The Camas Farmers Market is back and its bigger than ever.

The market kicked off its 2021 season on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, with vendors spread out along Northeast Fourth Avenue in downtown Camas, near Camas City Hall and the Camas Public Library.

Although the market ran during 2020, it had fewer vendors due to the COVID-19 pandemic and COVID-related safety measures like physical distancing.

This year, the market still has safety precautions set up to help keep vendors and visitors safe — including a mask requirement, one-way foot traffic, and hand sanitizing stations at both ends of the market — but there are plenty of vendors selling everything from fresh produce and flowers to nut butters, coffee and hummus.

The market will run from 3 to 7 p.m. each Wednesday through the end of September. For more information, visit camasfarmersmarket.org. To see the Post-Record’s photo gallery of the first day of the 2021 Camas Farmers Market, click here.
