Finding yourself thirsty in this beautiful spring sun? Vendors Sacred Summit and Portland Juice Company are releasing new seasonal flavors this spring to help quench your thirst. Stop by their booths for a taste and a bottle to take home.
With sunnier skies soaring over Portland, now is a great time to start biking to the market. While we do encourage pedaling, for the safety of all of our customers we ask that those with bicycles walk while inside the market itself. You can walk your bike through or use one of the many bike locks located around the market while you shop. 
Share Your HFM Stories!
Do you have an HFM story to share with us? We want to know all about why you love the Hollywood Farmers Market and what brings you here each week. Maybe you met your significant other at the market or your family has been coming since the very beginning. Stop by our booth in the center of Hancock Street this Saturday where we will be collecting stories to share and tell us what you think makes our market so great.
Power of Produce kids program starts June 9th!
It's just three weeks until our new kids program, Power of Produce (POP) Club begins on Saturday, June 9th. POP Club will run every Saturday through September 1st. It's a new HFM kids program designed to empower kids to make healthy food choices, introducing them to where their food comes from through fun activities.

Here's how POP Club works:

  • Kids, aged 5-12 come to the POP Club booth on market day, located in Hancock Street toward the east (45th Ave) entrance to the market.
  • Fill out their POP Club passports if this is their first visit to the booth.
  • Participate in activities based around food, nutrition and food growing. At every POP Club market you can find activities such as produce tastings, salad-making, scavenger hunts, games and more!

Seascape Strawberries
Happy Harvest Farm
Seascapes are the quiet hero of Northwest strawberry varieties; always the first to arrive at market in the spring, and continuing to produce all summer long and even into the fall! Happy Harvest will have plentiful Seascapes this Saturday, sold by the pint, half-flat and flat. Hood strawberries are just a week or two away!

'Korbs Highlight' Dahlia
Old House Dahlias
Mark from Old House Dahlias has the shortest season of any HFM vendor - he brings his dahlias bulbs over from Tillamook for just two Saturdays in May, and this Saturday will be his second and final appearance. He has over 50 varieties of dahlia, and one of his favorites this year is "Korbs Highlight", a yellow-white stunner that produces prolific bulbs.

Pork Sausage
This featured product also has a connection to another HFM vendor - Naked Acres Farm! They had a breeding sow that had gotten too big to butcher into traditional cuts. Luckily, Ramona from Nourishment was looking for sausage meat and went "whole hog"! She'll now be offering pork sausage, which you can have in any of Nourishment's breakfast burritos or chilequiles.
