2020 Vendors

Please read this important update to our 2020 season planning:

Update 5/18/2020, Written Collaboratively by the Clatskanie Farmers Market Board of Directors:

Vendors:  Welcome to the New Market

The Market season is upon us.   Opening Day is June 20th, 10am-2pm.   Buckle up.  It’s going to be fun!

The Market Board has been monitoring State level COVID-19 developments as we make preparations for the upcoming Market year.  Locally sourced food and goods are more pertinent than ever, as is maintaining the sense of Community that the Market has strived to establish over the last seven years.

The Board has devised numerous schemes as State guidelines have reached us.  Each scheme seems to work, only to be superseded by the next directive from the Oregon Farmers Markets Association (OFMA), the office of the Governor, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, or Columbia County  government offices.

We have received community input via our survey as well as from many of you individually and on social media.  Overwhelmingly, this town loves its artists, crafters, makers, musicians and foodies.  Newly announced State guidelines provide ways to accommodate a full range of vendors including almost everyone.  To date we understand that produce, arts and crafts, and value added product vendors are allowed outright.  However, some vendors simply can’t be included because of the inevitability of direct contact.   The Oregon Department of Agriculture specifically states that face painting and massage are two of these.   Phase 1 of the State guidelines also relaxes the limitations on food vendors.  Now they can sell hot foods and it can be consumed on site.  There are spacing requirements for those food vendors’ tables and chairs as well as strict requirements for sanitizing those items immediately after each use.

To accommodate all these vendors safely and within State guidelines, we have decided to return to Cope’s Park for our seventh season, and to also offer an online ordering/prepay/drive-by pick-up option on Conyers St.  *Details on the WhatsGood App coming soon!*   We expect this to be our final plan.

We celebrate our local musicians.  They inform our glory, glamour, and travails.  The State acknowledges the significance of musical acts to markets, but is also aware of the magnetic quality of that music.  It attracts crowds.  Early on, the State specifically barred their inclusion, but we continue to wait for clarification on this restriction in Phase 1.  We will hold a spot for our musicians and hope for the best.  The Board is also working on ways we can safely include educational activities, which have their social distancing limitations.  The physical arrangement of our Market is still being developed, but our goal is to follow State Best Practices for markets while we attempt to maintain a friendly, Clatskanie ambiance.  That is a tall order, but we are convinced that there are multiple ways to meet both of those goals.

While we are determined to maintain a positive “Clatskanie Vibe”, face masks, convenient and numerous hand washing stations, and 6′ social distancing is very likely to be a given throughout the summer.  These details are sure to have an effect, but what the heck, we are all in this together and while we may all have our opinions, we can at least agree to protect our friends and neighbors.  We will be announcing the annual spring vendor training dates and times soon.  All things considered, this year, (virtual) attendance is mandatory.

As we said, it is going to be fun.  If you would like to join us as a vendor either at Cope’s Park or by using the online option, or both, please sign up today!  ~ CFM

 


4/28/2020: Calling All Vendors

The Clatskanie Farmers Market is making plans. We understand that the times are uncertain and only essential business is allowed, but for now at least, farmers markets are permitted to continue operations. Various active markets have developed strict protocols for both market day and for the harvesting and handling of market products.

CFM has always focused on creating a sense of community while providing produce and hand made items, and one way or another, we hope to continue that tradition.

We encourage any of you considering becoming a vendor to fill out an application and mail to: CFM Market Manager,  PO Box 1501, Clatskanie, Oregon 97016.

It seems like pandemic news develops by the minute and we are tracking constantly, but rest assured, we are working to continue this community activity responsibly. ~ CFM

She strives to complete each piece in one session so that her work looks fresh and sketchy yet finished. Polly works in oils, acrylics, watercolor, oil pastel and charcoal. Richard Paten sells his handmade ceramics alongside Polly, and when not talking about their artistic works, Polly offers chair massage by-the-minute (TBD)!

Haven Acres II profile pic

Haven Acres II is run by a lifelong Columbia County resident who grew up participating in 4-H and raising her own kids in the 4-H program.  She was introduced to the benefits of Goat Milk soap at a goat conference back in 2001.  She dabbled at making it for a couple years and eventually came up her my own recipes to sell at bazaars and the annual goat conference.     From Leona: “Thanks to the Clatskanie Farmers Market I have had much more opportunity to introduce others to the benefits of Goat Milk soap.  Since I have very sensitive skin, using something natural without harsh additives has become important to me.  Many customers have voiced how important it is to them as well.  Along with the soap, our booth offers kitchen and bath accessories, crocheted hand towels, scrubbies, potholders, dish/bath cloths, and wooden soap dishes.”

Cedar Farm, where the patented Hizap fence extending insulator originated, has been in the Lillich family for over 50 years. It originated as a fully operational small sheep farm with around four acres of grazing and is ideally situated in the hills just outside of Clatskanie, Oregon. Over the years they have endured wild animal and canine attacks on their sheep, spent countless hours trying to protect their gardens from deer and, as good neighbors should, worked hard at keeping their own dogs on the property. These situations lead to the first prototype of the Hizap fence extending insulator, a PVC pipe extension that has been in place since 2008. It made their electric fence higher and wider.  These extenders presented a new unknown obstacle for the animal wanting to get over the fence, creating protection and containment that was un-parallel to any other insulator on the market. Now, after several field trials and further developments to its design, making it adaptable to both metal and wooden posts, the Hizap fence extending insulator was issued a U.S. Utility Patent on April 2, 2019! The fence extending insulator is sold under the Hizap registered trademark and is currently available for purchase at www.hizapit.com. Their hope is to provide peace of mind for potential customers in their endeavors to find the protection and containment that works for them.
