Every Meal Begins at the Farmers Market

By 16 May 2024

Spring is in full swing at the market.

If you were at the market last Saturday it felt like summer had arrived. This Saturday will be cooler, extending the harvest of tender spring produce like flavorful greens, Little Gem lettuces, crisp sugar snap peas, sweet asparagus and plenty of delicious root veggies. While strawberries have yet to make their appearance, rest assured they’re coming soon.

We have 68 vendors planning to attend on Saturday! The market is boasting all locally grown, made and raised foods. Supporting local growers is always in season and food just tastes better. Enjoy live music by Rogue Moon and brunch with fresh offerings from CeCe’s Gyros, Cafe de Crepe, Sara’s Tamales and Divine Mini Donuts.

Looking for a specific vendor in the market? Check out our map at the Information Booth. We have a full list plus their booth locations in case you’re having trouble finding them.

This week we’re talking about Morel Mushrooms and welcoming returning vendors so read on for the details.

We look forward to seeing you from 9am-2pm this Saturday at Clackamas Community College GREEN LOT 1 here in Oregon City.

Morel Mushrooms are an elusive, wild foraged fungi. The hunt is exciting much like finding an easter egg, but the taste is where the fun begins. They’re highly sought after for their meaty texture, nutty and earthy flavor. Morels are often lauded as the Michelin Star of mushrooms in terms of their ability to imbue and absorb flavors. They possess a rich buttery taste when sauteed and contain a large amount of health benefits thanks to their amino acids and antioxidants.

Morels are generally found between the months of March through May.  As a foraged mushroom their demand (and cost) are high due to such a short harvest season.

This week Ron from Pheasant’s Eye Farm will have a small supply and he always sells out quickly. An idea is to buy just a few to perk up a dish. Always cook Morels and do not eat them raw. Ron will have helpful tips in preparing them, but they require little adornment. Morels can be simple in their presentation because they’re mighty in flavor.

We love to welcome returning vendors and this week is no exception.

On Saturday you can find Monica from The Pastry Smith known for her incredible scones, cookies, pastries and pop tarts, all using locally grown produce and ingredients.

Natalia (also known as The Pretzel Lady) will also be here with her made from scratch vegan pretzels in a variety of flavors. Natalia is up in the wee hours to ensure she provides fresh (and often still warm) deliciousness for our market goers.
