The Beaverton Summer Farmers Market kicked off on May 11th and runs every Saturday from 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m. until November 23rd. The biggest all-agricultural market in the state adds two new features this year: a doggie day care so that your pooch doesn't need to stay home on Market day -- with all proceeds going to charity, and a Local Liquid lounge, with a rotating cast of local brewers, wine makers and distillers keeping visitors well lubricated and encouraging folks to take a load off and hang out a while during their shopping.

It's Portland: many of you are already riding your bike on a consistent basis. But for those who aren't and want to give it a try, the League of American Bicyclists' National Bike to Work Week, from May 13th-17th, is the perfect opportunity.
If the extra calorie burn, stress reduction and overall health benefits aren't motivation enough, how about free breakfasts, massages and gelato, among other incentives? OK, so after all of those things, maybe you won't come out calorie-negative, but they definitely make for nice rewards for getting your butt out the door and onto that bike you've been meaning to ride.
Read more about the events going on, as well as several recent accolades that have come Portland's way in our coverage of National Bike to Work Week, and National Bike Month.
