This came up in another thread. In order not to make it longer and not to hijack, I thought I would begin a new one one this topic. A friend of mine who was born here did some research and found this link.

Portland Public Market | Oregon Encyclopedia - Oregon History and Culture

The last paragraph talks about a small vestige of market stalls that lasted through the 70's. I believe are the ones I was thinking of and what I saw when I first moved to Portland. But I knew I didn't see them for long.

I can't quite figure out what they are planning now.

They've been very clear about what they're planning ... or rather, what they're thinking of. Who knows what will come to fruition.

The website for the James Beard Public Market is here.

I see. At least I see now. All I saw was an idea when I read about it a couple of weeks ago. It looks a bit up scale for my wallet but I guess we shall see.

I remember the Yamhill Market back in the early-80's and it failed miserably. It had a terrific produce stand but was terribly expensive. Back then the Saturday Market didn't re-open until April, so people weren't enticed to go to that area during the winter, anyway.
