A new way to shop at The Beaverton Farmers Market: Tips for navigating the market

To say that these are difficult times is an understatement. The unprecedented situation in which we find ourselves has changed how we define normal.

Oregon farmers markets remain open as a source of top-quality groceries for our communities. We are grateful to be able to continue providing this service to our friends and neighbors.

Each day we face new challenges in the changing saga of the COVID-19 pandemic and some of them require creative thinking in order to keep the market going. With this in mind, we changed the market layout to accommodate both drive through and walk through traffic. We do this in order to maintain a comfortable social distance between people and to offer those that need to minimize exposure an alternative way to shop at the market.

To maintain a safe and healthy market we follow the guidelines recommended by the Oregon Farmers Market Association under the guidance of the Oregon Department of Agriculture and Governor Kate Brown. Thank you to the Beaverton community for allowing us to continue to nourish you in these uncertain times.

Tips for Navigating the Market:

  • The vehicle entrance for the market is on 3rd Street and accessed via Hall Blvd.
  • Pedestrians are always welcome, provided shoppers can maintain adequate social distancing (6 feet).
  • Please be mindful that there will be both vehicular traffic and foot traffic happening at the same time. Cars will make purchases from one side of vendors’ booths, pedestrians on the other side.
  • Do not park in front of a vendor’s booth, get out of your car and wander around.
  • Vehicle traffic is heavy in the first hour. The line of cars will be shorter if you wait an hour or so to drive thru. Vendors have plenty of product in stock so don’t worry about not being able to get the items you came for.

Market Guidelines:

  • Please drive slowly and follow marked signs. Follow any directions from volunteers and market staff. They are there to ensure safety and separation for pedestrian traffic and keep the flow running timely.
  • If you have any symptoms or believe you may have been exposed please stay home.
  • If possible, send only one member of your household to shop at the market.
  • We ask that you not touch anything unless you intend to purchase. If you do touch something you may be asked to buy it.
  • Talk to your neighbors and consider sending one shopper for more than one household.
  • Vendors will take their normal form of payments. If you would like to reduce using cash you can purchase tokens from the Info Booth.
  • Please keep a safe distance (at least 6 feet) between you and other people.
  • Please wash and/or sanitize your hands often.
  • After completing your purchases please do not linger in the market.

Fraga Farmstead Creamery

Fraga Farmstead Creamery is Oregon’s only certified organic goat dairy. We milk 72 very happy goats, turning the milk into a wide range of delicious cheese as well as goat milk caramel. . We have been licensed Animal Welfare Approved since 2019. Our cheeses are available at New Seasons Market and regional farmers markets, as well as at Co-Ops in the Portland Metro Area. Pick up at the farm can also be arranged.

Our kids spend their days roaming open pasture with their moms and inventing new ways to have fun – from getting their heads stuck in fences to jumping off our homemade pallet swing. Every season about twenty kids are born. We keep a little less than half of the does as milkers and the rest are put up for adoption.

Our cheeses include Farmhouse Chipotle, Fenugreek, Foster Lake Camembert, Goatarella and Organic Chevre

Lonely Lane Farms

Patty and Mike Kloft of Lonely Lane Farms are third and fifth generation family farmers from Mount Angel. We offer grass-fed and grass-finished meats raised sustainably in the Willamette River Valley. You’ll know the Kloft’s Beaverton Farmers Market booth from the red-and-white checked tablecloths and board listing dozens of specialty items—all cut and processed on the farm at their USDA-inspected facility.

All of Lonely Lane’s meats including traditional sausages like Bratwurst, Kielbasa, Merguez, and Chorizo are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free. It started due to the fact that Mike has food allergies, but Patty and Mike prefer it that way, because it means their sausages, jerkies, and other specialties are high-quality with no fillers.
