Portland Area Farmers Markets
To the Market we Go
COVID-19 note: Face coverings or masks are now required at all indoor and outdoor markets in Oregon.
Fall Farmers Markets: October-November
During the fall, onions and apples take the stage at several area markets. The cooler autumn months usher in gourds and nuts, especially walnuts and hazelnuts (filberts). Throughout the months of October and November, the Beaverton Farmers Market has a weekly Saturday market.
Winter Farmers Markets: February-April
The Beaverton Farmers Market hosts Tualatin Valley’s only winter market February through April. Winter produce, plus cheeses, baked goods, meats and other products are available during this time.
Summer Farmers Markets: May-September
Summertime is market season, and Tualatin Valley’s farmers’ markets are teeming with fruits, vegetables, plants, and so much more, all collected from the farms and fields of the region. Goods range from herbs and flowers to cheese and baked delicacies. The farmers’ markets, just a short trip from nearby Portland, are also more than food; they offer entertainment such as live music, chef demonstrations and kids’ activities.
On almost any day of the week during summer months, there’s a farmers’ market somewhere here. Lush strawberries, gorgeous flowers and leafy vegetables are tops during the early weeks, while mid-summer introduces blueberries, apricots, peaches, cucumbers and tomatoes.
