Local farm information | Moms

Spring has sprung, gardens are growing and the local farms and markets are opening!

U-pick is one of my favorite summer activities with the kids. It gets them outdoors, keeps them entertained and hopefully encourages them to eat some fresh produce.

Whether you simply want to purchase locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables or pick them yourself, there are plenty of options around the Umpqua.

Here is a list of farms and markets that are now open or opening soon. Slather on some sunscreen and grab a bucket (or simply your wallet) and enjoy the summer harvest!

Tip: Like your favorite farms and markets on Facebook to stay up to date on availability and u-pick information. Check out this produce timetable for approximate dates for produce availability.
