Late Summer Harvest

By 8 September 2022
It’s hard to believe we’re heading into the middle of September! School has started for many, and schedules are migrating back to a routine after the flurry of summer activities.
Through it all, the market remains consistent, and we hope you will continue to make Saturday mornings part of your weekend schedule. We’re grateful to be here each week with locally grown and made foods, artisan goods and fresh groceries.
We eat with the seasons and right now, the variety is outstanding. We continue to have juicy ripe tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers of all sorts, stone fruits, fresh herbs, greens, fall berries and root veggies. Celery is making an appearance thanks to Brown Bottle Farm and garlic is prolific right now.

Welcome back to some returning vendors this week!

We know you’ve been missing our friends, Ed and Diana, of Divine Mini Donuts. They will be returning in October, just in time for warm fall donuts!

This week we’re also welcoming a new and emerging small farm who will ‘pop up’ with the market now and then. Heidi Gorton-Rigazzi of Back Four Farm tends land right here in Oregon City and grows a variety of produce such as eggplant and fresh basil, for starters.
She protects the soil’s health by adopting regenerative farming practices to increase the concentration of organic matter in soil, promote biodiversity and increase resistance to plant pests and diseases. Heidi is excited to be here and meet our wonderful customers and fellow vendors so make sure to stop by and welcome her on Saturday.

Make sure to check the rest of our newsletter for attending vendors and an inspiring recipe centered around summer veggies. Plus, we have a vendor highlight for you, Sao Noi Chili Oils!

You can find us this Saturday from 9-2 at 2051 Kaen Road (corner of Kaen and Beavercreek Roads) here in Oregon City.

We look forward to seeing you!

With the bounty of corn, tomatoes and cucumbers right now, it’s always a delight to discover a new dish celebrating the flavors of late summer.
We love this simple recipe from The New York Time Cooking created by Martha Shulman. Highly versatile, you can serve this refreshing mixture as a salad, as a topping for whole grains or as a salsa with grilled fish or chicken.

Tomato, Cucumber, and Corn Salad

Ingredients

Yield: 6 servings

  • 1 to 1¼ pounds ripe tomatoes, cut in small dice
  • ½ European cucumber, 2 Persian cucumbers or 1 regular cucumber, peeled if waxy, seeded if the seeds are large, and cut in small dice
  • 2 ears corn, steamed for 4 minutes and kernels removed from the cob
  • 1 to 2 serranos or jalapeño pepper, minced (seeded for a milder salad)
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice or lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Optional: 1 ounce feta, crumbled (about ¼ cup)

Preparation

Mix together all of the ingredients. Let sit in or out of the refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving, then toss again.

VENDOR HIGHLIGHT – Sao Noi!

Sao Noi, a women owned chili oil company, create inspiring SE Asian chili oils, using their mothers’ recipe. Sao-Noi literally translates to ‘little girl’ in Laotian inspired by mom and founder, Marni, who is the youngest of 8 siblings.

The exotic flavors in their sauces celebrate Molly and Lisa’s (sisters) SE Asian roots. Today they’re handcrafted in small batches. In addition to Sao-Noi’s chili oils, you can also enjoy their Peanut Sauce (highly recommend to pair with Bean Bar’s Tofu) compliments of their father’s recipe and their newest addition, Beef Jerky, in flavors such as Lemongrass and Ginger.

Visit Molly on Saturday for recipes to inspire you!

You may have noticed some of our vendors missing, causing some gaps in the market. This is due to delayed crops, staffing issues, product availability and illness. We apologize for the inconvenience but appreciate your patience and continued support of our vendors and market as we navigate through another challenging year
