Over the summer, we had the pleasure of visiting our good friends The Babaies in Portland, Oregon. Both Michele and Ash are real foodies, and they took us to all the best restaurants in Portland, from APizza Scholls and Tasty N Sons to Salt & Straw ice cream and the famous Paley’s Place.
A definite highlight during our visit was a trip to the Portland Farmers Market at Portland State University. According to many sources at the market, this is considered the best farmers market in the world — even better than the one in Paris! Based on the selection of fresh produce and unique culinary offerings, I’d have to agree!
The Saturday Farmers Market at Portland State University is held in the South Park Blocks between SW Hall & SW Montgomery. You can map it on your phone at 1717 SW Park Avenue.
PSU Farmers Market hours are Saturdays, March 16 through December 21
8:30 a.m. — 2 p.m. (Mar. through Oct.)
9 a.m. — 2 p.m. (Nov. & Dec.)
