Lincoln City Farmers Market and The Artisans Faire at Salishan are back just in time for Summer.
Stalls stocked with handmade, home-grown, and local items for sale by the makers themselves are back. Get ready to leave the Lincoln City Farmers and Crafters Market with your basket just as full as your excitement. Everybody who enters the market is required to wear a face-covering in compliance with state guidelines. Frequent hand sanitizing is strongly encouraged as well. Situated on the lawn of the Lincoln City Cultural Center, you won’t miss this marketplace as you drive by along 101 on Sundays from 9 am-2 pm. Pick up local produce or a stunning art piece made of glass or driftwood, and enjoy the live music while you're there.
A welcomed new face is the vegan food cart Stoopid Veganz. Owners Jordan and Cameron have been vegan for a combined 11 years. They found a passion for cooking vegan food at home, and during the height of the pandemic they pressed in even farther. They created a food blog and Instagram showcasing their hard work spent in quarantine building vegan recipes and creating 'meat' that is close to flavor and texture as regular meat. Their desire is to create a new outlook to vegan culture on the coast, proving that eating vegan is easy, healthy and just as delicious. Born and raised in Lincoln City, they returned home and thought it would be the perfect place to start up their business. Aside from its beauty and closeness to the beach, it was the community and local support for them that makes this place so special. Their goal to make veganism more approachable is proven by their homemade meat recipes and popular items like the BBQ Brisket and Classic Italian sandwich.
Can’t make it Sunday afternoon? You’re in luck. Down in Gleneden Beach, the Salishan Marketplace is hosting their Artisan Faire Market on Fridays and Saturdays. You'll get lost wandering around tents full of photography, produce, treats, various art and can even grab mouthwatering food from Squatchsami. A bonus of this market, situated in the parking lot of the Salishan Marketplace, is you can wander the shops and visit old and new faces. Grab a beer at Beachcrest and introduce yourselves to newer spots like Depoe Baykery or Unique and Knotty boutique.
This month we highlight Gingifers Kitchen. Jennifer and Paul "Ginger" Ingram started their business in the summer of 2013 with a dedication to making delicious jams and pickles. All of their products are made in small batches with the highest quality ingredients in order to insure the best tasting results possible. These handmade delicious jams are made with Oregon berries which can go with anything! Their pickles and garlic are mouthwatering and can be crunched on plain or thrown into your favorite dish or salad.
