REDMOND, OR -- The Redmond Farmers Market returns for another season this week, offering all sorts of locally produced foods, beverages, and crafts.
Marketing manager Megan Burton tells KBND News the market has expanded in Centennial Park in downtown Redmond, creating a festival atmosphere. “I know that our vendor coordinator has been giving everybody a little extra room, just to kind of fill that area. We’ve got live music, and a couple of food trucks coming down each week, as well.” Some families can stretch their dollar a little further this year, too, according to Burton “We went through the process that we could accept SNAP and then that also has the Double Up option for people. So, that when they use those dollars at the Farmers Market, if they use $20, they actually get $40 worth of produce.”
The market features local vendors and farmers. “We kind of try to stick to the Redmond, as well as the Madras, (and) Sisters folks. We have a few from Bend coming out. And that’s kind of the fun of the farmers market season is we kind of all have a different day, so, anybody can find a market that works for them and find a market to go to,” Burton says.
The Redmond Farmers Market runs Thursdays from 3 to 6 PM, through September, in Centennial Park.
