Customer "Dot Survey" this Saturday!
----------------------
the dot survey This Saturday at the market is our annual Customer Dot Survey! This is our chance to learn a little more about you and for you to tell us what you think about the market. And it all happens with stickers! Please make sure to fill out the survey when you come to the market this Saturday; it only takes a couple minutes and your feedback is so valuable to us. We will be set up with a tent in the middle of Hancock Street, near the seating area.

Vendor News
----------------------
The late summer run up to fall at the farmers market continues to be sunny, bountiful and full of vendors of you to shop from and enjoy. We have nearly 60 farmers, foragers, ranchers, and food makers preparing for a big date at market, and maybe one of our last warm, sun filled and bright all day long.

Make sure to stop by
our  orchards growers stands ( KiyokawaFamily Orchards, Maryhill Fruit Company, and ProFarm Orchards ) because now is the time of year where late season plums, mid season apples and early season pears all show up and disappear within a few short hours. With reports of a lower yielding apple crop this year, favorite varieties like Honeycrisp, Mountain Rose, and Gravenstein will have a shorter market seasons than usual. 

It's the last week at market (until the spring) for our neighborhood and resident brewery, Leikam Brewing. Stop by their stall one last time to pick up some crowlers, join the Community Supported Brewery, or just say farewell to Sonia, Theo and brewery boys until next year. 

Also joining us for market this week are 2 Towns Ciderhouse, Dragonfly Forge, Gelato Maestro, Ken & June's Hazelnuts, Portland Bitters Project, and Stone Barn Brandyworks.

See you Saturday at the market!
