Interactive Map of Local Farmer's Markets
Here's a handy interactive map showing farmer's market locations throughout the Portland area. Click of the red dots for market details.

You'll find plenty of root vegitables, braising greens and lettuces, and of course plant starts for your own vegetable garden.

Bring your reusable shopping bags and plenty of small bills, though some of the markets will trade you a credit/debit card for wooden tokens that all vendors accept, which can be easier to handle than cash. We've indicated those markets that accept EBT or other food assistant coupons - more access to good food for all.

Spring Vegetable Garden; Easy, Fun & Rewarding

As winter transforms into early spring, there are many fantastic vegetables that grow best in cooler seasons.

Spring Vegatable Garden; Easy, Fun & Rewarding. As winter transforms into early spring, there are many fantastic vegetables that grow best in cooler seasons. Info here!

 The first vine ripened tomato may still be a few months away, but there’s still plenty to keep you busy in the vegetable garden. Take advantage of the cool, wet weather of spring to put in multiple crops of nutritious vegetables.

Spring Favorites
Here's a list of great choices along with their days til harvest that are carefree & easy to grow:

Arugula (30), Beets (45), Broccoli (70) Brussels Sprouts (80), Carrots (50), Peas (60), Kale (75), Onions: seeds (125), sets (100), Potatoes: 2-3 eyes (90), Radish (25), Spinach (55).

It Doesn’t Get Easier
Choose a sunny location, sow seeds in loose well drained garden soil as soon as the soil can be worked and let nature take its course. Plant a second crop two weeks after the first for a sustained Spring harvest. We prefer to plant garlic and shallots in the fall, but both do fine as spring crops, so go ahead and plant them too!

Ways to Recycle Your Tree

With the holiday's upon us, here's a few tips for proper disposal of unwanted wrapping paper, wreaths and trees.

Holiday Recycling Questions

  • Can glossy holiday gift bags go in the blue cart?
    Paper gift bags can be recycled. Tip: Usually if you can tear the paper fairly easily it will pulp up at the paper mill. Gift bags can be reused or donated to charity.
  • Can cellophane or foil wrapping paper go in the blue cart?
    Non-paper wrapping material should not go in the blue roll carts. Most “foil-like” paper is metallic ink on paper and is accepted with recycling.
  • Can present ribbons be recycled in the blue cart?
    Non-paper ribbons are not accepted (very few ribbons are paper-based).

    Plenty more tips below this break!
