Mayor Charlie Hales Rings in PFM’s 22nd Season this Saturday
Nothing signals the start of spring like opening day at our Portland State University Market! Join us this Saturday, March 16, at 8:30am sharp at the music stage in the center of the market, where Mayor Charlie Hales will ring the opening bell and say a few words to marketgoers. When asked what the market means to him, Mayor Hales said, “Portland Farmers Market has helped put Portland on the map as a destination for great food,” adding, “There’s nothing like wandering through the market, picking out the freshest local produce, and talking directly to the people who grew it to make you feel connected to your community.”
Let’s usher in our 22nd market season together on Saturday from 8:30am to 2:00pm, under a canopy of budding trees in the South Park Blocks, where the freshest seasonal foods will be ripe for the picking from more than 100 farmers, food producers and artisans. Click here for an interactive map of vendors who will be at the market on opening day.
