River’s Edge Farmers Market kicks off season Thursday, June 1

The first River’s Edge Farmers Market of the 2023 season is Thursday, June 1 from 5-7:30 p.m.

OREGON — Summer is here and what better way to kick it off than with the first River’s Edge Farmers Market of the 2023 season? Join us Thursday, June 1 from 5-7:30 p.m. to shop nearly 30 local vendors, grab dinner from three fabulous food trucks and take in tunes from our good friends The Rock River Strummers! We’re located right behind the Oregon Fire Protection District at 123 N. 2nd St.

Everyone will be able to stock their fridge with fresh produce, meat, eggs, coffee, honey, maple syrup and mushrooms, plus canned goods and tasty homemade baked goods and snacks! We are also very happy to again accept SNAP/Link funds for the above items. 

Those utilizing Link cards can visit the information booth (orange tent with the yellow tablecloth) to exchange Link funds for “River Bucks,” which can be used to purchase food items directly from vendors. We are also participating in the Link Match program, which offers a dollar-for-dollar match on Link funds for fresh produce. Spend $10 from your Link card, get another $10 to spend!

In addition to food, we’ll have jewelry, soap, apparel, art, plants, knit and crochet items, dog treats and more! Most importantly, we’ll have FUN! June 1 promises to be a wonderful night and it only gets better throughout the season. We look forward to seeing you there, June through September!
