Cherries, Berries and Breweries!
Our recent weather has delayed many crops, or at least, slowed them down. This has made it difficult for some of our farm vendors since they don’t have enough ripe produce to bring to the market! Thank goodness for cool crops. Right now plenty of crunchy greens, radishes, turnips, kale, spinach and onions are available. Last week I even spied some newly harvested red potatoes (hint, hint, Brown Bottle Farm)
Speaking of Brown Bottle Farm, Anna is bringing a lovely supply of signature salad mixes, lettuce heads, purple cauliflower and broccoli.
Our cool spring has provided us with beautiful rhubarb and RJ Farms has plenty! Jackie bought some last weekend and made a Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble.
All Recipes has a great recipe that combines the tartness of the rhubarb with the sweetness of strawberries topped with a delicious oat crumble. Serve with fresh whipped cream, ice cream (or vegan alternatives) and enjoy! Here is the link to the recipe so you can make your own.
Although the weather would have us think differently, cherry season is upon us! RJ’s is selling them in 3 pint packs which makes it perfect for easy snacking. More farms will be following with cherries, as well. Pheasant’s Eye is coming up next. If you’re craving a cherry pie but don’t want to make your own, check out The Pie Guy! You can pre-order a pie right off the app and I am here to say Bart’s cherry pie is one of my favorites. Claire will be manning the pie booth this Saturday so make sure and get your order in. Claire sells out every week pretty quickly so it’s best to plan ahead!
New Vendor Alert!
We’re excited to welcome local brewery, Coin Toss Brewing, to our market family. Locally crafted, Coin Toss serves ‘a traditional lineup of handcrafted beer along with our Heritage Series, brewed from historical recipes.’
Coin Toss is known for their lagers, ales and IPAs. This weekend Tim and team will bring a fine collection for purchase. Sampling will be available in compliance with both OLCC and Oregon Department of Agriculture requirements. Be sure to stop by and check them out. Welcome Coin Toss!
A Word About Our Pre-Order App, What’s Good
Our app offers the convenience of ordering from home for a simpler process of shopping the market and supporting local. We are still operating a drive up lane located at the far side of the market for our customers who prefer no contact or those that are simply too busy to get out and peruse.
We are also open to walk in customers so basically we are offering our customers the best of both worlds. Whichever method you prefer please know we appreciate your continued support of the market in these turbulent times!
If you use the app you will now see a ‘pop up’ when you start ordering: Pick Up At Vendor OR Drive Thru
For those of you who choose the Pick Up At Vendor feature please be aware that you will need to walk into the market and pick up your orders directly from vendors.
The Drive Thru option indicates to the vendor that you want to use our drive up lane and have volunteers load your purchases into your vehicle.
Selecting an option is imperative in order for our farmers to know where to put your orders. Remember weekly cut-off is 11pm on Thursday evenings.
Don’t forget the Double Up Food Bucks for SNAP recipients. Just follow the steps listed below so that you can get a 10.00 match to use in the market for produce, nuts, veggie starts, meat, cheese and milk!

All of our vendors are required to wear masks at all times. We politely ask you to leave your furry friends at home (except for service animals). We have increased spacing between vendors and operate with 2 entrances into the market for your continued health and safety.
See you on Saturday!
