicy petunias, roses and chives, rosemary, thyme, and lavenders, fresh peaches, ripe tomatoes, coffee and donuts frying, wind chimes, hand-scented soaps and tea bags for the bath tub. There's a guitar player near the strawberry bed and a brother-sister duo playing bluegrass down by the coreopsis, a silversmith, and an artist in oils, stained glass; the riches of the region shared by friends and neighbors. Fresh eggs, specialty breads, cakes, pies, honey, Natural organic beef, buffalo, seafood, secondary wood products round out the product variety. Market day is every Saturday morning, mid-March until Thanksgiving, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the corner of 4th and "F" in downtown Grants Pass. A favorite with residents and tourists, the Growers Market is second only to the Rogue River as an area attraction. It showcases the finest fresh fruits and vegetables growing in the Southern Oregon region, as well as secondary wood products, gourmet specialty foods, artists and crafters. Members attend from Medford, Butte Falls, Winston, Canyonville, Gold Hill, Roseburg and the Illinois Valley.
