Hawthorne Evening Market, a newcomer to Portland's farmers market scene, is set to open in the Trinket parking lot on May 31. The market will be open on Saturday evenings from 4 pm to 7:30 pm and will feature products from local farmers, food artisans, bakeries, as well as artists and crafters. Additionally, in an effort to create a multifaceted event for market goers, the market's organizers plan to draw in the surrounding businesses to host wine and beer tastings, live music, and an outdoor food garden. 2035 SE Cesar E Chavez Blvd.

Looking to expand your cider palate this season? A special dinner hosted by Finnriver Farm & Cidery, an organic family farm and winery in Chimacum, Washington, at Harvester Brewing Gastropub may be just the answer. Patrons will be treated to five courses of gluten-free goodness paired with a specially selected Finnriver cider. The fun will go down Wednesday, May 28 from 6:30–9:30 pm at Harvester Brewing Gastropub (2030 SE 7th St). The $65 tickets are available for purchase online.


On June 13, in a new addition to the Art & Beer series happening at the Portland Art Museum, five breweries (Widmer Brothers Brewing, Breakside Brewery, Ecliptic Brewing, Humble Brewing, and Laurelwood Brewing) will showcase beer inspired by one of the museum’s paintings. In this upcoming installment, brewers draw inspiration from The Drunken Cobbler by Jean-Baptiste Greuze. For $12 ($10 for museum members) event goers will enjoy samples of the beers, light snacks, and a conversation about the painting, art conservation, and the parallels between art preservation and brewing. The program will begin at 6 pm on June 13, at 1119 SW Park Ave.

After a successful five year run, Korkage wine bar and bottle shop will close its Hillsdale doors at the end of June due to personal and family needs. Until closing day, the shop and bistro will continue pouring regional favorites and selling off their inventory at deeply discounted prices. The shop and wine bar will be open 10:30 am to 7:30 pm, seven days a week through the end of the month at 6320 SW Capitol Hwy.


The tasty breads found at Philippe’s Bread are, in part, the result of a partnership with Camus Country Mill’s unique whole grain flour, produced locally using ancient stone mill techniques. Now, fans of Philippe’s Bread can make their own Philippe’s-inspired loaves using Philippe’s Artisan Bread Mix sold by the local organic grain grower and artisan flour producer. The bread mix was designed in direct collaboration with Philippe and is available for purchase online
