Tuesday Night Market kicks off on Main Street
The weekly Tuesday Night Market kicked off its 2017 season on June 13 in downtown Hillsboro.
Crowds will be filling East Main Street from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for everything from paintings by local artists to strawberries, peas and fresh-made doughnuts through August.
This week, the market welcomed two performers; FOLSOM on the main stage, and Skip and Friends on Northeast Third Avenue.
The market was also a celebration for the Hillsboro 2035 plan, a vision of how the city should look in the next 18 years. The plan focuses on community wellness, social support for seniors, those in poverty and a need for more affordable housing. The plan also looks at police and fire services, education, recreation and the environment.
The Tuesday Night Market is one of several markets in Hillsboro.
The city also features a downtown farmer's market on Saturdays that runs through October. Orenco Station, Tuality Hospital and Kaiser Westside Medical Center also host weekly markets.
The Tuesday Night Market continues every Tuesday evening until Aug. 29.
