The website calls itself the "The original Saturday Market, the oldest weekly open air crafts festival in the U.S."

It's pretty cool. But I think they can smell my big city attitude now when I visit.

When I was a teenager growing up in the Eugene area I fit right in. I had long hair, walked with my head down, didn't dress very nicely. It was here in the Farmer's Market portion that me and my friend would come often and try to find the hottest peppers that we could stomach. We worked our way up from mild to searing hot with each visit.

The Market is a great place to find unique crafts, excellent food, and people who walk to the beat of a different drum.

The lesser visited Tuesday Market is on the same grounds and is primarly farm goods.

open from 10 am to 5 pm (morning is the best time)

Address: 8th and Oak St.
Directions: Pretty darn close to downtown.
