The downtown branch of the Portland Farmers Market, located on the south Park Blocks smack-dab in the middle of Portland State University's campus, will be celebrating the beginning of its first ever year-round season on Saturday January 3.

The addition of the newly created Winter Market is the result of a partnership between Portland Farmers Market and Portland State University.

The Winter Market will be open every Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm, starting January 3 and ending February 28. Previously the Farmers Market operated only from mid-March to mid-December.

Attendees can expect to find winter produce such as purple and green kale, broccoli and cauliflower, carrots, parsnips, beets, and baskets of apples, pears, winter squash, potatioes, and onions. In addition to produce, 60 vendors will be seling meats, fish, eggs, breads, cheeses, sweets, and hot food and drink on-site.

The Portland Farmers Market is an independent nonprofit that gives local food growers and producers a space to sell their products, and has been in operation since 1992. In 2013 more than 720,000 shoppers purchased food items and other goods from more than 190 vendors, resulting in over $8 million in combined sales,
