Kids Cider-Pressing, plus Blood Drive.

By 3 October 2019

Our annual Kid’s Cider-Pressing is this Saturday. Bring the kids, the grandkids, the neighbors kids and let them throw the apples in the press, turn the wheel and see the juice flow! Everyone gets a cup of hot cider. This is all thanks to OSU Extension Master Food Preservers and community helpers, plus thanks to people who have picked apples and Kiyokawa Orchards and Parsons Farms for their generous donations too.

Time to pick up those last-of-summer fruits. There are still tomatoes (including green) about, plenty of peppers and the last of the basil (Coyote Ridge Farm), so make those sauces now! South Barlow Berries are back for one more market of the season.

It will feel and look like Fall this week. Apart from the fall apples, pears and lots of grapes (RJ Farms) we have winter squash, pumpkins, parsnips, kohlrabi, onions, carrots, and beets are plentiful. Plus there will be lots of mushrooms, both cultivated and wild. Brown Bottle Farm are bringing Hedgehogs, and white and gold Chanterelles.

Get a sample of the winner of the Apple Taste Test last week, Elstar from Kiyokawa Orchards. Parsons Farm’s Pink Pearl was a close second.

The frost did a number on the flower farms. Mays Flowers are out completely for the season and Hill Tree Farm will be back (possibly) next week. We still hope that Lees Flowers are coming…yet to hear if they have been affected by the early cold mornings. Back this week is Stone Circle Cider (English-style hard cider made in Estacada), CH Woodworking, Knife-Sharpening (yay!) Townsend Distillery and Trail Distilling. Gone is Yes Please Indian food (just this Sat).

The Red Cross will be having a blood drive. Make an appointment before you arriver or they do accept drop-ins. Once you’ve donated life-giving blood, make sure you get a hot cup of apple-cider and thank you!

Fall was created for a hot cup of Double Jumps coffee and Grano Bakery’s morning pastries!

Next week it’s our final (unless the weather cooperates in November) Know Your Farmer Know Your Food Market Tour and Cooking Demo, which kicks off at the Info. Booth at 9.30am. After that we have 2 more ‘summer’ markets before we switch seasons to Winter, opening November 9th one hour later at 10am-2pm. Pick up a winter schedule at the Info Booth, there’s a great line up of farmers and vendors coming…we are excited!

A market fave, ‘Silky’ is back this week!

In the music booth on Saturday is Manuel “Silky’ Mayer, always fun, easy listening, a blend of R&B with a soulful flair…pull up a seat and enjoy the morning! Bring those bags, load the coolers…and looking forward to the Holidays, talk to Sue at Fisher Ridge Farm and Christina at Campfire Farms and reserve your holiday meats now!
