It's still a little ways away, but I'm getting super excited for this years Rocky Butte farmers market season! I'm curious to see who our new farmers and makers will be and looking forward to welcoming back some vendors from 2021.
This year, the Rocky Butte Farmers Market is partnering with Sparrowhawk Native Plants and Dharma Rain to bring more native plants to the communities of Rocky Butte. We're hoping to see thousands of native plants into our communities - while raising money for our beloved neighborhood market! This event is helping to raise funds for our market's transition to a weekly cadence.
There are 2 ways you can be a farmers market supporter:
1) order plants beginning 2/15 and mark your pick-up location as Dharma Rain. (Save the date!)
2) sign up to assist in plant distribution at Dharma Rain.

We're shifting into a weekly format!
That's right! After a bit of deliberation and a lot of thought and planning, the RBFM team has decided to expand the market to occur every week beginning this June! It was clear that our monthly format was well received but that patrons wanted more. Concurrently we found that many of our vendors, as well as vendors who we're wanting to attract, are hoping for an increase in market frequency. It was clear that going weekly was the right direction for us to take.
We're returning to the Mannahouse Church parking lot at the base of Rocky Butte - 9200 NE Fremont St. Our market will run Saturdays from June 4th through September 24th, 9am - 1pm.
Our vendor application will go live the beginning of February. Please pass on the word to your favorite farmer or food maker. We are looking for new vendors to join us!
