Access is convenient from both Kane and SE Stark Street.

Our Website is growing and we now have "For Vendors" & Newsletter Signup Pages as well as a Gallery of recent Market Photos.

Keep checking back - we will soon have a "Meet our Vendor Page" up and will be adding to it throughout the year.

JASKAMON - "Island Style" Reggae

The drive behind the JASKAMON music project is Barry Klusman who produced their latest CD, "All The People". With his characteristic left-handed guitar playing and smooth vocals, Barry has a rich history with the Oregon music scene.

Barry came to Oregon in the early 70s. It was vastly different from what he had known in New Jersey and Massachusetts where he grew up. He was one of many people who were struck by the uniqueness of the Pacific Northwest and quickly grew roots in Portland.

It wasn't long before Barry started a band, and then another... He started singing popular cover tunes but Barry soon incorporated originals in his acts. Some of his bands, like SPYN and the Eclectic Coconuts, became enormously popular with the potential to become national. But as Barry likes to say, "Although music is my life, my life is in Oregon."

JASKAMON's new CD is Barry's best music ever. Called "All The People" the CD contains a mix of high-energy island music with a reggae-ska-soca rhythm and Caribbean ballads that have been well produced with four main players and contributions from many of Portland's best musicians playing keyboards, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, marimba and miscellaneous percussion.

The CD will be on sale at the Gresham Saturday Market before, during and after the performance.

Some of the songs feature Randy Foote of The Skankin' Yankees, a seasoned musician who has played with the Hudson Brothers, ComboNation and even had a video on MTV.

"All The People" was conceived and grown in Oregon. JASKAMON's unique island style is uplifting and energizing. With each tune you can feel the warm sun shine and lively rhythm of the tropics.
