Farm Fresh Market: Always Fresh, Always The Best, Certified sustainable by The Food Alliance.Our mission: Sustainable farming at home and abroad.
Open daily 9am to 6pm through 11/3/13 for the 2013 season.
With local supermarkets just down the block for many people in Portland, why would anyone choose to take a drive out to Sauvie Island just for produce? It's simple: volume, price, and quality!
Our goal at the Pumpkin Patch is to offer large amounts of any single fruit or vegetable at farm-direct prices. What's more, our produce is hand-harvested and PICKED DAILY from the field, ensuring the freshest fruits and vegetables you can buy. Our colorful market is filled with more than 40 in-season fruits and vegetables grown right here on the farm. For additional variety, we hand-select other fresh produce from neighboring farms to suit our customer's needs. As always, our customers enjoy a wide selection of locally grown farm fresh, hand-harvested and U-pick produce.
The market opens at the beginning of June, when the strawberries are ripe, and closes in November when harvest is over. Each month brings with it more produce until we're bursting at the seams by October!
Visit the Pumpkin Patch market and discover the special crops that give the farm its well-known name. Some crops will only last a short time, while others enjoy the longevity of the season.
In June we kick off the season with strawberries. Raspberries are available quickly thereafter. We also offer plenty of cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli.
July's heat quickly ripens the blueberries, apricots, marionberries, cherries, potatoes, Walla Walla onions, green beans, pickling cucumbers, Hermiston watermelon, and the biggie ... sweet corn! This includes "How Sweet It Is" white corn, "Peaches-'n-Cream" bicolor corn, and Golden Jubilee super sweet yellow corn.
August weather introduces fresh peaches and nectarines.
September blows in apples and pears galore from Hood River and our farm, as well as tomatoes, peppers, and another biggie ... winter squash, in every imaginable variety!
Finally, the month of October draws a standing ovation for brussel sprouts, Indian corn, decorative & birdhouse gourds, cornstalks, hay bales, and, of course, the largest supply of pumpkins found in Oregon!
