Frequently Asked Questions

In deference to USDA laws, our markets welcome service dogs only. We ask that pets stay home or enjoy the dog park during market day.

Yes, we accept Oregon Trail cards, as well as credit and debit cards! At the information booth, your card can be swiped, and you’ll receive market tokens. These wooden tokens can be used at any booth, at any of our markets. Standard SNAP/EBT restrictions apply to Oregon Trail tokens.

Yes. These days many of the vendors have their own debit/credit transaction machines. If for any reason the vendor does not have a machine, head to our market information booth to receive wooden tokens that vendors can accept.

At the Tuesday Market in Ashland, we make portable bathrooms available, including a hand washing station. Thursday at Hawthorne Park, a bathroom structure is located for your use near the play area. During the Ashland Saturday market, in the heart of downtown, we have made special arrangements with the Standing Stone brewery to use their bathrooms. The Indoor Winter Market has bathrooms inside the facility.

No, not all products found at the market are organic. It is up to individual vendors how they wish to grow/produce/source their products. We do, however, give preference to vendors that operate locally within the Rogue Valley. Be sure to ask individual vendors what their production methods are, and why they have chosen them.

Everything produced at the market is as local as it can be! Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market is limited to growers, producers and crafters within 3 counties—Jackson, Josephine, and Siskiyou counties. Some of these vendors may choose to source materials and ingredients outside of our valley. Be sure to ask individual vendors about sources of their ingredients, and why they have chosen them.

WIC and Senior Nutrition Farm Direct checks can be used at any market booth that displays a sign indicating participation in the Oregon Farm Direct Nutrition Program. Most farms at the market are participants in the WIC/SNAP program.
