Here are a couple of our favorite Vendors we visit every Saturday.

Maria’s Tamales
The best authentic Tamales you will find anywhere. Like so many others, we are there every Saturday morning for a Tamale. Pork, Chicken, Beef, and Spinach, add a little red and green salsa …..”What a great way to start out the day”. It pays to get there early. The line forms early and stays that way most of the morning. Customers will get 1 or 2 to eat right there at the market or buy them by the bag full to take back home for later. If you can’t make it to Grants Pass on Saturday morning, you will find Maria’s Tamales on Tuesday at the Ashland Growers Market or on Thursday at the Medford Growers Market. Truly a wonderful treat.

White Hare Ranch Fresh Brown Eggs
We haven’t seen Earl at the market since last year, but I wanted to add him here in our list of favorites. He has great eggs. Always fresh and some of the largest chicken eggs I have ever seen. When we would comment about it he would just beam. His eggs were so popular that often by 10:00 AM he would be sold out. When shopping should you find eggs on the shelf from the White Hare Ranch you may be assured they are of excellent quality.
