2018 will bring our 5th season with a terrific group of vendors. With our relocation in 2016 to the beautiful Mt. Hood Community College campus, we now have a truly amazing location to grow with.  Opening day will be Saturday, April 14th, 2018. We are located in parking lot "W" at the corner of Kane and SE Stark Street. We have generous parking right next to the market lot and we have landscaping all around us. 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.

April 14th through Sept. 29th - 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM
