With National Guard Armory remodel about to start, Ashland’s Tuesday market moves to SOU campus

The Rogue Valley Growers and Crafters Market opens a new location at 1554 Webster St., at the northwest corner of Ashland Street and Walker Avenue, on Tuesday, June 7.

The Tuesday Ashland Market has been held in the parking lot of the Ashland National Guard Armory since 2006. Browsers find a wide variety of choices, including master gardeners, master preservers and nonprofit booths, plus buskers and Mikey the Balloon Man for entertainment.

The Ashland National Guard Armory has a remodeling project coming up and the market will not be able to operate there during the construction. The new market location is next to Southern Oregon University housing, across Walker Avenue from Starbucks, and across Ashland Street from Market of Choice.

There will be parking on site at the market, as well as off Walker Avenue. Customer parking can also be accessed off Stadium Street.

The Tuesday market will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. through November.

The new site offers room for 102 booths, up from 80 spaces for farmers, crafters and artisan food producers at the armory location. 

Market managers expect to be at the new location for three years.

SNAP/EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards are accepted. The Double Up Food Bucks program is in effect, with a daily market match of $20 this year.
