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 visit our 2020 vendors page and fill out an application. Please forward the completed form to CFM Market Manager /P.O. Box 1501 Clatskanie Oregon 97016. Do not send the application fee, we are only trying to gauge the size of this year’s market so we can continue with our planning for the new venue on North Conyers.
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.

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.
