Spring Farmers Markets

Oregon Farmers Market Season Is Here!

It certainly feels like Spring in Oregon: rain, a few days of 70+ degree weather, flowers and blossoms everywhere.

We’re fortunate to have a few winter & year-round Farmers Markets (PSU Portland Farmers Market, Hollywood, Lloyd) but early May typically marks the start of the season for many of Oregon’s markets.

Check out the below list to find the opening day of a market near you. Farmers Markets are a great way to get a sense of the season, enjoy some live music and stock your fridge! Expect to see strawberries, greens, rhubarb, asparagus, peas, spring onions, flowers, garden starts and herbs. And of course meats, artisan breads, eggs, mushrooms, cider, beer, spirits and prepared foods. See the photo gallery for shots from last weekend’s Salem Saturday Market, which started in early April.
