Mid-week farmers market to set up shop next week

Tigard's first-ever Wednesday farmers market kicks off Wednesday April 1, and you're all invited.

Starting April 1, the Tigard-Area Farmers Markets will run a mid-week market on Wednesday evenings at the Tigard Grange Hall.

The Farmers Market's regular market, which opens in May, will also continue at its location on Southwest Burnham Street.

The Wednesday market is meant to appeal to commuters on their way home from work, Chamber CEO Debi Mollahan told The Times in January.

The market will include fresh produce and kettle corn, as well as local businesses offering homemade soaps, breads, the Supa Fresh Youth Farm, hummus, vodka and honey.

“It’s a mini-business incubator,” Mollahan said. “There are lots of people who want to start their own business, and farmers markets offer a minimal investment to vet their product. That’s why we’re engaged.”

To kick off the market, Tigard Mayor John L. Cook will be on hand for a ribbon cutting.

The Tigard Grange Hall is located at 13770 S.W. Pacific Highway

The midweek market will run from 3 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays through August.
