Celebrate National Farmers Market Week with a Lake Oswego Trivia Quiz

Lake Oswego’s Farmers Market is one of the many summer traditions residents have come to love. But we’re not alone in our commitment to shopping local. According to the Farmers Market Coalition, there are 8,764 farmers markets in the United States which is why August 4-10 has been proclaimed National Farmers Market Week.

As part of the celebration, you can pick up an “I Love Farmers Markets” temporary tattoo (get there early—there are only 200 of them) at Saturday’s market and then enter the national Instagram photo contest. Just take a picture of yourself, a vendor, puppy, tomato—anyone or anything!—wearing the tattoo. Post the photo to Instagram with the hashtag #LoveMyMarket. Prizes will be awarded to winning photographers AND markets featured.

Check out the infographic below to see just how beneficial farmers markets are to the local economy, our community’s health and the preservation of rural farmland.

And..if you’re reading this we know you like to attend farmers markets. Take the test below to see how much you know about them and about Lake Oswego’s Farmers Market in particular. Once you’ve completed it, just hit the return button to see your results.
