We had a blast at this farmer's market. Lots of gorgeous vegetables and flowers from nearby farms, and a wonderful selection of hand crafts to see (not the usual run of the mill stuff). We will definitely go back next time we're in Portland on...More

I like to walk in the park. The fountain / duck pond is nice. The Rose Garden is beautiful. And the Saturday Morning Farmer's Market in the Summer shouldn't be missed
