Good news: we’re back!
Last year, the Rocky Butte Farmers Market held two very successful pop-up markets, and this year we’ve expanded to five monthly markets, thanks to a groundswell of community support. The markets will take place on the first Saturday of each month from June to October 2020, and will run from 9am to 1pm each day.
Confirmed market dates are:
The market will take place at Mannahouse Church, in their large parking lot at 9200 NE Fremont Street [map]. Appropriately, the church is located on the actual Rocky Butte. We are so happy to be working with the kind folks at Mannahouse on this market.
As was the case last year, the market will provide access to affordable, seasonal, and locally grown foods and artisan products, free seasonally-inspired family and youth programming, music and entertainment, and the opportunity to meet neighbors and local businesses.
Ben Cutler, President of the Rocky Butte Farmers Market, remarked, “Our primary goal is to provide a community event, anchored in the diversity of our neighbors, that brings us all together to support emerging and under-represented farmers, producers and craftspeople.”
We look forward to welcoming back many of our vendors from last year, and are excited to see new vendors join the RBFM family. Are you a vendor that would like to participate in this year’s market? Vendor applications are now available. Businesses interested in sponsoring the Rocky Butte Farmers Market 2020 season with a donation, and community members interested in volunteering at the monthly markets this summer, are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to see you at the market!
