Master Planned Community of the Year
Wilsonville, OR (Vocus) February 20, 2009
A new nonprofit, the Villebois Sunday Market, will hold its first volunteer and organizational meeting Thurs., March 19 from 5:45 to 7 p.m. Hosted at the Miraval Building in the Villebois Village Center located at 28929 S. W. Ravenna Loop in Wilsonville, Ore., the meeting will allow potential vendors and community members the opportunity to meet and learn more about plans for the Villebois Sunday Market slated to open May 2.
After nearly 18 months of planning, the Villebois Sunday Market was formed as a community nonprofit on February 11. The Sunday Market, which will operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., offers a variety of local entertainment, fresh seasonal produce, baked goods and other Oregon farm-produced goods - from cheese to honey to wine. Additionally, local artisans, florists and nursery vendors will have booths at the weekly event. The market will be held in the Village Center at the heart of the distinctive Villebois community.
Locally owned Costa Pacific Communities, noted for its transit-friendly, award-winning communities, is underwriting the costs to found the Villebois Sunday Market. The company received national attention for the planning and development of Orenco Station in Hillsboro, a 190-acre mixed-use community located along the Westside MAX light rail line. In 1999, Orenco Station was named "Master Planned Community of the Year" by the National Association of Home Builders. The Orenco Station Farmers Market started that same year. The Orenco Station Sunday Market now has more than 75 vendors and operates year-round.
