The Benefits of Sourdough

By 31 January 2024

The market returns this Saturday!

We are so thrilled to be emerging from our weeks of hibernation to shop for fresh food in the sunshine!
The forecast for market day looks beautiful. What better way to kick off a weekend?

We are welcoming 60 vendors this Saturday and we hope you will make plans to shop locally and support our farmers. The recent storm continues to affect them in terms of repairs and loss of revenue. Did you know that the majority of our farms reside in Clackamas County?

Make sure to check out our link below for which vendors will be in attendance. Get your shopping bags ready, our vendors are eager to serve you!

Plus, if you have a verified Oregon City address, we can give an ADDITIONAL 20.00 to use on EBT approved foods, all thanks to our Metro Grant funded by Oregon City and the Farmers Market Fund!
The Benefits of Sourdough

The onset of COVID drove many folks into their homes with a sudden amount of time on their hands. The art of creating a sourdough starter and baking one’s own bread began to rise (no pun intended) substantially.

And while it was fun at the time, it became difficult to manage a starter and keep a baking schedule, despite craving that tangy flavor and chewy crumb.


There are surprising benefits to eating sourdough bread! 

  • Richer in nutrients.
  • Less likely to spike blood pressure.
  • Less gluten
  • Contains a higher level of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals.
  • Easier to digest.
  • Beneficial to gut health, given its lactic acid bacteria, thanks to its fermentation process.

And according to Healthline magazine, “Buying sourdough bread from an artisan baker at farmers markets increases the likelihood of it being “true” sourdough bread” vs conventional grocery store styles made with enhanced starters and processed flours.

So, if you find yourself in need of bread but too busy to make your own, we have you covered. Each Saturday Fokattia Artisanal Sourdough is here! Using their own naturally leavened sourdough starter, freshly milled local flours and hearty seeds and grains, Fokattia offers a huge variety of artisan breads to choose from.

Fokattia works all week developing excellent flavor profiles, textures and crusts. Each loaf is individually crafted and prepared. No mass production here. Their bread is baked off in the wee hours prior to market’s opening bell so it’s incredibly fresh.

Grab an extra loaf to stick in the freezer. Sourdough bread freezes beautifully.

The cold weather takes its toll on our skin and nourishing it now prevents damage later on. Landia Skincare is back this Saturday with an array of the best organic, cruelty free skin care products. Natural scents, minimal processing and real ingredients go into every bottle. If you haven’t tried the Sunny Day and Night cream, it is a gamechanger for facial health. Chat with Bill and Kathy for the healthiest skin care routine recommendations.
