Damascus Farmers Market
The Damascus Farmers Market has closed for the 2017 season. As many of you know, our trailer, equipment and supplies were stolen earlier in the season. We had to close for a couple of weeks due to that robbery. Unfortunately our attendance has been steadily declining since that time, and we lost several vendors due to our closure. While we were able to recover most of our equipment and supplies, the trailer has not been recovered.  
 
We are grateful for the support of our community partners, and for our loyal and committed vendors and customers. We look forward to seeing you all in the 2018 season.
 
Stay tuned for exciting news about our 2018 season!

Another beautiful day predicted for our Market this Thursday! The Damascus Farmers Market is located in the gorgeous Damascus Centennial Park - lush green grass, shade, a playground full of delightful nooks and crannies, excellent tunes, delicious tamales and the best, freshest produce this side of the Columbia River. Have I mentioned what incredible quality we have at our Market? Last week someone mentioned it is not about the quantity but all about the quality. We know Damascus is a little bit out of the way for many folk - I do not know about you but going a little bit out of the way for a lovely afternoon surrounded by nature, friendly, happy people and high quality produce and wares takes a bit of priority for me.  This year we have had more kids than ever running around having so much fun, making giant bubbles and getting to know some delightful local farmers and artisans - it makes my heart happy! Come check us out - you will not be sorry!
This week we are excited to host Rick McNutt - he brings us some Jazz with an international flair from Nuyorico, Cuba and Brazil.
The Community Booth features the Friends of the Clackamas Library - lots of great books and movies for a low, low price to add to your personal collection. 
We have had to place our tokens for children and seniors on hold as we raise funds to purchase a new trailer to replace the one we had stolen. I gotta tell  you, though - it is breaking my heart to turn away these sweet littles hoping for a couple of bucks to spend on fresh fruits and veggies. SO! Starting this week we will go back to offering our children and seniors $2 in tokens if they stop by the Info Booth and chat with the lovely ladies that volunteer to run this booth.

Our Small But Mighty Farmers Market is truly delightful! As I cruised around, visiting with vendors and customers alike, I could not help but be so proud of what we offer our community. The quality of food and wares provided by some of the most talented, kind and generous folk is truly awesome - do not take my word for it though! Come experience it yourself!! Traffic going through Damascus can be a bit challenging - why be frustrated? Grab a parking place at BiMart and come relax in a beautiful park, listen to some excellent tunes and do not forget to grab a bite at either Sara's Tamales (handmade mexican food) or Nature's Old Time Meats (local pasture raised meat for eating now or taking home frozen!!), followed up with shopping for the best produce and handcrafted wares in the area!

Vibrant, Incredible Produce!  
The Damascus Farmers Market will be open this Thursday, August 18, from 3 to 7 PM.

This week we feature the Lewis & Clark Montessori Adolescent Corps (MAC) – these young folk are in middle school, and run an incredible farming program. This is led by Fred Weiler, farmer extraordinaire. Under Fred’s leadership, and along with Suzanne Haddix and Beverly Bassett, farm fresh produce is distributed weekly to senior citizens facing food scarcity in the Damascus/Boring area. Each week they set up their booths at the Market – students and volunteers put together these farm fresh baskets which are then either delivered or picked up by the seniors at the Market. The seniors then also receive tokens to purchase more fresh fruits and veggies that day. Home gardeners are encouraged to bring in their garden abundance and donate to this wonderful program. The folks involved with this program LOVE to have people stop by – words of encouragement and offers to join in the fun are very welcome!

We are so honored that Sky in The Road is coming once again to play at our Market. Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest write and perform songs in that magical place where heaven meets earth, their blend of ethereal and rhythmic, of eternal and temporal – where the Sky meet the Road.

Afternoon Delight at Damascus Centennial Park!  
The Damascas Farmers Market will be open this Thursday, August 4, from 3 to 7 PM.

I often wonder, as I work each week with such a giving, loyal group of volunteers, farmers and artisan’s alike, what are things we can be doing to invigorate our Market with a strong showing of customers from week to week? As a fairly new (5 years!) Market, we find after each season that we have grown and changed so much from what we learned that season. We have many things in our favor – a gorgeous, shaded, fun location, consistency & quality in farmers, artisans, and product, a solid crew of dedicated volunteers and cheerleaders, nice variety of incredibly talented musicians (many of whom love to come back each year!), customer incentives, very cute shopping bags, great community partners and lots more. The major thing we lack are Customers! We ask you, community members and friends, share your thoughts with us – we exist for you, local community members to enjoy – what sorts of things might hold you back from visiting us each week? Feel free to share your comments here with us – we appreciate it!

This week we feature Stadnikov Farms – Vladimir has been with our Market for about 3 years now. His honey is Top Notch – not only is it local and yummy, but he brings it in a very natural state. He also brings some vibrant and delicious produce!

