Kids Activity this Saturday: Plant identification games!
Join us this Saturday for our last kids activity day of the season with Joanna Sooper of Turnip the Heat Cooking School! We'll have two great games for our "market sprouts": First, the Plant Matching Game, where kids have to match pictures of plants with the fruit or vegetable on the board. And then, the " What Part of the Plant Is This?" game, where they identify produce items as fruits, flowers, leaves, stems, seeds or roots. They'll also be able to taste an example of each plant part.  Kids activities will run from 9am to 12 noon.

Vendor News
E xpect another summer-into-fall market mash-up this Saturday at your neighborhood farmers market. The peaches are at their season's sweetest and juiciest, and are waiting you by the box full at ProFarm Orchards and Maryhill Fruit Company.  These are the last weeks to find green beans, cucumbers and berries in canning and pickling volumes as well, so don't miss your chance to stock the larder for the colder and darker months ahead.  

And for those that are over summer's heat and all the intensity of fires, smoke and haze it's brought to our region recently you can look toward fall with crisp radish roots from Naked Acres Farm, luscious bunched greens from Winter Green Farm, fantastic fennel fronds at Persephone Farm, huge heads up broccoli and cauliflower from Deep Roots Farm, and roots upon roots upon roots from Sweet Leaf Farm

Also back for this market are Cardamon Hills Trading Company, More Bees, and Thomas & Sons Distillery. 

See you Saturday at the market!
