Market Updates

Hot weather is predicted for this Saturday, but don't let that keep you away from the market! We'll have plenty of ways to stay cool, from delicious ice cream cones to refreshing kombucha by the growler, and plenty of sausage and sweet corn to take home to grill for dinner. We're even setting up our market misting station, which is perfect for cooling parched market-goers.

 

Daily vendors Ancient Heritage, Dancing Light Ranch, New Deal Distillery, and Olympic Provisions will be at market this Saturday. Don't forget to bring your knives and tools for Dragonfly Forge to sharpen! We're already looking forward to next week, when Kimberly Farms will join us with lots of summer produce, and Kiyokawa Farm will return, bearing luscious summer fruit.


This Saturday, our monthly series of kids' cooking demos continues. This month's theme: peas and carrots! Joanna Sooper of Turnip the Heat Cooking School will be leading our market sprouts in making a fresh pea "pate" and a carrot-raisin salad. Demos will run from 9:30 to noon. 

 

Looking forward, a week from Saturday (July 19th) is our second annual Senior Day! Many of our vendors will be offering discounts to seniors (65+); watch this space for a full list next week. Additionally, we'll have a market tour starting at 10am, leaving from the information booth at 44th and Hancock, and music from the Rose City Banjoliers.

 

See you at the market!
Hollywood Farmers Market looking for new board members!

Do you love the Hollywood Farmers Market? Have you recently discovered the excellent weekday Lloyd Farmers Market? Are you looking for a way to get more involved in your community? Well, we have a great opportunity for you!


The Hollywood Farmers Market is now accepting applications to join its Board of Directors in January 2015! Board membership is a terrific opportunity for volunteers, vendors and market lovers to become involved with this successful nonprofit farmers market. The Board welcomes applications from individuals enthusiastic about the Market, and especially those with backgrounds in the areas of community outreach, agriculture, communications, human resources, accounting/financial planning, and marketing.

 

The Board is comprised of up to fifteen members, including a handful of seats which will be vacated at the end of this year. Board members serve a three year term and oversee the Hollywood and Lloyd Farmers Markets, which are both held year round. The Board's primary responsibility is governance of the Markets. In addition, Board members will participate on a variety of committees where they can creatively contribute to the market's weekly activities as well as influence the organization's future. Members attend board meetings held on the third Wednesday evening of every month and also attend one or more committee meetings. An annual Board retreat is held every January, and a vendor dinner and harvest festival are hosted by the Board throughout the year.


The deadline for applications is Saturday, September 19th. The Board will invite qualified candidates to an interview at the October 15th board meeting, and elections will take place that evening. New members will be seated effective January 1, 2015. 

 

The application is available on our website here.

Any questions about the recruitment process may be directed to Suzanne Briggs at recruitment@hollywoodfarmersmarket.org.

Featured Products

Dried Beans
Sun Gold Farm
Many people don't know that dried beans can be grown in Oregon, but Sun Gold Farm is among the many farms in the area growing and selling them. They currently have white, red, and pinto beans available year-round - great for those of you who want to get more of your protein from locally-grown sources!
 
Chorizo Navarre
Olympic Provisions
All of Olympic Provisions' chorizos are delicious, but for those lovers of spice, the Chorizo Navarre is the one! Flavored with sweet paprika, garlic, and cayenne, the spicing adds a kick, without overwhelming the flavor of the pork. 
 
New Potatoes
Gales Meadow Farm
The Fourth of July has passed, but it's never too late to enjoy some red, white, and blue potatoes from Gales Meadow Farm!
 
Hazelnuts
Ken & June's Hazelnuts / Melcher Family Farm
A true Oregon staple - hazelnuts. Get your roasted and salted or unsalted nuts here. They're great toasted on salads, eaten with fruit and cheese or used to make pie crusts. This can be a delicious substitute in gluten free recipes.
