Farm Fresh Family Fun: The Best Farmers Markets in the Country

Read next


Families and farmers markets go together like organic peas and straight-from-the-ranch carrots. A farmers market outing is a chance to stock up on fresh produce, enjoy your community and the outdoors, and teach the youngsters a thing or two about where their food comes from. To get your adventure started, we’ve searched the nation for the very best family-friendly farmers markets–many with special kid extras like story times, face-painting, cooking classes, and more.

Portland State University Farmers Market – Portland, OR

Portland is full of awesome markets and the PSU Farmers Market is no exception. Beyond the extraordinary market fare (fresh produce, flowers, baked goods homemade kimchi, and more), the crowning kid-friendly glory is Kids Cook at the Market. Through this program, junior chefs cultivate their culinary skills through fun cooking classes. Classes fill up quickly but snagging a spot for your little foodies is totally worth it.
