To Markets, To Markets

Get fresh with a farmer this weekend.

mapThe Hollywood Farmers Market embarks on 15 years with their official opening this weekend (after testing their smaller, year-round concept last week). Interstate's new Lombard addition, a Saturday Farmers Market at De La Salle H.S., won’t be open until May 21, but you can feast at their Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser this Saturday and then hit the coming out party for Market Q on Mississippi.

Speaking of this Saturday, Parkrose holds their first market of the year while Portland Farmers Market at PSU will be a few weeks into their 20th season. And speaking of anniversaries, Hillsdale Farmers Market had record breaking crowds as they kicked off their tenth season at last Sunday’s market. Westsiders will be back this weekend while Eastsiders can shop the Sunday King Portland Farmers Market

New markets, extended hours and more openings in June. Check them all out and get fresh with your local farmer.
