Market Vegetable Gardens: Planning for Success (PDF)
Market gardens are generally small plots of land (1/4 acre to 2 acres) that produce diverse vegetables, fruit, and/or flower crops to sell directly to consumers.  Sales can occur via community-supported agriculture shares, directly from the farm, at local farmers’ markets, and to local restaurants, stores and co-ops.  This publication presents guidelines for successful production and marketing of a market garden in Washington or Oregon west of the Cascades emphasizing annual vegetables.
