Getting out on Saturday to visit the Portland Farmer’s Market at PSU (one of many locations) has always been a favorite of mine. For starters, the Portland State University Park blocks are stunning and add a charm to the Downtown City of Portland. Combining this already beautiful landscape with the Portland Farmer’s Market is simply wonderful. The market, which offers local produce and food products, provides for a fine activity that can continue to boost your soul/body throughout the week-due to all the delicious and organic eats!
Beyond being a tremendously enjoyable activity, attending and purchasing local products boosts the economy and provides support for your fellow community members. Enjoy local produce, eat healthy, support the local economy, encourage awareness, become part of your community, think sustainability, and live a conscience life.
Some words of wisdom provided by Portland Farmers Market: “From farm-fresh produce, baked goods, meats, cheeses, seafood and other artisan goods, our markets are bursting with local offerings from more than 200 vendors at the height of the season. Whether you are wondering who carries spring asparagus, fresh salmon, heirloom tomatoes or homemade berry jam, use the product search function to find which vendors have what you are looking for”.
The Saturday Market is located at Portland State University in the South Park Blocks (between SW Hall & SW Montgomery), held March 20 through December 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (March thru October) and 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (November & December).
