The Gresham Station Twilight Market kicked off the season with its inaugural market Wednesday, June 5, in the parking lot at the Gresham Station Shopping Center, 649 N.W. 12th St. The event is helmed by the Gresham Farmers Market, which hosts the popular Saturday festivities downtown.

But the minds behind the evening market wanted to provide an opportunity to partake in farmers market fun for those who normally can't make it on the weekend.

The first Twilight Market had items available including flowers, soaps, original artwork, meat, dog treats, jewelry, produce, berries, baked goods and more. Downtown Gresham's Hoppy Brewer was pouring beers, while Schmizza Public House distributed free samples of its pizza.

The market is made possible through a partnership with Harsch Investment Properties, which acquired Gresham Station Shopping Center in September 2018. There is plenty of free parking at the site, and the MAX Blue Line has two stops nearby.

The Twilight Market will run from 4 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Aug. 28.
