The market is happening! Governor Kate Brown has declared farmers markets essential services. Due to the pandemic, we have relocated to Neskowin Valley School for the 2020 season. The market hopes to return to our usual location at the Neskowin Beach Wayside in the future.
The Neskowin Farmers Market is a necessary source of food for many residents of Tillamook and Lincoln Counties, and we are committed to the health and well-being of our community. We are following CDC and state guidelines to prioritize customer, vendor and community health, so things will look and feel a lot different than they have in past years. Please help us keep the market open and continue supporting local farmers by observing the changes to market operations while you shop.
We are making the following changes to keep everyone safe. Please read before coming to the market!
WE ASK THAT CUSTOMERS:
- Stay home if you have any symptoms or think you may have been exposed to coronavirus/covid-19.
- Do not come to market in a group. If possible, send only 1 member of your household to shop.
- Offer to shop for a neighbor who has a higher risk of getting sick.
- Talk to a group of your neighbors and consider sending only 1 person to shop for multiple households.
- Come prepared with a shopping list to reduce the amount of time spent at market. Our vendors and their products are listed on our website, and many of them have a preorder system in place as well!
- Wash or sanitize your hands frequently using your own or the options provided.
- Wash any reusable shopping bags before bringing them to market. Vendors will not touch or pack your bags for you.
- Only touch items that you know you are going to buy!
- After completing your shopping, do not linger. There may be other people waiting to enter the market behind you.
The following are changes to market operations:
- The market will be held in Neskowin Valley School’s covered play area while the Neskowin Beach Wayside is closed. The school’s address is 10005 Slab Creek Road, about 4 miles inland from the wayside. Parking is available in the gravel lot and you will have to walk around the building to the play area.

- Vendor booths will be spaced 10 feet apart, and vendors are implementing additional safety precautions
- Only 1 shopper at a time will be allowed in a booth. Please stand on the chalk ‘X’s on the ground to maintain social distancing while waiting in line.
