Portland Farmers Market set to expand for 2010 season - February 1, 2010


The Portland Metro area is home to more than 30 farmers markets, and at least two more at planned to debut this Spring, writes Karen Brooks in the February 1 Oregonian.


Portland Farmers Market, (PFM), nearly 20 years old, enjoys a collaborative, successful relationship with the Parks Bureau, and operates a collection of farmers markets in Portland which together serve some 20,000 shoppers per week.


This year, those shoppers will have more to choose from, as PFM opens a Monday market in Pioneer Courthouse Square and a new market at NW 23rd and Savier. The South Park Blocks market will also expand, nearly doubling in size when the season opens in late March.
