About This Market

Our year-round flagship farmers market, under the canopy of giant elm trees on the campus of Portland State University (PSU), welcomes up to 9,000 shoppers on a summer Saturday. Portland-area residents and chefs, along with visitors from around the world, flock to the market to browse as many as 100 vendor stalls featuring local farmers and food producers.
