Forest Grove Farmers Market moves to 21st Avenue for one week

For one week only, this Wednesday, Aug. 26, the Forest Grove Farmers Market will move from its usual Main Street location to 21st Avenue between Main Street and College Way.

That's because TNT’s “The Librarians” TV show will be filming an episode on Main Street. To ameliorate the inconvenience, the show’s producers have generously paid all vendor booth fees for that day and donated to Adelante Mujeres, which runs the market. Dining tables and chairs will be moved to the United Church of Christ’s (UCC) brick courtyard on the corner of 21st and College.

In addition to the shift in market location, Wednesday is also the day of the market’s annual Salsa Fest! Competitors are asked to bring one gallon of homemade salsa to the UCC’s Courtyard at 21st and College by 3:45 p.m. Clearly label container with your name and phone number. Chips will be provided. Prize categories include Hot, Mild, and Fruity, and a general People’s Choice Award. Prizes will be $50 to the People’s Choice winner and $25 in market tokens to the others.

All market attendees are welcome to sample and vote for your favorite salsas! Questions? Call (503) 992-0078 or visit our Forest Grove Farmers Market Facebook page.
