About this Market

Kenton Farmers Market is located in the heart of a historic neighborhood in North Portland. The market was established in 2012, and it offers live music and a lively street-fair ambiance that thrives amid a growing business district. The market’s location near a MAX station and its accessibility to cyclists and pedestrians make it a bustling and convenient mid-week destination for fresh produce and local food.

    • The checks are valid from June 1 through November 30, and no change can be given.
