Inner Southeast Portland
SE 20th at Salmon between Belmont and Hawthorne

The Buckman Farmers Market features 20 vendors bringing locally-grown fruits and vegetables, berries, baked goods, meat, cheese, prepared foods and flowers right to the heart of Southeast Portland.

The market is open Thursdays, May through September from 3-7pm, and is located in the parking lot across from Hinson Baptist Church at SE 20th and Salmon. Walk, bike or drive—free on-site parking is available in the parking lot adjacent to the church.

Stop by to sway to the beat of live music from local performers, enjoy tasty food and beverage samples and fill your market baskets with fresh local food. We invite families to enjoy the Market Play Zone, which offers new interactive activities for kids of all ages each week. 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 Buckman Farmers Market to meet the faces behind your food, visit with your community and celebrate the bounty of our region. For more details, see www.portlandfarmersmarket.org.
