Market Updates
For many of us, fall is a time we begin to seek cozy, creature comforts. The market is brimming with local bounty that will warm up your home: humanly raised meat for stews, fresh baked bread, soft and hard cheeses to pair. To make preparation easier, No Mess Chef carries nourishing bone broth, and NOBULL provides premade mushroom broth starters. And don't miss out on Kiyokawa Family Orchards' fresh apple cider.

With holidays around the bend, we are excited to welcome two more vendors. Steve Mallison of Sea2spoons is back with his wooden wares. He transforms downed trees into beautifully crafted bowls and spoons. From Aloha, hails Northwest Cactus and Succulents, a small, 5th generation family business. Their unique selection of plants will add life to any home or garden.

  • Back this week: Bull Run Distillery, Dragonfly Forge, Freeland Spirits, More Bees, and NOBULL Scratch Starters.

  • Off this week: 503 Distilling, Cranberry Kitchen, Mic's Mix, Stone Barn Brandyworks, Westward Whiskey and Wet Wizard.
Fuyu persimmons are here! Crisp, smooth and sweet, they are an excellent snack and pair well with cheese. Just make sure to wait until they are completely orange before you eat them. Even a trace of green on the skin can indicate that they are not ready, and oh boy will they make you pucker.
Grab a warm drink, eat a delicious meal and enjoy Down Home Music playing live. We look forward to seeing you!
InFARMation (and Beer) next Tuesday: Increasing Healthy Food Access In Oregon
Join Friends of Family Farmers for the last of three events in their Portland InFARMation Series on ‘ Becoming an Educated Eater.’ This will be a fun and informative night where local farmers and experts will talk about how households at all income levels can stock up on local meat and pantry items for the winter. Also, hear how shopping at farmers markets or otherwise supporting local farmers is not just for high earners. You’ll bring home recipe ideas and tips for how to stretch your food dollars. Have a beer (or non-alcoholic beverage), participate in this important conversation, and walk away with more skills on how to participate in the local food economy on any budget.
