Farmers Market, Portland, Oregon

On Saturday year-round, local farmers, bakers, chefs, and entertainers converge at the South Park Blocks near the PSU campus for Oregon's largest open-air farmers' market—it's one of the most impressive in the country. It's a great place to sample the regional bounty and to witness the local-food obsession that's revolutionized Portland's culinary scene. There's plenty of food you can eat on the spot, plus nonperishable local items (wine, hazelnuts, chocolates, vinegars) you can take home with you. There's a smaller Wednesday market, May through November, on a different section of the Park Blocks (between S.W. Salmon and S.W. Main). On Mondays, June through September, the market is held at Pioneer Courthouse Square, and at other times the Portland Farmers' Market is held in different locations around town, including Nob Hill/Northwest, Kenton/North Portland, King/Alberta, and Lents/Southeast, and some 40 other farmers' markets take place throughout metro Portland—see the website...
