The La Grande Farmers' Market is pleased to present our official poster for 2013. This poster was painted by local water-colorist Ann Yoder. The carrots featured in the poster were actually purchased by the artist at our market. You are invited to come on down to the market on Opening Day: Saturday, May 18, 2013. The vendors will be ready to serve you starting at 9:00 AM. Ann Yoder will be on hand to sign copies of her poster that will be available for purchace. The market is located at the corner of Adams and 4th in Downtown La Grande.
Located in beautiful Eastern Oregon, the La Grande Farmers' Market is a seasonal open-air market featuring fresh local produce, baked goods, specialty foods, quality meat, eggs, garden products, arts, crafts, and live music.
