The Grants Pass Winter Growers Market is the oldest and largest outdoor farmers’ market in Southern Oregon, it has led the region in connecting farmers and their products directly to their customers. At the Growers’ Market, in season, are the ripest and freshest local fruits and vegetables within approximately 500 miles. From asparagus to zucchini, the Growers’ Market showcases a constantly changing variety of products. Over 150 members attend the Growers’ Market serving from 300 to 5,000 visitors per Saturday.
