The Marketplace originated in 1998 as a way to bring people to Historic Downtown Hillsboro and to provide local farmers and crafters another market venue for selling their goods. The event was embraced by the community and has since grown in size and popularity to become the premiere event it is today and a favorite summertime tradition for people of all ages and all walks of life.
Build community identity by providing a weekly summer festival for:
- cultural enrichment
- commercial exchange
- celebration of heritage and history
The Marketplace currently fills three city blocks in Historic Downtown Hillsboro that are closed to traffic (Main Street from First to Third Avenues, and Second Avenue between Main and Lincoln Streets) and has plans to grow.
Your generous contributions also allow us to ‘pay it forward’. Many volunteers, local groups and non-profit organizations help to make this event a fun and safe place to be on a summer Tuesday evening while supporting their own causes. Together we can go further! Partner Areas
