Mapping the Markets


View Portland Farmers' Markets in a larger map

OK, say it's Thursday and I want freshly dug organic turnips (or asparagus or arugula). What are my options?

That kind of information is critical, and it's just too silly in this internet-fueled, get-it-now culture that there is no consumer-friendly list of local farmers' markets with maps, hours, links and dates. So I decided to make my own. And now you, too, can get a complete schedule for Portland's markets, and a map of where to find them, right here at GSNW! Woo hoo!

I think there's one in West Linn.

What would be great is if there were a Twitter account that would send an update each day to notify which are open.

Perhaps some enterprising person will undertake that.

Actually, Eamon Molloy, Hillsdale Farmers' Market manager, is doing just that. You can follow him on Twitter at @efbm and get a daily reminder. (Thanks Eamon!)
