Camas Farmers' Market Opening Day - TOMORROW!

The much anticipated Opening Day of Market is here! Come down tomorrow, Wednesday the 26th for an opening ceremony, fresh produce (yes we will have produce despite our wacky weather), beautiful flowers, veggie starts, herbs, foraged mushrooms, ice cream, lamb, hummus, jams, cheesecake, artisan breads, tamales, gyros, jumbo, coffee beans, farm fresh eggs, handcrafted cheese, yogurt and so much more!

The market opens at 3:00pm on NE 4th Avenue between NE Everett and NE Franklin in front of the Camas Public Library. The market will be closing at 7:30pm this year, giving you a little bit more time for after work shopping and enjoying dinner with the family.

Join us as we welcome back our returning vendors and build relationships with new farmers and producers!

Did you know when you use reusable shopping bags at Whole Foods you can donate your bag refund to the Market. Those 10 cent donations add up quickly to help grow your market.

Congratulations to Raya Klein, the winner of the market basket drawing at the Camas Health Fair.

Looking for a unique gift for your child's teachers? Gift them tokens to be used at the Market. Purchase the tokens at the information booth and support local farmers, producers and your local economy!
