ROSEBURG, Ore. -- This Saturday is the last Umpqua Valley Farmer's Market of the year.
Officials say that the year has been pretty good.
Every weekend, the market has averaged 800 to 1,200 visitors, which is up from last year.
Officials say one of the biggest draws was allowing people to use EBT cards, which is a state assistance program.
Customers were able to buy tokens using EBT, then use those to buy local produce produce and other goods. Heather Barklaw is the market manager, and says that it brought more people into the venue. "That not only gets a larger population, more diversity at the market, for people to be able to do that, but that also helps our vendors be able to reach more people," she said.
This Saturday, the market will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
To celebrate, organizers are holding a Harvest Festival with live music, pumpkin bowling and more.
