Welcome to the 16th Season of the Milwaukie Sunday Farmers Market! Starting in May and every Sunday through October, you can find produce, a wide variety of prepared foods, cut flowers, plants, and countless gift items at the Market the Oregonian called the Best of 2012. By foot, by bike, by bus, by car — however you come, you can find our busy Market at the intersection of Main and Harrison in Downtown Milwaukie, from 9:30am to 2pm every Sunday.
Every week we bring you music to enjoy while patronizing over 75 vendors, enjoying a meal, or just chatting with friends and neighbors. Beyond shopping and eating, there’s seated massage, face painting, and a Community Booth with information about projects around town, too.
Stay tuned to this website as the season progresses, and we’ll keep you up-to-date on what seasonal produce is coming in, what cooking demonstrations are being given, and other special events.
“We are blessed to live in a part of the country filled with such incredible healthy produce and a great community of creative people. Our market strives to showcase the bounty that Oregon & SW Washington has to offer. By supporting local farmers, ranchers, bakers and artisans you are supporting this great place we call home.”
The Best Farmers Market- 2012
The Milwaukie Sunday Farmers’ Market started in June 1999. We began our first Sunday with 7 vendors and now have over 70 different vendors each week. We are the longest running Sunday farmers’ market in Oregon. Two of the market’s co-founders, Market Master Brendan Eiswerth and Business Manager James Bernard have been with the market continously since the market’s inception.
The objectives of the Milwaukie Sunday Farmers’ Market are:
(a) To give the community access to a wide variety of fresh, local, in-season farm products direct from the producer.
(b) To provide a centralized location for local producers to market directly to the buying public.
(c) To provide an informal, social gathering place in an open-air setting for the Milwaukie community.
(d) To enhance the central business community.
(e) To highlight Celebrate Milwaukie Inc. and introduce the community to a non-profit organization with the
goal of improving Milwaukie’s community appeal.
The Milwaukie Sunday Farmers Market is a production of Celebrate Milwaukie, Inc. (CMI), a community non-profit. To learn more about CMI, check out our website.
