Butter Boards are in … Spread the Word!

By 6 October 2022

October marks our final countdown to winter season.

Don’t forget you can still shop from us year-round, even in January! Beginning November 5th, we will transition to our winter season and our winter hours will be 10-2 every other Saturday. With a robust group of farms and small businesses, shopping for locally grown foods will be accessible throughout the dreary days of winter.

In the next few weeks, we will be sharing our vendor lineup for the season and while not all of them are able to attend every market you can stay tuned through our newsletter, website and social media for updates.

This week we’re excited to welcome back the following vendors:
Westward Whiskey
Small Baking Company
Diana’s Delights
PowWow4BowWow
Goddess Mousse
Sew Silly
Divine Mini Donuts
Rock Creek Romneys

We hope you will join us this Saturday from 9-2 for your locally grown and prepared groceries. We have an amazing display of both summer and fall produce! It’s the melding of two seasons and we couldn’t be happier!

You can find us at 2051 Kaen Road (corner of Kaen and Beavercreek Roads) here in Oregon City

See you at the market!

What is a butter board?

A butter board is a simple way to display compound butter (or any butter, for that matter) for all your guests to dig into with warm bread or crackers. You just use a butter knife to create a base layer of softened butter on your favorite cutting board or serving plate, then top it with a parade of your favorite ingredients. Everything from edible flowers to caramelized onions will work on the blank canvas, so you can create a flavor palette that will complement dinner perfectly.

This week we’re taking some inspiration from Beaverton Farmers Market, Eating Well and local chef/cookbook author, Joshua McFadden (photo sourced from his book, Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables).

Butter boards are taking over the charcuterie trays by storm, just in time for fall and winter holidays. Because of their simplistic nature, the quality of ingredients used is paramount. For the butter, look no further than Lady Lane Farm for freshly churned Jersey butter.With your butter lightly salted, you can add just about anything else to ramp up the flavor. Take inspiration from pesto and add some pine nuts, roasted garlic, chopped basil and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Lean into the sweet citrus by adding lemon, lime and orange zest, then topping with a little drizzle of honey. Celebrate the last of the summer stone fruit with chopped peaches, blackberries, fresh figs, microgreens, mint, basil and honey, or go savory with caramelized onions, thyme, rosemary and garlic.

Sticking with healthy add-ins like lots of fresh herbs, fruit and veggies can help you keep your board from feeling too heavy. Just be sure to chop up any large additions so they’ll be easier to scoop up with the warm bread (or with a butter knife, if you’d rather serve it that way).
