Since I live in Canby, I have been going to the Market in all of its locations. This location is the best. But it doesn't bring in vendors that attract a crowd. Even at the height of summer, there is a limited number of food vendors as well as what they offer in fresh produce. It is not worth a trip for us. The other vendors sell home made items, but I have seen them all every year and am just not interested in that type of merchandise. The market has lost vendors over the years and as sad as it is, I would suggest that it just close.

We have gone to the Canby Saturday Market for years and followed it to it's third location. I like the location, but it seems to have trouble attracting and keeping vendors. It's not the management but just a fact. Since we live in Canby we will continue to check out, but I wouldn't recommend folks take a big detour to see.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your continued attendance! We are new management to the market this year, and really appreciate all of the support we have received from the community. Although you are right - Canby has a tough time attracting vendors (apparently the market has had some challenges in the past years) - I think the title of the review may have been a tad misleading. With 20-25 vendors a week, we have more vendors than the market has ever had, and are continually growing! We have noticed that with the attendance level at the market, that may be the max size that Canby is able to support for now. However, if you are hoping for a bigger market, encouraging people not to visit the us probably won't be a great way to support the market in getting more vendors to check us out! :-)

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you at the market!

Great way to spend a Saturday, and a nice detour off the freeway if you are coming or going to Portland area. Nice booths and great food options.

What a great day. The kids and I decided to swing by and we were glad we did. We signed up for their kids club, searched for the hidden veggies, and ate lunch while listening to an amazing band. We had a blast and will definitely be back.
