The campus of Portland State University on the South Park Blocks provides a picturesque backdrop for Portland Farmers Market’s year-round flagship market. Farmers and artisan food producers fill 140 stall spaces with the bounty of our region. Throughout the year, more than 200 different vendors come and go, selling their wares at this market.
