A few years ago we were lucky to have any eggs at the Market on Saturdays, now we have plenty…..and this week we’ll have 3 kinds!
You can buy hens eggs from Hansens Family Farms, Family To Family Farms, Leone’s Farm and Sweet Home Farms. I’m listing them as I get asked all the time “who has eggs?”
Duck eggs can be found at Gardenripe Farm’s booth and duck eggs and even goose eggs can be bought from Olga Reynolds also. Olga has been coming to the market on and off since the first year we opened (2005). She will be bringing some of her ducks with her too, for the kids to meet!
Why hightlight eggs now? Well they are an easy nutritious meal when made into omlettes with some crumbled up soft chevre , greens and sweet onions. Frittatas are another easy meal you can make with sliced, just-cooked new potatoes, onions, zucchini, garlic and anything else you can think of…like a little salami from Olympic Provisions, or some of their Kelbasa sausage! Hansen’s Farm will have their Pepperoni back!….
plus those egg whites will make some fab. meringues, especially duck egg whites, perfect with all the wonderful berries now in the market and whipped cream for a stunningly easy and eye-catching desert.
The market vendors are starting to take their vacation time so this Saturday Three Brothers Nursery will be gone, as will Natures’ Wild Harvest (mushrooms) and Diana’s Delights (preserves)….but we welcome back Curds On the Way with their cheese, yogurt-making kits and their preserving supplies also back are Blossom Fruit Vinegars! New this week is the Clackamas County’s Green Youth Corp. bringing lettuce, their first product to harvest from their newly planted “farm” on the County Campus….and taking orders for fire wood , available this fall.
