Hello everyone.

I live in Hillsboro, OR and rely on the Orenco Station Farmers market currently for my produce (best quality, best price, and closest).

Well they will be finishing by the end of this month and I am looking for some alternatives for the winter months.

I believe I saw a couple in downtown area that go till December, can anyone point me in the direction of a good one that is close to the Max?

Also, whats a good local place to get produce after that?

Thanks in advance.

    Portland Farmers' Mkt at PSU Saturday morning goes until 12/19. Take the MAX to library stop, then the streetcar on 11th to South Waterfront. Get off at the park blocks. Best FM in the metro area. http://www.portlandfarmersmarket.org/

    The only year-round markets are: People's Coop on Wednesday. Hillsdale FM is every other Sunday in winter. http://www.hillsdalefarmersmarket.com/
    Neither is convenient to MAX.

      Thanks Leonardo. I was checking out the PSU market online. Thank you also for the directions you just saved me a bunch of time.

      The Hillsdale Farmers' Market runs year round through November 22nd, with a different (2x/month) schedule Dec-Apr:

      December 6, 20
      January 10, 24
      February 7, 21
      March 7, 21
      April 11, 25

      It's a great little market, though it is not near a MAX.
