Love this!!! 💕

Farmers Markets are deemed as an essential service and our market team takes that responsibility seriously. We are proud to announce that we will be able to open our Downtown Hillsboro Saturday Market on time this Saturday (4/25). The location will be moved a short block to the Washington County Parking Lot on the corner of 1st Ave and Lincoln St in Downtown Hillsboro. (Some may remember our short stint at that location during the construction of the Civic Center Plaza.) To support social distancing and prioritize the community's health, this market will be accepting preorders only with a drive thru market pickup. Pickup hours will be 9am-1pm. Preorders will be available direct from our vendors and through a market shopping app called What's Good. We are working with our vendors now and will announce which vendors are participating very soon.

Our Orenco Station Sunday Market will be postponed one week and is expected to open on May 3rd. Details of this market will be announced shortly.

We thank you all for your patience as we navigate this new landscape. We will make regular updates as we know more. We have been so blessed by the community support and wanted to thank each of you for everything you are doing to support local farmers and small businesses.
