Market Watch: Gresham Farmers' Market

In this week's installment of Market Watch, your intrepid reporter braves the vagaries of I-84 and heads out to east Multnomah County to check out the Gresham Farmers' Market. It's located in the city's historic downtown district and, not to be snotty, but who knew Gresham had a cute little downtown area full of boutique-y shops? Seriously, it's sweet!

Celebrating its 22nd year in business, you'll find new family farmers like Debbie Abrahamson of NW Organic Farms in Sandy whose five kids are actively involved with the business, as well as old-timers like Debra and Richard Lowry of Farmers Outlet in Corbett. Plus lots of crafts and food booths to keep you going.

Details: Gresham Farmers' Market. Saturdays, 8:30 am-2 pm. Miller Street at Third in historic downtown Gresham.
