Tualatin Farmers Market has a mission to make Tualatin an example community of active, healthy people by providing affordable access to local fresh produce and farm products directly from local farms through a weekly farmers market. We are “feeding community.”
The Tualatin Farmers Market was started by and is operated by Tualatin area citizens. We are an Oregon non-profit corporation and a federally recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.
Tualatin Farmers Market was a concept that started with a few local residents in conjunction with the Tualatin Tomorrow Vision Implementation. The Tualatin Tomorrow Visioning Committee heard from Tualatin residents that they are looking for a) a feeling of connectedness within the community; b) a strong, active town center; c) the ability to shop locally; and d) Tualatin to be a healthy, active community.
In the spring of 2009, the Tualatin Farmers Market Committee was established to bring this health focused community event to Tualatin, and in the summer of 2010, the innaugural season of the Tualatin Farmers Market was held.
