Mark Your Calendars!

By 2 March 2023

It may be cold now, but the market is in full planning mode for spring and summer season!

It’s hard to imagine a market bursting with fresh berries, stone fruits, live music and tomatoes but for farmers markets, planning begins in the cold dark days of winter. As we look forward to spring, our thoughts turn towards those clear blue skies and warm weather.

However, as we plan, we’re grateful to be at the market every other week with farm direct foods! While March is often known as a produce gap, we still have farms bringing winter produce and storage crops, not to mention all of our vendors supplying locally made foods. This week Brown Bottle Farm will be here with a double booth. On the menu? Lots of salad greens, pantry items, and fresh mushrooms.  Also, their Shiitake Mushroom Log Class still has some openings so people can sign up for that too!

This spring and summer we’re excited for the return of many programs that went dormant during the COVID days. Now that we’ve emerged on the other side, it’s time to welcome back some exciting activities. Our programs have been refreshed and updated and are ready to be enjoyed by our community.

This year we’re welcoming lots of new music and bands beginning in May. Our Summer Music Series promises a wide genre of musical stylings and creative expression in the musical arts. We will be releasing a list of our scheduled performers as we get closer to April.

In addition to your favorite vendors, the market is excited to welcome new ones as well. It’s always wonderful to have a variety of local small food businesses and farms sharing their bounty with us.

Let’s start off with a few events you will want to mark on your calendar now! Of course, we will have plenty of reminders as we move closer to the season. Read on for the details and who is attending the market this week!

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday, March 4th from 10-2! Come out and support local growers and makers!

See you soon.

Our annual Seed Swap returns this year on March 18th! Thanks to our sponsors at OSU Master Gardeners, Territorial Seeds, Herman’s Seeds and OSU Extension we will have seeds available for swapping and sharing. Want to trade some of your own for another variety? Bring your seeds to share and pick up some new. That’s the fun of it!
A fun event, this is a great time to get expert planting advice from Master Gardeners, who are truly masters of all thing’s dirt and planting!
Have some pots and tools? Bring those to swap out as well. Please leave plants at home as this is for seeds and supplies only.
Bring your planting friends, grab coffee and make a morning of it.  Join us from 10-2 at our market on March 18th. It’s going to be fun way to plan for spring and summer planting!
Our Power of Produce Club is planning for summer!

Bring your kids ages 5-12 to the market on April 15th and 29th to register for our summer program. POP activities kick off on May 6th this year. Get your POP passport plus a free veggie tattoo!

Each week, in partnership with OnPoint Credit UnionClackamas Soil and Water Conservation District and OSU Extension, we will host interactive activities for kids to learn about local food systems, how food grows and nutrition education through a variety of activities, including flour grinding, seed planting, cider pressing, veggie peeling, jam making and veggie bingo.

POP kids will have the opportunity to earn 3.00 in market tokens to spend on fresh fruit, vegetables and veggie plant starts in the market. It’s just another reason to bring your kiddos to the market!

Stay tuned for ways to get involved and how to volunteer!

Speaking of POP Club, we have an exciting announcement! Join us July 8th for a 45-minute performance (10-10:45) from Red Yarn!

Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) is a Texas-born, Oregon-based family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy shows for all ages. With his engaging performances, lush folk-rock recordings, and playful music videos, this red-bearded bard reinvigorates American folklore for younger generations.

With traditional and original songs that apply an indie aesthetic to folk, rockabilly, country and blues, Red Yarn’s sound is both rooted and modern. Whether performing solo, with his wife and singing partner Jessie, with collaborators, or with a full band, Red Yarn’s shows are a raucous, inclusive celebration of the multicultural musical heritage of the USA. As Red rambles through the landscapes of American folklore, from the Deep Woods to the Old Barn, he introduces his “critter” friends – lovable, handmade puppets – along the way.
