     The Portland Farmers' Market is a year-round market featuring fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruits, herbs, meats, flowers, and a variety of other farm products.  The market has been in existence since 1768 in a variety of forms and places and is now predominantly in Monument Square every Wednesday, when feasible.
