Salem Public Market

Now that the Wednesday Market and Saturday Market are closed until Spring, we thought it was a good time to go see what's happening at Salem Public Market. Since we tend to sleep in on Saturdays, I'm glad to see the extended holiday hours (8:30 - 3 PM). :>)

Here's what I hope will be the first of many videos. I hope you enjoy it.
I still have a long way to go as far as learning the basics, but thanks to the help of someone with experience I was able to get started AND finish. :>)
My goal with this video is to get more people in the door at the Salem Public Market, 1240 Rural Ave, Salem OR . I think it's one of the hidden gems of our city. They're proud of being open year round, every Saturday 8:30 AM to 1 PM and that they provide LOCAL goods - not resale from another area.

KandN, I think you are doing a superb job of this. I want to go shopping at this market. Everything seems so well arrange and the video is very well done.

Nice job K,
So many things to see. I had no idea that was there. I look forward to more videos.

Thanks, Salem Man!
One of the fun things that happened during the extra time spent at the market was running into a past kindergartner who works there.

How sad is that. I've lived in Salem for 9 years and I never knew that was there. I'm going to have to check it out this Saturday!

I hope you do. It has a friendly, small town feeling with a lot of variety to offer.
Someone at work remarked how they also didn't know it existed, but found out after showing the video to her husband that he had often taken their kids (when they were younger) while she stayed home and did chores on Saturday mornings.

CSC here. Good work on the video. For better quality (so us viewers can see detail and color better) upload it to

They have a how-to section to upload correctly. Check it out ;)

Hey CSC!
I think part of the clarity issue was due to the multi programs I used to complete the video. It was truly a learning experience. I did do the Vimeo thing, though. Do you think it helped?

I drove over to the market this morning. Luckily, someone was just pulling out of the full parking lot. I bought a half gallon of ice cold apple cider, a loaf of ciabatta bread, rosemary sourdough, pinot noir sourdough and a wedge of Willamette's aged gouda. Now to make the soup . . . I may have to head back once I figure out which recipe I want to make.
