Springfield Friday Farmers' Market

By

The above mural is what you see when you pull up to the Springfield Farmers' market. The market is open every Friday (during the growing season) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The market is located between 5th & 6th Streets on Main Street in downtown Springfield. It is being held in the Springfield Museum parking lot.

When I was there today, there weren't very many vendors, but the ones there seemed to have a lot of great produce that was grown locally. I purchased some yellow grape tomatoes and lemon cucumbers. I guess it was my day to go yellow.

Personally, I can't wait until sweet corn and ripe red tomatoes are on the list of available produce. There were red tomatoes available, but weren't ripe, so I passed. For me, there is nothing better than Willamette Valley sweet corn on the cob. Of course, it should be dripping in butter, that makes it soooo good for you. LOL

Since we had a fairly late spring, I saw something I didn't expect, and that was these outstanding strawberries. Just so you know, our strawberries are the best for flavor. These are really colorful, but I didn't try them for flavor.

There were also colorful flowers on display for sale. If you were hungry, there are also refreshments available. So, try the Springfield Farmers' Market.  See you there!

Fred- Neat photos.  The mural looks so much like a quilt I had to do a double take.  I enjoy Saturday markets but haven't been to Salem's in a while.  There was a vendor at the Salem Art Fair who, I understand, is at the Eugene Saturday market.  He makes spiders and bats out of metal.  I fell in love with them and I have to make a trip down there to get  couple.

I think I will hit the Saturday Market tomorrow and post some pics of it next. Thanks for your comments. When you say the photos are neat, I respect that, yours are always so good.

Mmm...looks delicious Fred! Years ago I planted some mini yellow plum tomatoes - probably a grandparent to the yellow grapes you talk of -- they were absolutely scruptious and the best part was they reseeded and grew back for a couple of years! Makes me sad I don't have them out there today!

Thanks for the wonderful photos of your market!
