VALE – Vendors can sign up now for the annual Vale Farmers & Crafters Saturday Market, which kicks off Saturday, June 19, at 860 Washington Street E. next to the Malheur River.

The market began in 2008 and became a local mainstay through the summer and into the fall, said organizer Kate Humphrey.

“We offer farmers and vendors an opportunity to sell products at no cost to them. They just need to fill out an application,” said Humphrey.

The event will be held every Saturday until Oct. 16, said Humphrey.

Humphrey said vendors offer everything from fruit and vegetables to gift knick-knacks.
