COVID-19 Essential Information for the Portland Farmers' Market 

The Portland Farmers' Market summer season will begin April 25, 2020. 

To continue to provide essential services, the market has collaborated with the City of Portland to approve necessary changes to our market in order to address public health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time our market will feel very different than usual. We know that farmers and customers normally spend time at market to connect with each other, but during this emergency we cannot chat or visit with each other the way we wish we could, and the pace of market will not feel leisurely. We look forward to those days returning, and we know our community will adapt to the changes with patience and grace as we navigate these times together.

THANK YOU for working with us to keep the market open and safe!

Among the changes:

  • Customers are asked to PRE-ORDER from farmers as much as possible.

  • Market is now a grab-and-go experience where customers efficiently shop and then promptly return home.

  • Both Wednesday and Saturday Market will happen in Deering Oaks Park from 7am-1pm during this time.

  • 7am-8am is reserved shopping time for customers who are 60 yrs old or older, and/or immunocompromised.

  • The market layout and foot traffic pattern have been redesigned, and parking within the park is more limited.

  • Customers are asked to follow ALL our new Community Shopping Guidelines.

  • A SNAP-Only Information Booth will be available. Many farmers accept credit/debit directly a their booths.
