One of the founding members of the Milwaukie Farmers Market, Edward “Ed” Zumwalt, passed away on March 23. Ed was instrumental in working with a handful of neighbors to dream up the farmers market and worked with the Milwaukie Downtown Development Association to get the market off the ground in July 1999. This was but one of the many community projects Ed helped to create and sustain while living in Milwaukie for over 50 years. Please take time to read the attached obituary. Milwaukie was lucky to have a person like Ed that spoke up for the working class families in this town and worked tirelessly to create community events like the Farmers Market, Milwaukie Festival Daze, First Friday Events, and Summer Concert Series.
Thank you for all you did for Milwaukie and we will keep you in our hearts and minds as we go into the 22nd season of the Milwaukie Farmers Market.
Edward “Ed” William Zumwalt
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 of the Willamette River there are multiple "bike-friendly" ways to get to the Market. The Springwater Corridor Trail, the major segment of the "40-Mile Loop" is just 1 mile north of Downtown Milwaukie. From Downtown Portland and close in SE enjoy the scenic ride from the Eastbank 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! For more information about getting around by bike in and around Portland visit The City of Portland's website.