Chuck Bolsinger, accompanied by his granddaughter, Shanea, will play flute, guitar and vocals as they delight our senses with a variety of folk, pop, jazz, blues, gospel, and some original music. Shanea plays in the Metropolitan Youth Symphony and just returned from a gig in China. Let’s show this dynamic duo a great crowd – stop by for a bit of enjoyment in the afternoon!

The Community Booth this week features the Underdog Railroad Rescue, a local organization rescuing dogs from over-crowded shelters. The dogs are fostered until their forever homes are found.

As always, we are always looking for volunteers to join our crew. We consider ourselves quite fortunate indeed when volunteers stumble across us by accident and find a fit for themselves. We have had several folks join our crew this season, and we are thankful.

Our customer incentives are going strong each week. Support your local farmers and artisans by shopping at our lovely little Market, and get a few extra dollars to spend while you are it! Win for everyone!

First 10 customers who purchase $20 in tokens will receive an extra $5 in tokens.

Thursday of Delights!

 The Damascus Farmers Market will be open this Thursday, from 3 to 7 PM. After missing last week due to rain, we are ready to get to Market this week! Lots of exciting happenings this week – Read on for details!

 
Did you know that the LCMCS Montessori Adolescent Corps (MAC) plants, grows and harvests fruits and veggies at its own farm? That the produce is then given to approximately 30 to 40 seniors in our community who have food scarcity issues? Each week MAC and volunteers harvest and package a box of goodies (supplemented by Thompson Farms and Gleaners), then deliver to these seniors. Starting this week, the Helping Hands for the Hungry program will be on site at the Market where they will be accepting donations from farmers, home gardeners and customers as they package up the goods. So! When you purchase some fresh food to take home with you, perhaps you want to purchase an extra bag of carrots and donate to the HHH program? As of last week, they had donated 192 lbs. of fresh food to seniors – how fantastic is that?

This week we feature Thompson Farms. Larry Thompson and his crew have been longtime supporters of this Market, as well as a real fixture in our community. One can find his goodies throughout the region, at stands and markets alike. Thompson Farms produce is consistently fresh, delicious and reasonably priced! We appreciate his participation in our Market, and even more so, his commitment to helping our community in general be a better, healthier place.

We expect two new vendors this week, including a sandwich booth and local artist Susie Helmer will be present with her stained glass creations, recycled wine bottles and more!

Sky in the Road will be at Market this week to tickle our ears with their blend of ethereal and rhythmic tunes – we look very much forward to their performance and sure hope you come out to enjoy it as well!

The Community Booth this week features the Clackamas County Fire District #1. Learn about ways to reduce the chances of a serious fall in and around your home. Other resources will be available too, so come on by!

Volunteers help us to create a vibrant community – what better place to put our energy than in our very own backyard? Our Market is more than just a market – we are a community event, each week, bringing together folks of all different backgrounds, interests, ages and more. Now is the time to get involved! Volunteers are welcome in many different ways – from planning, organizing and physically helping on the day of the Market. Send us a note and let’s chat about how you can get involved! Set up (1:30 PM) and Take down (7 PM) are two really tangible ways to just jump in and get to know folks. Join us!

Being part of our community means supporting our neighbors – Huge thanks goes to the Happy Valley-Damascus Kiwanis Club for their general support of our Market, and also for organizing and scheduling the Community Booth each week. We love to partner with others in our community!

Lots of thanks go to Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School – they act as our fiscal sponsor, which allows us to access much needed grant funds in order to support our mission. In addition to that, we work very well together and partner in many different ways – we love that place!

Our customer incentives are going like hot cakes each week – come by the Info booth upon your arrival and check in to see what special deals we still have available:

Damascus Farmers Market

A True Community

The Damascus Farmers Market gives us a chance, as a community, to come together.

As a Market worker who has worked many farm markets (Sandy, Milwaukie, Mt Hood Hospital), I see strong community connections happening in Damascus.

Besides the buying and selling of wonderful goods, we see children playing in the middle of the stands, people eating and chatting at tables while listening to music, even some dancing or at least some toe tapping. Neighbors talk to neighbors, friends talk to friends, and vendors talk to everyone. There are contests and laughter and plenty of hugs among friends.

In addition to very fresh produce, eggs, desserts and dinners. There is information galore about classes, health and senior programs. Fine crafts are available in the form of jewelry, wood turned bowls, soaps and healing balms. There are clever signs available for your garden or farm, homemade jams and salsas, and the finest garden starts you’ll ever find.

Come for dinner each Thursday and take home some local produce for the rest of the week. Sure beats the produce that has been on the shelves of a box store for over a week!

Buy your unique and handmade gifts here, learn about the latest community offerings, and even the latest gossip! Buy the kids a snack (berries!) or just take some time out to play with them.

Let’s make Damascus a true community! See you there!

Customers! Farmers! Artists! Musicians! Community Organizations! And the best part is that we HAVE all that!

So, yes, we are small - and we are Mighty! It is our pleasure to work at making this Market the best in our area, and we need you, your support and energy to carry on with this lovely weekly community event. So check out what we have coming this week and we look forward to seeing you! Please share our site and Facebook page with your friends, family and neighbors. Heck!
