Portland Realtor Fun Tips: Portland Farmers’ Market Reopens March 19th!

Saturday, March 19th is the official re-opening of the Portland Farmers’ Market’s 2011 season, so head down to the south Park Blocks in Portland’s Cultural District bright and early for the best celebration of local food, music, and culture in Portland after its long winter break. Grab ingredients for a fantastic spring meal, or just grab a cup of coffee and meet some farmers and Portland food enthusiasts. You never know, you’re likely to meet some of the most popular chefs in Portland shopping for the day’s menu!

The Portland Farmers’ Market is perhaps best known for its Portland State University campus incarnation on Saturdays, and the PSU market IS the longest running market in town, but PFM is actually a non-profit organization that oversees a growing number of markets throughout the city. Last year was the first year of the Pioneer Courthouse Square Farmers’ Market, which filled the popular gathering spot charmingly called “Portland’s Living Room” with fresh fruits, vegetables, and artisan foods. For most of the year, Portlanders can shop for local, fresh, and organic foods five days a week at six different locations throughout the city, from Southeast off of 20th and Hawthorne, to NW 23rd, to NE at King Elementary (for a list of all locations, times, vendors, and more, check out the PFM website). That means that wherever you’re planning on buying a home in Portland, you have easy access to the best food in the Northwest. Every quadrant has an opportunity to experience the “best of the country in the heart of the city.”

Portland’s farmers markets stand for the best of the city’s values, ingenuity, and community. If you’re thinking of relocating to Portland, ask Kristie to take you to one of the amazing farmers markets on your tour of homes for sale in Portland. Grab a cup of coffee as you browse the stalls, listen to local musicians, taste the best of Oregon produce, and support our local community and economy. It’s just one more reason why Portland is the best city in America, and a really good reason to call this city home.

Location: South Park Blocks on the PSU Campus, Between SW Montgomery and SW Harrison Portland, OR 97205

About the Cultural District: New York City has Central Park and Washington, D.C. has the Mall, but Portland has the Park Blocks. Flanking these 12 blocks of green grass, statues, flower gardens and benches lie the cultural treasures of the city of Portland. This extremely walkable neighborhood is home to the largest collection of 20th century art in the Pacific Northwest in the Portland Art Museum, the vast collections of photographs, documents, book, and artifacts detailing our rich past at the Oregon Historical Society, six theaters, and more historically significant architecture than almost anywhere else in the city. The Cultural District is a great place to visit, but it’s also a fantastic place to live. Embark on your urban lifestyle in one of the historic brownstones with french doors and antique tiled bathrooms, or soar above the skyline in one of the modern condos full of air and light with the best views of downtown and Mt. Hood. There are so many amazing opportunities waiting for you in the Cultural District, and the wealth of activities and opportunities for peaceful relaxation in nature will convince you to make this Portland jewel your next home.
