• Celebrating market success through the pandemic
    Celebrating market success through the pandemic
    In a year marked by canceled events, separation, and loss, it can be difficult to focus on the positives. But one place that positive energy was palpable this summer was in Fir Street Park each Sunday. The success of Sisters Farmers Market can be attributed to a few factors — perhaps the most prominent being the community support.

    Artist studio tour goes forward September 26-27
    Despite the pandemic, and after the smoke, the Sisters Arts Association’s (SAA) fourth annual Artist Studio Tour will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 26-27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in and around Sisters. This is a free, self-guided tour to individual studios. Thirty-six artists will demonstrate and show their art in 26 locations in and around Sisters Country. Because many artists will share studio locations, it will be easier for visitors to see more of them.
