The Douglas Farmers Market is a wonderful weekly farmers market held on the grounds of the historic E.N. Jenckes Store in downtown Douglas. The perfect stop on a summer Saturday morning to cross paths with others from the community and get your local produce and other artisan goods. For a little town, this market is beyond amazing.
We are still welcoming new vendors of any kind so if you grow it, make it, or bake it, we would love to have you. The market will be open every Saturday morning from 9-12 through October. We will be featuring other special events throughout the summer including our Dog Day event and Recycling Day. The Market will also be home to our famous Lemonade stand that we loan out to local non-profit organizations to raise money for their causes. Please contact us if your non-profit is interested.
The Market will open this year with our Annual Rhubarb Challenge. This event is one of a kind that will go down in local history. Over the years locals have put forth their finest Rhubarb creations. We have seen entries from beautiful pies and crumbles to chutney, sauerkraut, beer, and bread. All of it for the love of Rhubarb. Whether you grew up eating it or have never heard of it, we welcome you to take on the challenge.
Entries are judged by community judge panel and this year will add a people’s choice award to the event. The Rhubarb Challenge invites those who want to share their culinary talents and love for rhubarb by entering their most scrumptious rhubarb masterpieces. Prizes will be awarded in three categories; sweets, savory, and condiments. Any dish that includes rhubarb in the recipe is welcome. Come join us with your favorite rhubarb creation. Join the challenge or just come to taste the unique creations and check out our wonderful market vendors. Tasting plates and good old rhubarb fun is available to all.
Come see who will be our next Rhubarb Champion!
