Event Description

NEDCO is proud to announce the third season of Springfield Farmers’ Market, an open air public market located in the heart of downtown Springfield on Main Street between 5th and 6th. The market will operate from 3PM to 7PM this season to better serve neighborhood residents and other customers who work during regular business hours. Springfield Farmers’ Market is Springfield’s first seasonal farmers’ market to enter a third season – we invite the community to help us make this our best season yet.

In 2010, Springfield Farmers’ Market will continue to offer fresh, local produce, and will also provide a schedule of exciting, family friendly community events every week. The opening day extravaganza is sure to please. Join us for a Mother’s Day Card Making Workshop for kids provided by Emerald Art Center, a composting workshop presented by the OSU Extension compost specialists, and drawings for prizes. All evening, shoppers can enjoy live music and entertainment throughout downtown Springfield. Along with us, many downtown establishments will remain open during the evening and invite shoppers to explore what downtown Springfield has to offer.

Springfield Farmers’ Market accepts credit, debit and SNAP benefits (food stamps), and is easily accessible with parking close at hand and wide aisles to stroll through. Take it from a customer who said “Our Farmer's Market in downtown Springfield has brought a breath of fresh air to the downtown area that has been hard hit by the recession. Springfield [Farmers’] Market is full of lovely products and lovely people, and there is an air of community there, that I have not found in other markets.”

Springfield Farmers’ Market is a program of NEDCO (Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation). The market exists to provide fresh, local produce and food, to generate economic opportunities for local farmers and vendors, and to actively participate in revitalization of downtown Springfield. Fresh and Lively Every Friday in Downtown Springfield!
