Farmers Markets: Fuel For Adventures

Explore what makes the Corvallis area delightfully different when you discover the variety of farm-fresh treasures found at the local farmers' markets - with three to choose from, you’re bound to find the right fuel for whatever your adventure. Sample local honey and pair it with locally made bread. Connect with the farmer and uncover new ways to try fresh veggies, meat, or even something exotic-to-you like pickled quail eggs! You may potentially find art that makes you, or whomever you decide to gift it to, feel special.

Join the bustle with other foodie adventurers. You can find the Corvallis Farmers Market downtown on Saturday and Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. to  1 p.m., April through November. Check out the bounty from local and surrounding county farms. Both markets are located on NW 1st Street and NW Jackson.

For an easy adventure, pick up snacks and find a picnic spot by the Willamette River right next to the market on the Riverfront Commemorative Park or a shaded bench a few blocks away at the historic Benton County Courthouse.

The newest market to arrive in town is located at 1435 NW 9th Street, between Hayes and Grant, on the mural side of High Quality Lifestyle Store and Dispensary. The 9th Street Community Market is open bi-monthly on Sundays from April 30 through Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. While it’s not a farmer’s market selling locally grown food, it does feature around 24 booths of crafters, makers, and artists of all kinds, with the occasional local food truck and live music. It's also pet friendly!

While there, enjoy the mural by Erik Hoogan. If you want to see more of Corvallis’ murals around town, be sure to download our map, “Corvallis Murals Scavenger Hunt.”

Feel a part of the community when the friendly vendors greet you at what is sometimes called "Tuesday Market" in Southtown, A.K.A. South Corvallis. This "very local neighborhood farmstand event" is held on Tuesday evenings, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., May through October, at Flicker & Fir’s urban farm, 1465 SE Alexander Ave, off of 99W.

It is at the end of the road, so if you drive there, street parking is across Crystal Lake Drive on SE Alexander (and if you’re lucky, you may come across a human-sized nest under a redwood tree!). If you have extra time, walk around the neighborhood filled with artists and admire the colorful homes of residents at CoHo Ecovillage.

If you’re heading to Mary’s Peak or the coast for a Sunday afternoon adventure, swing by the Philomath Farmer’s Market. This community market is held on Sundays June through October from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Philomath Library parking lot at 1050 Applegate Street. From Corvallis, head down Highway 20. When in town, two blocks past a fantastic brunch spot, The Dizzy Hen, turn left on South 11th, cross Highway 20/Applegate, and look for parking.

In past years treasure hunters encountered quail eggs - grown not far from that lot - and an international award-winning chocolate, Moku, made by a Philomath resident. Who knows what you’ll discover this year!
