Portland Farmer's Market question

We're planning to visit the market early on Saturday before drving home to Anacortes WA. Just wondered if the food vendors are open when the market opens so we can have a little breakfast. Thanks.

      Thanks. As it turns out we're leaving on Friday this trip, but will be back next month and plan to take in the market before we leave. If you have any food vendor recommendations, we'd
      appreciate hearing about them.

        Cookies at 2 Tarts.
        Pine State Biscuits.
        Cobbler, pizza, and bagels at Taste Bud Farm.
        Ice Cream Sandwich at Ruby Jewel.

          ...and Ken's Artisan Bakery.

          Ruby Jewel is a tiny cart near Gathering Together Farms.

            Thanks! We're looking forward to trying several of these places.

              Hey, Susan -

              You might know this, but I wanted to point out there are farmer's markets during the weekdays, too. One is on Wed in downtown, and there are two on Thurs - one in the Pearl & one in SE.

              They are a bit smaller than the Saturday, but just as great. Cherries, raspberries, green beans & blueberries are hitting their stride.

              Locations/times here:

    2. If you are on the road on Friday, be sure to go the Olympia farmers mkt. Great fruit in general and hangtown frys at one of the food stands
