About The Milwaukie Farmers Market
Welcome to 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.
“The Best Farmers Market”
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 continuously since the market’s inception.
The Objectives of the Milwaukie Farmers Market
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.
Many visitors make a walk to the Market part of their Sunday routine — a little exercise, fresh air, and a chance to check out what’s new around downtown or along the riverfront. Bring a backpack and come on foot!
Getting to downtown Milwaukie by bike couldn't be easier. Located on the banks for the Willamette River there are multiple "bike-friendly" was to get to the Market. The Springwater Corridor Trial, the major segment of the "40-Mile Loop" is just 1 mile north of Downtown Milwaukie</a>. From Downtown Portland and close in SE enjoy the scenic ride from the East-Side Esplanade, through Sellwood and right to the Market. The 6.5 mile ride was created on decommissioned railroad lines so it makes for an easy Sunday morning ride!
