Event: Market Q’s Weekly Farmers Market Needs Buskers

May 21, 2011

Every Saturday this summer from May 7th – September 3rd (with the exception of July 9th; Mississippi’s Street Fair weekend)  the Q Center on 4115 N Mississippi Ave is hosting a farmer’s market from 9am – 2pm.

This endeavor has been about bringing everyone together… I have been working with nonprofits, small businesses, farms, individuals, community members, neighborhood advocates, and others are showing interest daily. I wanted this to be a chance to provide a service for our Mississippi Ave neighborhood and create a sense of community that could be felt regardless of whether one was LGBTQ, straight, or simply an ally. The support I have received from Portland has been remarkable and I am thrilled that this is my new home...” says Ali Williams, Founder & Operations Manager.

They have lots of goodies, and things will really start going in June once the veggies are ready to be harvested. This Saturday, for instance, they will have fresh coffee and some breakfast treats, as well as honey, spinach, onions, potatoes, cilantro, asparagus, salsas, hummus, soups, whole grain flour, oats, grits, tamales, vegan cheese, eggs, baked goods. Much more in the upcoming weeks.

They are looking for some folks interested in playing between 10-2.  With shade available, most of the time there will be access to a space under a roll up garage, or of course playing in the sunshine is always an option. They have electricity if you need it, but would love an acoustic set.

The best part? They welcome all genres of music and are happy to cross promote you or your band on all of their social media and print press.

If interested in performing, please contact Ali Williams, Founder & Operations Manager at or (479) 799-5086
