The market will now be located on North Holly Street near Gwynn's Coffeehouse and Wait Park

Beginning this weekend, Saturday, Aug. 3, the market will move from its downtown Northwest First Avenue location to North Holly Street between Second and Third Avenues—next to Gwynn's Coffeehouse.

Alexis Purcell, who took over as market manager this year and who also manages the successful Wilsonville Farmers Market, is optimistic about the change.

"We're just looking for a bigger turnout," Purcell said. "We're going to move up to Holly Street and be near the park, so hopefully we can focus on moms and kids going to the park and your morning coffee at Gwynn's and some better traffic."

The move happens just in time for the popular Junk Refunk event this weekend at Wait Park. In honor of the event, the market will have extended hours this weekend only, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. After that, it will return to the usual 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. hours, though Purcell said she is considering a 2 p.m. end-time.

A potential boost in numbers resulting from Junk Refunk is a welcome possibility for Purcell, who said thus far, the market has been "slow-going."

"I feel like some of Canby knows it's there and other people are like, 'Oh, we have a farmers market?'" Purcell said. "So, hopefully people start to spread the word. It seems like this town really wants a good farmers market, but in order for it to grow, we need you to come."

She added, "We hope you come out and give us a shot."
