THE BORING MARKET The Boring Market is one of the newest and best Sunday morning experiences in the Portland metro area. At The Boring Market our vendors and farmers are local, producer-only and well vetted by our market manager and team. Whether you’re looking for fresh produce, breads, seasonal fruits, veggies, eggs, or meats, you’ll find it here. Need fresh cut flowers, handmade soaps, or locally crafted artisanal goods? We’ll have those too. Additionally, during the market you'll find Cars and Coffee simultaneously taking place at Mt Hood Center every Sunday morning. You'll be able to peruse the market, walk through an array of classic and modern cars, and chat with car enthusiasts. Stick around after the market for the Mt Hood Center Summer Concert Series in the meadow with the doors opening at 5pm. Our location at 29450 SE Lariat Ln. Boring, OR, right in between both Gresham and Sandy, provides an ideal location for the more than 120,000 residents who live within both cities, as well as ample free parking for those that visit from around the expanding Portland area. The Boring Market showcases local musicians as well. Listen to bluegrass, country folk, or easy jazz on any given Sunday morning while you shop local small businesses that you know and trust. Stroll the market with a coffee or beer, chat with neighbors and friends, or join in with monthly activities for children and adults. One visit, one Sunday and you’ll be hooked!
