The Portland Farmers Market returns to the Portland State University campus this Saturday, March 17, 2012.
Nothing screams spring quite like the opening of the PSU Market! Come join us as we welcome back your favorite vendors and introduce some new faces. Fill up your market basket while you stroll and sample your way through two full blocks of locally grown and crafted food.
The starting bell rings at 8:30am, and the market continues until 2pm. Over 100 farmers, food producers, and artisans will be there on opening day, with that number expanding to 160 through spring and summer. Four new vendors come on board this year: Pono Farm & Fine Meats from Bend, Temptress Truffles, Greenwillow Grains, and Champoeg Farm.
Visit the Portland Farmers Market blog for more PSU market details. Portland Monthly‘s Eat Beat has the opening day details for the rest of the area’s farmers markets, with opening days from April through June.
