Portland’s largest farmers market will be opening for the season tomorrow! I love this downtown market, near Portland State University along the park blocks. It is open from 8:30am to 2:00 in the afternoon.
The farmers market near me, the Lents International farmers market, won’t be open until June. It is much smaller and less exciting than the downtown one on Saturdays, but this year I need to make an even better effort to support it. It will only grow if we as neighbors get over there.
I can always get my bigger market ya-ya’s out on Wednesdays at the other downtown market along the Park Blocks. That one will be opening April 30th. It’s always so fun to escape the office for an hour and be in a totally different element.
After all this talk, I actually will miss the market tomorrow! I am attending a free workshop on building rain gardens – more on that this weekend!
