Opening day of the Portland Farmers Market is a true Portland party, where the music is live, the coffee is fresh, the bagels are wood-fired, and the decorations take the shape of mounds of colorful chard, Easter egg radishes, and bright green leeks. Join Portland’s top chefs and other market enthusiasts on Saturday, March 15 from 8:30 am to 2 pm to kick off the market's 23rd year and check out the season’s first bounty: wildly-colored carrots, fragrant fennel, pleasantly bitter chicories, fresh crowns of broccoli, wild nettles, and hedgehog mushrooms nestled amongst year-round treats like baked goods, meats, cheeses, and seafood.
