It’s Farmers Market Week In Oregon!

Here are some great reasons to shop your local farmers markets!

By shopping local you can help stimulate your local economy.

Your dollars go straight to the farmer who grew your food.

Food is fresher, grown without chemicals and less handled.

You are helping protect your environment.

Farmers Markets provide fresh food access for low income families.

Shopping outside in the fresh air is healthier.

You can find new and interesting foods to try, which diversifies the palate.

Learn cooking tips, recipes and meal ideas.

This year our market has faced unprecedented challenges in light of COVID. We are grateful to have remained open against difficult odds and numerous roadblocks. We are thankful Farmers Markets remain an essential business in our State. Many hours have gone into making sure our market operates safely.
This week we honor Farmers Markets here and across the country and the vital role they play in providing fresh food access. Thank you to our customers for your faithful support of Oregon City Farmers Market!
Peaches are at peak season right now and the market has plenty. Kiyokawa Farms, Pheasant’s Eye, Squirrelly Jane’s and RJ Farms all have sweet, juicy varieties. If you’re looking for a fun way to enjoy a fresh peach in the simplest of ways, consider grilling them! Fill each half with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream (from Lady Lane Dairy) and you have the perfect summery dessert. I love this simple recipe from Martha Stewart.

GRILLED PEACHES

4 Peaches
2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (or vegan butter such as Miyokos or Earth Balance)

DIRECTIONS:

Heat grill to Medium-Low
Halve and pit peaches, brush cut sides with butter
Place peaches on grill; cover grill, and cook until charred and softened, about 4-5 minutes per side

Killer Burger is back at the market this weekend! Perfect for picking up lunch when you’re done shopping at the market
By George Farm continues to bring delicious cheese from their small herd of Jersey cows. If you haven’t tried it yet, you will want to make sure and pick some up. Not sure which cheese to try? Ben and Joe will gladly provide plenty of detail to help you in your purchase. Up your Happy Hour game with some Fromage Blanc, fresh sliced peaches or melons, a baguette from Grano Bakery and wine from Forest Edge Vineyards.
Ryan and Anna of Brown Bottle Farm are taking this Saturday off from market in order to start prepping fall crops. No worries, they plan to return the following week with plenty of new produce additions!
