Spencer Creek Community Growers Market

Spencer Creek Community Growers’ Market at the Grange

Our 5th market season will begin on May 31st, 2014. Our hours of operation are 10 am to 2 pm. We feature an array of seasonal veggies, locally grown berries, meat from pasture raised animals, honey and plenty of farm fresh eggs. We also have crafters and food artisans. Our emphasis and focus is offering the public a wide variety of locally grown and produced items. The Market accepts SNAP (Oregon Trail Cards), and hopefully more of our farmers will be signing up to accept WIC (Women Infants and Children) and FDNP (Food Direct Nutritional Program). If you’re a senior, or if you know a senior eligible for food stamps, get started with that process now in order to receive coupons for free produce at our market (FDNP). Please refer to the Rules and Regulations page for complete details.

Becoming a Vendor

The market takes place on Saturdays, 10 am to 2 pm and for 2014 will run from May 31st through October 4th, behind the Grange and alongside a grove of mature pine and fir trees. The Spencer Creek Grange is located at 86013 Lorane Highway at the corner of McBeth Road. Instead of commercial farmers, our sellers are largely backyard growers and hobby farmers offering locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, nursery plants, plant starts and more. Vendors are not required to attend more often than they are able and willing.

It’s easy to become a vendor. Follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Read our Rules and Regulations.
  2. Register to Become a Seller.
  3. After we have reviewed your information, we will contact you by phone. Upon approval (usually within 48 hours of registering), you will be able to log on and Reserve your space!

To Pay

Vendors pay an annual fee of $10 to join the market. An additional $5 per stall space (up to 3 spaces can be reserved) is collected on each market day attended. The $10 annual fee can be paid the first day you attend the market.

Please note that you must first register before you can sell at the market. If for any reason you are unable to use the Market Registration Form on this site, please email Glenn

WIC and FDNP Coupons

Any grower who would like to accept WIC and Farm Direct Nutritional Program (FDNP) coupons go here. You do not need a farm name or own a business to participate. You’ll find the bureaucracy involved unusually friendly and accessible. Farmers will need to fill out and sign an application with the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and complete a mandatory training coordinated by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to enroll.

2012 – Our Fourth Year

We wrapped up our fourth season on October 5th of 2013. Shoppers, vendors and musicians all expressed their enthusiasm and we have some improvements in the works for the vendor area as well as the kitchen for the 2014 season. Membership in our market continues to grow. Thinking of joining? It’s easy to become a member. Just follow the 3 steps outlined above.
