It's farmers market season, otherwise known as prime time to sling a canvas tote over your arm and load up on glorious fresh produce and artisan goods. Happily, many outdoor markets are awakening from hibernation, with several COVID-safe practices (such as limiting the number of customers, requiring masks, and offering pre-ordered pickup) firmly in place. We've compiled this list of farmers markets in the Portland area so that you can shop to your heart's content any day of the week. Happy browsing, and don't forget to observe your market's safety guidelines! For more ideas, check out our food and drink calendar.
