Have you been to the Lloyd Farmers Market lately? If you didn’t get a chance to make it during the summer, never fear –the farmers market will continue on, every Tuesday, through the winter! We have the unique benefit of being entirely under the cover of a huge beautiful gazebo, so we stay cozy and dry no matter what the weather. The Lloyd Farmers Market is located in the Oregon Square Courtyard on NE Holladay, between 7th and 9th Aves, right next to the 7th Ave MAX stop. The market hours are 10am to 2pm.
Some of the vendors at the Lloyd Farmers Market might be familiar to you from Hollywood Farmers Market, since we manage both markets. Our newest addition is Persephone Farm, a 55-acre certified organic produce farm in Lebanon, OR (outside Corvallis). You will know Persephone from their longtime and overflowing booth at HFM. Also, if (like many of us) you’re addicted toNourishment’s breakfast burritos, Nourishment is also at the Lloyd Farmers Market to give you your fix, selling bean/rice bowls, chilequiles, and soups. Other overlapping vendors areNature’s Wild Harvest and Kiyokawa Family Orchards.
And of course, as you know from the Hollywood Farmers Market, the winter can be a bountiful time for local agriculture, even if the weather is a tad dreary. Some of the products available this fall and winter include apples, beets, breads, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, chanterelles, chestnuts, chilequiles, coffee, collard greens, cookies, eggs, garlic, goat milk soap, greens, hazelnuts, herbs, honey, hummus, jam, kale, mushrooms, onions, pastries, pears, popcorn, potatoes, prunes, rice/bean bowls, salamis, soup, spinach, tamales, turnips, winter squash. Is your mouth watering yet? See below for a full list of vendors at the market.
Whether you’re looking for a tasty healthy lunch, some midweek grocery shopping, or just a quick snack, the Lloyd Farmers Market has got you covered! To get more information on the market, or to sign up for our weekly email updates, go to www.lloydfarmersmarket.com or our Facebook.
