Portland Farmers Market, Portland
Between S.W. Harrison and Montgomery
Portland , Oregon
Concierge.com's insider take:
In a city where the philosophy "buy local" is nothing short of a religion, the local farmers' market is a bit like Mecca. Starting in spring, crowds descend on the market for some of the country's finest berries, golden peaches, frilled lettuces, piles of chanterelles, and colorful sprays of peonies, sunflowers, and whatever else is in bloom. But it's not just about produce. You'll find artisanal cheeses, wild salmon, pastries, and other fare to round out your meal as well. This is also a thriving social hub, with food stalls serving lattes and prepared dishes, live music, cooking demonstrations, and so on. If you want to check out Portland's food scene in its full, bountiful glory, this is not to be missed. Smaller neighborhood farmers' markets set up around town during the summer months.
Open Saturdays 8:30 am to 2 pm, April to October; open Saturdays 9:30 am to 2 pm November and December.
