Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market History

The Medford Growers & Crafters Market began in the summer of 1987 under the umbrella of the Grants Pass Growers Market. It was located at E. Main and Bartlett. In 1988, it moved to 8th and Holly. Grants Pass decided at the end of 1988 that they were not interested in continuing to manage the market and the vendors created a board, by-laws and Articles of Incorporation.

The next move came in 1990 to 10th and Front where the market stayed for several years. The City required the market to be held in the downtown core area, but space and parking were constant issues. In 1993, the market underwent a name change to: Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market.

The next move for the Medford market was a location on Almond Street, and was a true test for the market’s survival. The permit to move after several more years to the Sears parking lot in Medford was very welcome. There the market occupied various spots in the Medford Center as construction dictated.

In 2006, Thursday market then moved to The Medford Armory, where it enjoyed healthy growth for ten years. Due to planned renovations during the summer of 2016, RVGCM had to find a new location. After much deliberation by the Site Committee, RVGCM chose the newly renovated Hawthorne Park at E. Jackson and Hawthorne Park Streets to establish Thursday markets for 2016 and hopefully many years to come.

In 2017, our Saturday Medford market moves to it’s new home at Hawthorne Park, as well. We are excited to consolidate our Medford locations and hope you will bike, walk run on down.
