Lloyd Farmers' Market and found herself dazed by the warm, homemade breads, wild mushrooms and fresh asparagus she found there. Needless to say, she stumbled out an hour later loaded down with goodies to take home, a common situation for almost every market shopper I know. Maybe we should start a Portland chapter of MSA…Market Shoppers Anonymous? View a slideshow of this hidden gem of a market.
Details: Lloyd Farmers' Market. Tues., 10 am-2 pm. In Oregon Square Courtyard on NE Holladay Street between NE 7th Ave. and NE 9th Ave.

For some reason the fact that we have a terrific roster of winter markets here in Portland simply doesn't register with some people, though they may be dedicated, even rabid, market shoppers during the rest of the year. That list includes the Hillsdale Farmers' Market, People's Farmers' Market and the Lloyd Farmers' Market, soon to be joined by a year-round market in Oregon City. So it was great to see one of my favorite markets celebrated in a story at Zester Daily on the Hillsdale market and one of its founders, Ted J. Coonfield. Way to go, Hillsdale!
Details: Hillsdale Farmers' Market. Sun., 10 am-2 pm. At the intersection of SW Capitol Hwy and Sunset Blvd. in the parking lot of Wilson High School behind the Hillsdale Shopping Center.
