The Need

The Lane County Farmers Market serves as a vibrant community meeting place where people from all walks of life come together in pursuit of healthy, locally grown foods. More than 10,000 people visit the farmers market on a busy Saturday, bringing economic benefits to local farmers and food artisans as well as other downtown businesses. Now is the right time to expand Eugene’s longest running farmers market.

Our Vision

We propose to partner with the City of Eugene and Lane County to redevelop our market site at 8th Avenue and Oak Street. We are open to configurations that would keep the farmers market at its current 8th and Oak Street location, allowing us to expand and improve our current space. The new development could include:


  • Roughly 48,000 sq. ft. of outdoor vending space.

  • Adequate space for customer circulation and gathering spaces to make it a shopping destination where consumers can spend up to several hours.

  • An overall space design that could serve as a public park on non-market days.

  • A 10,000-12,000 sq. ft. covered structure to accommodate year-round market operations.
