The King Farmers Market features 30 vendors bringing locally-grown fruits and vegetables, berries, baked goods, seafood, meat, eggs, cheese, prepared foods and flowers right to the heart of Northeast Portland.
The market is open Sundays, May through November from 10am-2pm, and is located in the parking lot adjacent to King Elementary School and King School Park at NE 7th and Wygant. The market a family-centric destination for the neighborhood to enjoy breakfast or lunch, listen to live music by local musicians and fill up market baskets with fresh local food.
Each week, we invite families to enjoy the Market Play Zone, which offers new interactive activities for kids of all ages. Inspired by seasonal food, healthy eating and exercise, activities include seed planting, food-themed art projects, drop-in cooking activities and recess-style games to get kids moving.
If you or someone you know has an Oregon Trail card, come to the market information booth to find out how you can double your food dollars at the market—up to $5 each week! The market’s Fresh Exchange program helps to get more farm-direct produce into the hands of our low-income neighbors while supporting our region’s small farms and food producers.
Come to the King Farmers Market to meet the faces behind your food, visit with your community and celebrate the bounty of our region. For more details, visit www.portlandfarmersmarket.org.
