Hood River Saturday Market opens for 2015 season

The Hood River Saturday Market celebrates its 25th anniversary this year in a new, more convenient location. The market opens on June 6 at the Oak Street Pub on the corner of 4th and Oak Street in the heart of downtown Hood River. The market will run every Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. through September, with a great mix of food and craft vendors to attract both locals and visitors.

The market will feature a wide variety of local food, including seasonal fruit, free-range eggs, local meats, gelato, cheese, and fresh cut flowers. Vendors will include Kiyokawa Family Orchards, Eliot Wood Farm, Cicci Gelato, Jefferies Ranch Beef, and Feathered Lady Farms, to name a few. The market, operated by local non-profit Gorge Grown Food Network, will also celebrate local artisans, including unique handmade soap, jewelry, and pottery.

“We’re thrilled to try a new, more central location this year with live music and a wide selection of rotating vendors every week,” says Zak Lance, Market Manager. Gorge Grown polled vendors and shoppers to determine when and where to hold the market this year in hopes of increasing attendance. Holding the Saturday Market in the heart of downtown will add a new burst of energy and increase the appeal for shoppers to enjoy all of the great businesses downtown.

The market will also host a community table, where home gardeners can sell extra fruit and veggies from their backyards with no long-term commitment. Contact zak@gorge-grown.com for more information. The market accepts Farm Direct Nutrition Program checks as well as EBT and debit cards.
