Corvallis-Albany Farmers' Markets

Corvallis-Albany Farmers' Markets operates outdoor farmers' markets that are known for their wide selection of local Willamette Valley organic and conventionally grown fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, nursery plants and herbs. Homemade baked goods, jams, preserves, syrups, honey, cheese, eggs, nuts, meats and poultry broaden the offerings and help extend the market season. Sustainable meat and poultry in particular have expanded in recent years as more farmers strive to help consumers replace quantity with quality.

We focus on farm direct marketers whose farms are in a six county area: Benton, Linn, Lincoln, Lane, Marion and Polk counties. The few non-grown vendors in our markets (bakers and restaurants) are held to high standards of local sourcing.

As our mid-April to late November season progresses, the colorscape of the markets evolves from a sea of many greens, punctuated by a flashes of red and white, to the full palette of fall colors. Our larger farmers grow a lot under cover to extend seasons, so you may see produce over a longer span than you expect.

Music and special events add to the community atmosphere. Extras include hands-on children's activities, cooking demonstrations and tastings. Most events are carried out by community organizations and other volunteers.

Corvallis Saturday, the youngest of our three farmers' markets, takes place on city streets adjacent to Riverfront Commemorative Park, near several restaurants and other food-related businesses.

Corvallis Wednesday operates in a portion of the Saturday site. See the feature box for more details.

Albany, a Saturday market, is located in the City Hall parking lot and on an adjacent street that fronts the Linn County Courthouse.

A separate organization runs the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market, which runs from mid-January until the week before CAFM opens the outdoor season. The two organizations cover 46 weeks a year.

Latest Reviews

The Corvallis-Albany Farmers Market is a wonderful market in a beautiful setting between a riverfront park and a still-vibrant downtown. The knowledgeable vendors have excellent produce, and the breads, honey, goat cheese, and other farm-related goods available are of high quality and delicious. Plants and flowers also abound.

This is a vigorous street fair devoted to local, often--even usually--organic fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, breads, cheeses. It has farmers whose passion and life work has resulted in the most luscious melons, berries, and tree fruits that can be grown in the area.... [more]

A wonderful community energy of smiles, song, children and good food along the Willamette River where people enjoy each other in an atmosphere of goodwill where the essence of democracy and the common good is alive and well.
