New farmers market will run 4-8:30 p.m. every Wednesday at Gresham Station through Aug. 28

As night neared, hundreds of Gresham residents explored the newest farmers market to come to the community — discovering more than local vendors showcasing the best local produce and handcrafted goods.

The Gresham Station Twilight Market kicked off the season with its inaugural market Wednesday, June 5, in the parking lot at the Gresham Station Shopping Center, 649 N.W. 12th St. The event is helmed by the Gresham Farmers Market, which hosts the popular Saturday festivities downtown.

But the minds behind the evening market wanted to provide an opportunity to partake in farmers market fun for those who normally can’t make it on the weekend.
