Located in downtown Eugene at the 5th Street Public Market, it is providing locals and visitors with a 10,000 square foot gathering spot and emporium of  local, fresh, seasonal and artisanal. This expanded version of Marché Provisions was, dare we say, the grandest, offering of Chef Stephanie Kimmel’s Marché Restaurant Group.

The market is a food-and-wine lover’s paradise. This is a one-of-a-kind casual restaurant and modern day food hall in one.  The artisan bakery, specialty food emporium, wine shop and retail store are all under one roof. Foodies will discover everything from French-inspired pastries, breads and house charcuterie to artisan cheeses and foodstuffs.  Stocked shelves celebrate the Willamette Valley’s seasonal and sustainable bounty. Order a hearth-baked pizza or deli sandwich on handmade bread, and then shop for gifts or unique specialty ingredients.

If you’re cooking at home or need the perfect elements of a game-day picnic or winery tour lunch, stop in at Provisions to fill your market bag. Read our feature story.

When you stop in at the Blackboard Wine Bar, you’ll find a diverse menu of prepared dishes, pizzas and salads featuring produce from local farmers. Be sure to save time before or after lunch for strolling the aisles of local artisan products, kitchen tools, wines, regional cheeses, Newman’s Fish seafood, and meats from Long’s Meat Market.

Among the stacks we discovered many Oregon-based artisan food companies, including Jacobsen Salts, Singing Dog Vanilla, Bliss Nut-Butters (Gluten-free and 100% GMO-free) and more!
