It’s Farmers Market Time In and Around Lake Oswego

Lake Oswego’s fabulous Farmers Market returns Saturday, May 13 and runs through October 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Millennium Plaza Park.

Our market is one of Lake Oswego’s star attractions for many of the reasons I’ve touted in previous blogs from the scenery to the selection to the location right in downtown Lake Oswego, making it a perfect jumping-off point for exploring the rest of the city.

But, what happens if you are out of town on Saturday? Or if your kid has a soccer tournament in Hillsboro and you can’t make it?

Luckily, there are other markets in the Portland metro area offered on other days of the week so here’s a partial list of ones closest to Lake Oswego to the rescue!


TIGARD FARMERS MARKET.  This market isn’t as large as Lake Oswego’s but it’s got enough variety to make you feel like you got your market fix in for the week.  Runs May through October from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in its new location in Universal Plaza, 9100 Burnham Street.


COME THRU MARKET is an incubator market centering Black and Indigenous Farmers and Makers and is open on the first and third Mondays in May through October from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  At 831 SE Salmon Street, it’s only about eight miles from Lake Oswego if Monday is your day!


FARMERS MARKET AT OHSU is in its 16th season and features about 30 vendors every Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. June through September. Located in front of Mackenzie Hall, off SW Sam Jackson Park Rd.


WEDNESDAYS IN WILLAMETTE SUMMER MARKET. You’ll find the usual produce as well as artisan foods, handmade goods, cideries, wineries, distilleries and mixed cocktail vendors. Wednesdays from May 17 through September 13 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 1785 Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn.


SOUTH WATERFRONT FARMERS MARKET. This mid-size market is a perfect pick-me-up for after work with all the vendors you come to expect to fill your baskets. Opens Thursday, June 1 and runs through October from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 3508 S. Moody Avenue in Elizabeth Caruthers Park.


CORNELIUS FARMERS MARKET. This is probably the closest market to Lake Oswego on Fridays. Last season they averaged about 20 vendors and plan to run from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Friday beginning June 2 through September 29 at 1370 N. Adair Street, behind the Cornelius Public Library.

HONORABLE MENTION. No Portland area Farmers’ Market listing would be complete without mentioning the Beaverton Farmers’ Market that is also held on Saturdays. This market is one to be experienced at least once – we usually include it on our visitors’ itinerary because of its variety, size and quality. Open now through November from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 12365 SW 5th Street in Beaverton.

The same goes for the Portland Farmers Market with several locations on different days of the week.  Saturdays the flagship market greets close to 10,000 visitors and can be found at SW Park and Montgomery. Sundays find the King Market on NE 7th and Wygant. Shemanski Park at SW Park and Main hosts the Wednesday Market as does the Kenton Market at N. McClellan and N. Denver. The Lents International Market covers Sundays at SE 91st and Foster.
