This market has only been running a few years, but it keeps getting better and better! I try to visit it as many times as I can while it's open, Saturdays 9AM-2PM, May through October. The market has a emphasis on local produce with other booths such as fresh goat cheese, breads, handmade soap, plants, and more. I'm happy this market is in my home town, and it makes me happy to shop local!

When we first moved to Oregon City from California, we were delighted to support the first few years of this farmers' market on a weekly basis.
The market began as a modest seasonal Saturday affair in a city parking lot, with a handful of local farmers offering quality produce at very reasonable prices. Fortunately or unfortunately, it has grown into a much larger-scale (and upscale) affair.
Sadly, the farmers now have to pay a fairly high price each week for their booth, and they have to pass that cost on to the marketgoers. As a result, the small farmers offering only one or two seasonal items at a time are gone, and they have been replaced by much larger-scale farms offering a variety of produce (much of which they do not grow themselves, as evidenced by the stamps of origin on the boxes), and the booths are now mostly staffed with bored, minimum-wage, minimum-knowledge help rather than the farmers themselves.
The farmers are also now outnumbered by the vendors selling "stuff." Even more troubling is the increasing number of booths featuring aggressive community activists accosting market-goers to sign petitions and the like (note to market organizers: GET RID OF THESE GUYS if you want to keep the family atmosphere - please keep the FARMER in "farmer's market"!).
I used to buy ALL my in-season produce and a lot of nursery plants at the market, but now go only for the "specialty" items I can't find at local markets and farm stands, such as fresh mushrooms and whole, fresh-caught tuna, and the incomparable (but very dearly priced) local peaches. Only one of my favorite family farms still has a booth at the market (but who knows for how much longer). If you go, please support the Hansens - they are nice people and have wonderful produce and responsibly raised meats.
I shake my head sadly every time I see the proud market announcements that vendors accept the Oregon Trail card (i.e., welfare) - I can't imagine that most welfare recipients could afford to shop at the market except as a rare treat. I know I can't - and our family is upper-middle-class.
Overall, the market organizers seem more interested in the market as a "high concept" than an actual community service benefiting farmers and locals. The result is attractive and entertaining, but it's taking the "farmer" out of "farmer's market."

Been there a couple of times... looks like it is growing which is good. A good variety of items. The best one around is the Beaverton farmers market... mist local one pale in comparison.

There was plenty of produce available, that looked fine and most of it tasted great, and at good prices. I hadn't been to this market for a couple of years and was surprised that the food offerings were so limited. We went there for some shopping and lunch but found nothing we wanted. (Yes, that could just be us, but there wasn't a lot offered.)
There was some nice music with seating. And a friendly goat for the grandson to pet. Parking was just fine too. I do hope that they can get some more carts or tents in there to serve a wider variety of good food.

Love this market. We've watched it grow since it's start and it always provides quality and value. We patronise the nutbutter vender, local meat vender assorted organic produce stands, gluten free pastries booth, Oregon seafood for just a few.

This is a nice way to spend time on a Saturday morning. There are fruit and veggies from the area around Oregon City, there is meat, eggs, and seafood from the Oregon Coast, there are flowers and there is food and drink for on-site consumption. Frankly, there are a lot more things as well as I sit here writing about it all. Plenty of parking as well. And these are local people so you don't mind spending a few bucks with any of these people.

I didn't find anything here that I couldn't live without. It was however nice that they had a program for the kids. They get $2 to spend on produce. It is nice to have a market and they are open a lot!

The Kaen Road site is the parking lot for Clackamas County offices. When the Market is open the lot is devoted to the market and parking. That being the case, the access is easy, flat with plenty of parking. With a number of vendors the variety is impressive, the produce is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Also available are plants, fish, beef, cheese, wine and some prepared foods.
