This week we are welcoming some vendors we haven’t seen in a while…
The changing of seasons, schedules and staffing issues has taken it’s toll on our farms and vendors. We know it’s frustrating to arrive at the market, only to discover one of your favorite vendors is absent. We all appreciate your patience. This year has proven to be another trying one for small farms and businesses and it has been difficult to navigate in terms of COVID, weather related losses and lack of staff. We look forward to a measure of normalcy as time goes on. In the meantime we appreciate your continued support of the market.
That being said, we have some faces returning to the market that you may not have seen in a while! Plus, coming soon, we will have a full list of our winter season vendors for you so be on the lookout for that in the coming weeks.
Have you picked up your winter bookmark? Make sure to stop by the Information Booth because it lists all of our market dates and special events for the winter season. You won’t want to miss out on the abundant winter produce, foods and new vendors.
Our new 30.00 SNAP incentive for EBT and P-EBT recipients have our customers excited by all the wonderful foods they can buy and stock up on. If you haven’t used your card at the market, make sure you come to the Info Booth first so we can set you up with extra funding to spend. This match is in place until at least the end of the year. It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the late summer and early fall produce.
This week you will find lots of squash, tomatoes, fresh celery, delicious beet varieties that are perfect for roasting, potatoes, root veggies, spinach, fresh herbs, onions, mixed fall lettuces, figs, pears, apples, cauliflower and peppers! The list goes on but this gives you an idea of the abundant produce currently available.
For our bread enthusiasts, Grano and Fat Dutch are taking a well deserved break this Saturday. However, La Petite Provence is bringing extra bread and delicious pastries!
With our cooler temperatures how about some homemade chili from Queen Chili? Liz makes all of her chili varieties from scratch and sources ALL of her ingredients from local farms and ranches. She’s designed flavors for all palates and offers a vegan option as well. Consider picking some up to reheat for weekday lunches. It’s a perfect go to for a healthy, satisfying lunch.
Read on for our list of returning vendors this week plus those who are taking the week off. We have warm donuts by Divine Mini Donuts, Mexican food from Sara’s Tamales, live music by Steve Hale and plenty more waiting for you at the market.
Find us at 2051 Kaen Rd (corner of Kaen and Beavercreek Rd) here in Oregon City from 9-2 this Saturday.
See you at the market!
