Farmers Market Now Weekly | Search Underway for Market Manager
Posted by James Helms on
The Rocky Butte Farmers Market at the base of Rocky Butte in Portland, OR will be opening as a weekly market June of 2022. The first year, pre-pandemic, the market held two separate pop-up markets while being hosted by the Dharma Rain Zen Center. Year two the leadership team continued to grow and expand the market to a monthly basis. The host site the last two years has been the parking lot of Mannahouse Churches Rocky Butte campus. The site has a large parking lot that can accommodate significant vehicle parking. A successful weekly market greatly expands healthy and farm-direct food access to NE Portlanders near Rocky Butte.

Coffee at the Market
We were invited back by the Farmers Market this year to vend our coffee. Lily will be responsible for overseeing the market with the help of Melinda. We're looking forward to continuing to be present at the market this year and are excited about the expanded access for the community.
