It's time to shake out your string bags and dust off the baskets, because the market season is getting started in earnest this month. It'll be a big weekend in Northeast Portland with the Hollywood Farmers' Market kicking off its 13th season this Saturday, and then on Sunday it's the debut of the King Farmers' Market, the brand-new baby in the Portland Farmers' Market clan that's kicking off with 45 vendors its first day. Also on Sunday the Hillsdale Farmers' Market reappears in its weekly incarnation and is, in my humble opinion, the best market in the city.
- Hollywood Farmers' Market, Saturdays, 8 am-1 pm; NE Hancock between 44th and 45th.
- King Farmers' Market, Sundays, 10 am-2 pm; NE 7th and Wygant between NE Alberta and Prescott St.
- Hillsdale Farmers' Market, 10 am-2 pm; At the intersection of SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Hwy.
