Grants Pass, Oregon Grower's Market

Grants Pass Oregon Growers Market

It's the parking lot behind the Post Office, where all the excitement begins every Saturday morning in downtown Grants Pass, Oregon.  As we anxiously await the first tender seedling to burst through the cool ground, we are ever grateful for the local bounty of the Grants Pass, Oregon Grower's Market.  Counting the days until we can sink our teeth into fresh sweet peaches, buffalo jerky, artisan handmade bread, cheese, and yummy honey is just part of the anticipated excitement. 

Grants Pass, Oregon Grower's Market is a community of local growers and artisans offering home-grown produce and home-made crafts and goodies to the general public.  Customers experience a sensory extravaganza of spicy petunias, roses and chives, rosemary, thyme, and lavenders, fresh peaches, ripe tomatoes, coffee brewing and donuts frying, wind chimes, hand-scented soaps and tea bags for the bathtub.  A guitar player near the strawberry bed and a brother-sister duo playing bluegrass down, 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, and wood products round out the variety.

Grants Pass, Oregon Grower's Market is also a friendly place to gather to converse over a cup of coffee and a home-made pastry.  Often times, the topic of conversation amongst its visitors is gardening.  From tulips to begonias, and from tomato plants to zucchini, there is much to discuss at the Grower's Market.  But, that's not the only thing on the minds of gatherers.  It's a precious moment of reprieve from the hectic stress of every day life.  A chance to breathe the fresh clean air in Grants Pass, Oregon and an opportunity to take a stroll for exercise and/or walk the dog.  Whatever the reason for joining the followers, it is certainly a fertile ground for creating relationships of land and life. 

In just a few minutes, I will be off and running to buy my favorite bunch of flowers and locally grown produce.  I am sure I will run into several people I know, so I have scheduled my first appointment for after lunch, allowing me ample time to chat with friends and enjoy the bountiful pleasures of the Grants Pass, Oregon Grower's Market.

Melinda - A very refreshing post to start my day, thanks for sharing. I thought it quite a coincidence that we also have a growers market on Saturday morning and it's in an empty lot by the post office. Enjoy your day. - Mike

Mike & Sheryl ~ It must be refreshing to start everyday in paradise in Maui.

David ~ And the organic vegetables cost a lot less at the Grower's Market.
