The Wednesday Farmers Market at the Grange opened its doors on Wednesday, March 27, reminding Brookings residents that spring has arrived.

The farmers market will now be running year-round from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Chetco Grange Community Center, 97895 Shopping Center Ave. When weather is nice, vendors will be outside and when rain persists, vendors will be moved indoors. The vendors may change weekly, but one thing stays the same — shopping at the market means supporting local businesses.  


‘A Funny Thing …’

Brookings’ own community theater legend Mike Moran has been acting, singing, directing and handling theater “tech” for more than 50-years. 

This month, he celebrates his 61st birthday and the upcoming comedy musical “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum,” is the 40th theater play he has directed.


Sand Hill: A test of endurance

If you’re like me you grew up right here in Brookings, surrounded by the abundant natural beauty. And if you’re like me, you take it for granted.

I grew up on Cape Ferrelo Road, north of Brookings, so spent lots of time playing outdoors as a kid. As a teenager I made gas money by picking and selling Chanterelle and Hedgehog mushrooms locally. Summers were spent “up river” swimming in the Chetco. I ran the coastal trails north of Lone Ranch Beach for conditioning every year for soccer. What I’m saying is I’m a local, born and bred in the boonies of Brookings.
