Market Updates
Swing into September by coming down to the Hollywood Farmers Market this weekend! It's gonna be popping!

  • Joining us this week: 503 Distilling, 2 Towns Cider, Cranberry Kitchen, Fire Brew, Leikam Brewery, Westward Whiskey and NOBULL. If you need to sharpen your knives for chopping or your spade for digging, Dragonfly Forge is also here this week.

  • Off this week: Bull Run Distillery, Ken & June's Hazelnuts, Freeland Spirits, Mic's Mix, Olympia Provisions, Rise Up Remedies, Stone Barn, Sweet Briar Farms, Brandyworks, More Bees, Townshend's Distillery, and Wet Wizard. Leipold Farms is also done for the season. Thanks for all the delicious berries!

Who wants some Jimmy's? A favorite frying pepper of many, Jimmy Nardellos are a great snack or side dish if you toss them in a pan and sizzle them to perfection. Stop by and pick some up.
Pop a pluerry in your mouth! If you have never tried one, these beautiful fruits are a cross between a plum and a cherry.
Or how about a crisp lemon cucumber from Gail's Meadow? Whatever you want, we've got plenty of options.

This weekend Mary Flower will be playing blues and there will be many friendly faces. We hope to see yours there!
Due to the rainy forecast for this Sunday, we've postponed the street mural re-painting to our alternate date - next Sunday, September 15th. It should be a blast - we'll be re-beautifying the block of our farmers market, while enjoying pizza from Hotlips and (just confirmed) ice cream courtesy of Rose City Park Prebyterian Church!

If you're on Facebook, you can RSVP and invite your friends here. See you at the painting!

Red Thumb Fingerling Potatoes
Persephone Farm
Red Thumbs have strikingly-red smooth skin, and yellow flesh streaked with pink. Their flavor is delicious - a great choice for potato salads, especially combined with one of the other potato varieties Persephone grows, like Huckleberry (purple with gold flesh). Like all of Persephone Farm's produce, they're certified Organic, and are grown outside in the sun, wind and rain.

Albacore Tuna
Linda Brand Crab
Fresh albacore season is here! Linda Brand Crab offers loins or whole fish, fresh-caught off the Oregon and Washington coast. The loin steaks make a great easy summer dinner - just rub with oil, sear a minute on each side on high heat, then turn the heat off, cover the pan loosely and let it finish to desired doneness. Add some blanched summer vegetables like corn, green beans or zucchini, and you've got dinner with less than 10 minutes of cooking!

Gold Me Now Golden Ale
Leikam Brewing
This golden ale is brewed with experimental organic hops from the Oregon Hophouse Farm in Aurora, OR. It's light and smooth (5.5% ABV), with a solid balance of hops and barley. Like all of their brews, Leikam sells it in "crowlers" (a 32-oz growler-sized can, singly and in three packs. You can also find it at their new taproom on E Burnside!
