Portland Farmers Winter Market

Shemanski Park (SW Park & Salmon)

Portland Farmers Market welcomes shoppers to the Winter Market at Shemanski Park with the promise of piles of purple and green kale; pyramids of carrots, parsnips and beets; and baskets of apples, pears, potatoes and onions. The Winter Market will run from 10 am to 2 pm eight consecutive Saturdays from January 5, to February 23, 2013.

As the demand for locally-grown produce continues to rise, the region’s innovative farmers are meeting that need with a variety of season-extending techniques such as planting winter-hardy varietals and using row covers, cold frames, hoop houses and greenhouses to protect crops from the elements. With the addition of Portland Farmers Market’s new Winter Market, Portlanders now have access to locally grown farm-fresh food all year long.

Portland Farmers Market staff will provide a few large tents to protect shoppers from inclement weather. There will also be a covered seating area for shoppers to gather and visit, or enjoy freshly-brewed coffee, hot food and soups. During market hours, SW Main Street will be closed between SW Broadway and SW Park Avenue, providing easy access to the market and the restrooms at the Performing Arts Center, which will be open for shoppers.
