ISO Local produce in downtown Portland
We will be visiting on a long weekend, arriving on Saturday night.
Since I will miss the Saturday Market, Is there a place to buy local produce in dowtown area? Also, is there a market in dowtown where I can buy ready-to-eat dinner? Thanks very much in advance.
On Sunday morning, the King Farmers' Market is open at NE 7th & Wygant, just off of MLK and Alberta. It's a bit of a distance from downtown, but it's accessible via the #6 MLK bus line and Yellow Line MAX to the #72 Killingsworth, about a 15-minute ride from Rose Quarter TC.
Also, a few minutes north of downtown via the Streetcar, you can hit Little Green Grocer at NW 11th & Northrup -
Or Food Front Coop, up at NW Thurman & 23rd, also just a quick walk off the streetcar -
The only places to get local produce downtown that I know of are the farmers' market on Wed. (which they call the Shemanski Market, as it is next to the Shemanski Fountain (aka Rachel at the Well) in the south Park Blocks), and at Whole Foods in the Pearl, just across Burnside from downtown proper.
Whole Foods has ready to eat stuff too, but if you want a late night dinner rec, Cassidy's is open until 2am (they have a large industry clientele that goes after their kitchens close) with a great happy hour 10pm-2am:
