Marché Stands Out With Five Farm to Table Eateries

French and Italian inspired fare from pizza to Burgundian pre-fixe dinners draw visitors and locals.


It’s not hard to find at least one delicious restaurant wherever you are. But it is harder to find five eateries in the same town run by the same people, that offer different flavors–but French-inspired.

In Eugene, diners can find French flavors at Marché and Le Bar, and artisan pastries, pizza and specialty foods at Provisions Market Hall. Within Provisions customers can enjoy Blackboard, a wine bar and bistro featuring a rotating selection of more than 20 wines by the glass, plus beer and cider on tap. Marché Museum Café, an outpost on the campus of the University of Oregon campus, is a beautiful, shady oasis within the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art where you can study with a latte or grab a picnic panini. All of these concepts are part of the Marché Restaurant Group.

The restaurant group that started with the pioneering farm-to-table restaurant, Marché, reached their 20-year anniversary this month. Marché’s secret is their focus on classic, ingredient-driven recipes and hospitality that never goes out of style.

“We apply the same great care to food and community that we have for two decades at at our original restaurant to everything else that we do,” says Jessica Blaine, Operations and Creative Director. “We’re constantly trying to expand what we offer, showcase new flavors and focus on from-scratch cooking with the same attention to quality and good ingredients that you would get at the restaurant.”

Le Bar is their expression of a Parisian bar, serving their iconic French food and classic, handcrafted cocktails in a slightly more casual environment. Enjoy one of Marché’s renowned burgers and a beer, or meet a friend for a drink at the daily happy hour. Open late, Le Bar is a cozy, casual hideaway.

Provisions Market Hall is your one-stop shop for wine, beer, cheeses, meats, produce, specialty food and more. Staff will happily prepare a picnic basket for you, or you can select from the shop’s well-stocked shelves. Within Provisions, the Blackboard wine bar is at the crossroads, right next to the specialty food section, a beautifully curated gift and housewares section, and the meat and seafood counters. Enjoy your wine (no corkage fee) with food from any of the eateries, or select oysters and salumi from the butcher shop. 

“There’s a lot going on here,” says Blaine. “This is a great place to have a snack and a little social time after work and pick up ingredients for dinner or take home a meal.”

Fifth Street Public Market, where all but the Museum Café are concentrated, is one of Eugene’s most vibrant neighborhoods, and it’s expanding all the time. With a fine boutique hotel onsite, another one nearby and another hotel and shopping complex planned for the coming year, many travelers to Eugene and residents end up here. Whether you’re here for a day, a week or a lifetime, there are so many flavors to explore – you’ll never run out of things to try.
