Opening Day at the Grants Pass, Oregon Farmers Market & Summer Festival Schedule

The weather report called for rain, but the sun was shining as I embarked north to the Farmers Market. Last Saturday  was our first time to set up at the Growers Market located at 4th ST & F ST , behind the Post Office in Grants Pass, Josephine County, Oregon this year. It was great to see familiar faces of both vendors and customers again. The farmers are selling onions, squash, greens and plants for your garden. If you get a chance to come to Oregon, the farmers markets are a must! The earth is plentiful here in the great Pacific Northwest!
Spring Romance Collection
While it's still too early in the season for my favorite flower vendors to be selling. But new spring scarves and flowers plus Joyflower's Vintage Romance Collection is now available at the Farmers Market and in my Etsy Shoppe. Joy's hand painted silk flowers and fancy vintage lace and ribbon are perfectly on trend for spring and summer weddings.
