Unlike Justin Bieber’s song lyrics, we get our peaches here in Oregon!
This week we are celebrating peaches!
If you’ve been considering trying your hand at preserving peaches for the cold days of winter, now is the time. Whether you enjoy jam or canning, the market can set you up with the right variety. From varieties that are suited best for fresh eating vs baking or canning, your farmer can steer you in the right direction for the best fruit.
Make sure to stop by the info booth for preserving resources, compliments of OSU Extension Service. They make it easy to access help and information when it comes to canning safety, recipes, pressure canner calibrating and frequently asked questions.
In addition to peaches this week you can find sweet table Grapes at RJ Farms, foraged Huckleberries at Pheasant’s Eye and tender Japanese Eggplants at Coyote Ridge. Brown Bottle Farm is bringing their wildly popular Double Red Corn which boasts incredible flavor and texture. Farm D’ICI has Pickling Cucumbers and Sun Love Farm is offering loads of tender Squash varieties.
We have 68 vendors joining us this weekend and we are excited to offer our community freshly harvested produce and locally grown/made foods. In addition, our artisans are bringing handmade jewelry and garden art using upcycled products!
Find us at 2051 Kaen Road (at the corner of Beavercreek and Kaen Roads) here in Oregon City from 9-2 this Saturday.
See you at the market for warm donuts, fresh Mexican food, live music from Rogue Bluegrass and all your favorite vendors.
