The Farmers' Markets Are Open
Spring means the beginning of the long and bountiful outdoor market season in Eugene. Farmers' markets are a great place to shop for fresh veggies, fruit, eggs and grass-fed meats. In April, the markets start to open with early root vegetables, onions and spring greens and preserved fruits and berries. By June there are markets in almost every community across Lane County and they are in full swing — robust with fresh local vegetables, fruits and flowers.
Explore our locavore culture for seasonal highlights. Natural food stores also display an array of local produce from regional farms. And during the summer, drive scenic back-country roads to shop farm stands or gather berries at u-pick farms.

If you are local, you may wish to consider joining Community Support Agriculture (CSA). These programs are designed in many different ways, but most require a purchasing commitment in exchange for a share in a farm's crops. Some deliver different sizes of food boxes to designated drop sites, others even deliver to your home! Some even offer online ordering selection from a co-op of farms.
