ITâ€™S OFFICIAL, the first week of the Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market is here! Every Tuesday in Ashland and Thursday in Medford, March through November. It is RVGCMâ€™s 30th Anniversary and we plan to make it the best season ever! There will be a photo booth, scavenger hunt, raffles and more to create an exciting and fun opening day experience for the whole family.
RVGCMâ€™s diverse, well rounded Markets offer everything your heart and palate may desire: fruits & vegetables, local honey, sustainably raised meat, free-range eggs, artisan pastas, cheese, hand spun fiber arts, delectable baked goods, jams and, starting in 2017, beer & spirits!
Vegetable starts, bedding plants and perennials are there to, not only beautify your shopping experience, but your home gardens, as well. Handcrafted goods like pottery, fine woodwork, luxurious soaps, hand-blown glass jewelry and wild-crafted goods assure your shopping bag will be full of unique, local treasures. Grab breakfast and/or lunch at one of our spectacular food trucks.
