About Eat Oregon Now


Eat Oregon Now produces seasonal marketplaces that feature Oregon’s unique farm + food + beverage products in festive settings that celebrate Oregon's bounty and the journey our state’s agricultural products make from seed to shelf!

Each Eat Oregon Now event is more than a marketplace; they're experiences that bring together producers from across Oregon – the meet-the-maker events build rural–urban bridges. 

Eat Oregon Now also reflects positively on the state’s commitment to diversity and the entrepreneurial spirit, and supports this important Oregon jobs-creator economic sector. 

The program is managed by Susan Laarman. Susan is a longtime public relations and special event freelancer who recently produced the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s Angel Food program and conference. Susan has produced two Eat Oregon Now holiday marketplaces to date, with several new events already underway for 2020. Each event has an advisory committee of leaders in the food + beverage sector.
