This year, the Market is inviting locals to take part in a poster contest that includes a cash prize and an entry into the Farmers Market Coalition Farmers Market Poster contest. People interested in submitting should create a design that will, according to the Market press release, "exemplify Bend; the community, nature, agriculture, and anything that makes Bend special." Contestants have until June 30 to submit a design. Check out the Bend Farmers Market Facebook page to get the details on the contest. The winner will get $200 cash and a basket filled with Farmers Market goodies.
