News and Updates


We’re s-PEACH-less!

By 3 August 2023


On Saturday, August 19th our market lot is getting repaved! For one market day we will operate at nearby “N” Lot which is located directly up Beavercreek Road approx. 1 block away from our current site. We will have maps available at the market starting this Saturday and, on the 19th, we plan to have volunteers and signs to help direct you to our temporary space. Our market will operate as usual, and we will be happy to help you locate vendors. We appreciate your patience during this one-week transition!

This Saturday we’re excited to welcome Chillz Organics to the market. Daniela Walker was tired of giving her children frozen popsicles loaded with sugar, dyes and preservatives for her kid’s summer snacks. Instead, she decided to make some of her own using fresh locally grown fruit. Her kids loved them which inspired her to sell at farmers markets. This week Chillz will offer shaved ice featuring fresh fruits – a great treat for a hot day.

This week we’re talking about peaches! Who doesn’t love a juicy peach, the kind you eat while standing over the kitchen sink! The market is loaded with this delicious stone fruit, but did you know about the different varieties and why some peach pits pop out while others cling to the fruit? Read on to find out.

Join us this Saturday from 9am-2pm at 2051 Kaen Road (corner of Kaen and Beavercreek Roads) in Oregon City.

See you at the market!

There are plenty of peach varieties in Oregon. Some include donut peaches (pictured above) which have a flattened appearance and a white flesh. They’re a delicious snacking peach but not a preserving peach due to their higher pH level.Oregon varieties fall into two general types: freestone (flesh readily separates from the pit) and clingstone (flesh clings tightly to the pit).   Source: OSU Extension
Most people prefer to preserve freestone varieties because they’re much easier to prepare, especially when prepping for pies, desserts and other dishes.

Good varieties for canning include Veteran, Early Elberta, Elberta, Rochester, Hale, Alamar, Redglobe, Redhaven, and Sun Crest.

Now is the time to bulk buy Oregon peaches! The season is fast and furious. Thanks to OSU Extension, we have wonderful resources and recipes for preserving. Check out their link for more helpful information and plan on shopping from our produce farms this Saturday. Preserving Peaches (SP 50-444) | OSU Extension Service (

Peaches are so versatile in both sweet and savory dishes alike. A fun method to bring out their flavor is simply grilling them. The heat pulls all the juices and caramelizes the natural sugars. Serve it over some of Lady Lane’s vanilla ice cream and you have a memorable dessert.

Simplest Grilled Peaches
4-6 peaches
Olive oil

Heat a gas grill to medium. If you’re using a charcoal grill, wait until the fire has died down to medium to low heat.

Cut the peaches along their seams, all the way around, and twist their halves off their pits. Brush the cut sides of the peaches with olive oil and grill, cut side down, until the fruit has developed grill marks and started to soften, about 4-5 minutes.

Brush the tops with oil, turn over and move to the side of the grill to continue cooking over indirect heat., another 4-5 min. You can add flavor by brushing them with maple syrup, butter, brown sugar or even bourbon! But if they’re perfect peaches, they shouldn’t need anything at all.

Before COVID the Power of Produce Club enjoyed a yearly activity with great enthusiasm. We’re happy to share its return!

This Saturday POP kiddos will have the opportunity to grind their own wheatberries into flour. We will also be cooking up some pancakes to share just one of the ways in which flour is used. This activity will be from 9-1 only and while supplies last. (CONTAINS GLUTEN)

As a reminder, kids ages 5-12 can join our Power of Produce Club for free by filling out their own “Healthy Passport” and receiving tokens to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables in the market. Come join the fun!
