Make Kraut with NW Ferments gals and take home a jar!

Lots of ‘hands-on’ experiences at the Market this week. The fun gals from NW Ferments are hosting a Kraut Workshop starting at 10.30am on a drop-in basis until all the jars are gone. Ever wanted to try your hand at fermenting? Now’s your chance at this free event and you go home with a quart jar full! We will soon have the late Summer, early Fall cabbage in the market…and you’ll be ready for it. Check out their web site, you can order kits for all kinds of fermented products made within a few yards of the Market site: https://nwferments.com/

Leone’s Farm’s heirloom tomatoes!

Tomatoes are pouring into the Market now and with all the shapes, colors, varieties you may be confused which to choose. This week you can taste them at our annual ‘Vote For You Fave Tomato‘ event! The farmer with the #1 voted tomato gets a Certificate…and we are also seeing who has the biggest tomato but Brown Bottle Farm already won the Blue Ribbon for the biggest at the County Fair last week!

Sweet Pixie Pluerry a new (literally!) fruit from Kiyokawa Orchards, a cross between a cherry and and plum..try one this Saturday!

There is SO much good stuff on the farmers tables right now. Did you notice a colorful new fruit at Kiyokawa Orchards booth last week? It was a Pluerry, which is a cross between a plum and cherry, combining the sweetness of a cherry with that summer fresh plum ‘zing’. It’s much larger than a cherry and this pretty red/yellow fruit has yellow flesh the texture of a cherry more than a plum. It looks a lot like a small round plum but the taste is like a tasty plum infused with cherry flavor….delicious! Try it this week and take home a new fruit taste. They also have the first apples and pears coming too.

Wild Oregon Seafood fresh from the OR coast..always!

Wild Oregon Seafood is bringing the last of the Halibut for the season, plus Chinook, Sturgeon AND Albacore! Robin is warning it might be a shorter tuns season this summer, so get your orders in. It freezes great for later on the BBQ and/or for canning.

Tina at Leones Farm was the 2019 Favorite Farmer…voted by the POP Kids last week!

Booligh Jam entertains us this week. They play ‘organic, free range, cage-free, pasture raised’ folk, rock, blues…with a smidge of Irish….aalways a good time when they are at the Market! Gone this week is the Bratwurst Food Truck, (back next week) but we’ll have Indian , Mexican and BBQ hot food to choose from. Bring your cloth or mesh produce bags (cut out plastic). and shopping bags. Stash coolers in the car so you can linger a while, get something to eat and enjoy the music…that is after you’ve made a jar of kraut and tasted all the tomatoes!
