Veterans of previous seasons are beginning to refine their maker goods, eye their gardening implements, dog-ear their seed catalogues, and scribble out grandiose plans for their market galleries and spring gardens.  They know the rewarding hard work of the summer market season never really ends.  It continues through the winter and into the spring.  Market vendors live for this opportunity; we would have it no other way.  If this sparks your imagination, you may be one of us.

While we all continue to experience uncertainty regarding COVID-19, the Market will open this year. Saturday June 5th is the day.   Cope’s Park will again host our relentless efforts to bring to the community fresh vegetables, wildly imaginative arts and crafts and the best of maker goods.  Cope’s has proven to be safe and comfortable in these COVID times.  Wanda, our market manager, will effortlessly guide us through what we fully expect will be another successful year.

You will find that our Market family is full of welcome and fun to work with.  Market day is one of those exquisite times in the life of a community when folks come together to celebrate their good fortune, hard work and abundance with good cheer.

There really is no better place to be on summer Saturdays.  Come join us.

3/6/21: Market season 2021 will be Saturdays from 10am-2pm June – September in Cope’s Park. The Market Board continues to monitor county and state level COVID-19 developments as we make preparations for the upcoming Market season. 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. Welcome to our 8th season!

The Board continues to derive their operational planning steps from the county and state guidelines, as well the Oregon Farmers Markets Association (OFMA) and the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA). Thank you for remaining flexible as the ongoing pandemic requires the ability of all to pivot quickly.

To accommodate all of our vendors and shoppers safely, we have decided to remain in Cope’s Park for our 8th season, though we are discontinuing to offer the online ordering/prepay/drive-by pick-up option.

The Board will present our 2021 Operational Plan and Safety Protocols as the opening day of the season draws nearer.

The 2021 annual vendor orientation information will be published soon. The annual vendor orientation is a requirement for acceptance into the market.

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.
