I support People's farmer;s market because it has stayed true to it's mission, it's vision, the community for the 15 years it has been in the community. It supports small family farms, organic and truly sustainable agriculture, and the farmer's are empowered to be part of the over all running of the market. It's truly a neighborhood,local farmer's market, that has grown with the community, not on the community.

I love this farmer's market because it gives me a chance to sell my produce without having to compete with large farms thta have lots of employees. I love the small farm atmosphere and the people who shop here are one-on-one with the farmers who grow the food. There is an awareness and a commitment to buying locally produced food.

As a Coop, People's provides an invaluable service to the inner SE community, and the farmer's market is just one of the many community building resources it supports.

People's Farmers Market has a fabulous set of farmers who come to it. The Farmers Market is diverse enough and you can learn from the vendors. People's Farmers Market is the best!

I chose to pick up my CSA share from Gee Creek Farm at Peoples this year instead of the huge downtown market because it's convenient to stop by after work. So glad I made this choice, because it's a wonderful experience just being there, and handy to stop in the store and pick up bulk items I need. Feels like stepping back in time and gives me hope for the future seeing young people committed to the values some of us old fogies have retained. Last Wednesday, the farmers were out in record heat and there was a big jug of iced lemonade, a water drip for cooling, and lovely music. Maybe not as many shoppers as usual, but obvious that the heat wasn't keeping a loyal core away. Count me among them from now on.

When it comes to being truly green the People's Co-Op building building takes the cake. It is made from cob, which is 100% eco-friendly material. It is also energy and water efficient complete with natural percolators, or bioswales, to keep polluted water out of rivers and streams in Oregon. The community there is also extremely warm and friendly making the People's Farmers Market a more-than-wonderful experience.

They are year round, all organic, and in the courtyard at People's Coop, so can do other food shopping all in the same trip to the market. Thanks.
