“A great place to see the locals, hear music, take photos”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were close to the Park Blocks visiting the Portland Art Museum and were drawn into the market and its music. The produce and flowers are beautiful and there are a few ethnic food vendors where you can buy a lunch and sit on a bench to enjoy it all. We were lucky to be there on a beautiful summer day, but the people watching is probably great any time the market is there.

“If you're in Portland, April 'til November, you must stroll the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning.”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Farmer's Market is set up in the Park Blocks, right downtown. Portland is a very food-conscious city and many of the well known local chefs hit the market in the early morning when they open to score excellent produce and artisanal cheeses, mushrooms, flowers and meats. There's always entertainment, good food to be had, and lots of interesting stalls to visit.

“Amazing, tasty market”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I love farmers' markets and was not disappointed by this one. So many choices of farms with fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, meats, etc. The prepared food was amazing. Pine State Biscuit has a place here and the wait is well worth it. The prices were reasonable and everyone will let you sample before you buy, eliminating one from taking home an awful piece of fruit. Our bags were loaded down when we left. We just wished we lived here to come every weekend!

“Beautiful Berries”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were lucky enough to experience 2 markets while in town. The first was in Pioneer Plaza. The berries were beautiful and only $3 for a pint. You could also get 3 pints for $8. We bought some and ate them as we walked around. The other market was at Shamansky Park (not sure on the spelling). It was a beautifully wooded park with even more fruits and veggies than Pioneer. They also had live music and some craft tents.
