Market Updates
-----------------
With the crisp morning air, sunny afternoons, and the leaves crunching beneath our boots, it's been a beautiful autumn week here in Portland. Savor everything amazing about the fall season by stopping by market this Saturday to grab fresh chestnuts, tender greens, sweet tomatoes, crisp peppers, and colorful winter squash.
Mid-fall has arrived and that means so have the fresh roasted chestnuts from Bill at Nature's Wild Harvest. Head to the back row of market and warm your hands and heart with a bag - he'll be roasting them onsite as well as selling them raw.

Though market crowds are starting to thin as we get later in the season, please continue to observe our COVID guidelines, and - if at all possible - please send only one person from your household to shop. Sending only one person shortens the line to get in, and allows more households to shop at the market.
oregon trail tokens
This week USDA's Food and Nutrition Service announced that they are temporarily allowing purchase of hot/ready-to-eat food using SNAP benefits through November 20th, 2020 in several Oregon counties including Multnomah. This special rule is due to the power outages and displacement caused by wildfires.

So for the next month, SNAP shoppers can now use the $1 SNAP tokens to purchase hot food from our vendors including Nourishment, Alleamin and Montiel's Cocina!

Remember that we are now operating on our fall/winter hours, opening at 9am. We will continue to close at 1pm. (Note: this change means that we no longer have a vulnerable population shopping hour. The full 4 hours of the market will be open for general shopping.)
Back this week: Alleamin

Off this week: 503 Distilling, East Fork Cultivars, Freeland Spirits, No Mess Chef, Stone Barn Brandyworks, The Fermentista, Westward Whiskey

Done for the season: Ken & June's Hazelnuts, Maryhill Fruit Company, Sweet Briar Farms

Thank you for your continued support of the farmers market during this time! Sending just one member from your household and observing our safety guidelines is what supports us to stay safe and stay open. Note that face shields may not be used as a substitute for face coverings/masks.
Recipe: Curried Kabocha Squash Soup
---------------
INGREDIENTS
1 medium sized kabocha squash, peeled, seeded and cut into ¾ inch cubes 
1 tbsp curry powder
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp olive oil
2 large shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 tsp sea salt 
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
½ cup heavy cream (or coconut milk)

PREPARATION
1. In a medium sized stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
2. Add the chopped shallots, sliced garlic and a generous pinch of salt and cook over medium high heat, stirring, until the shallots are just starting to brown, about 3 minutes. 
3. Add the squash cubes, curry powder, and cinnamon and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. 
4. Add the chicken stock and bring the soup to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the squash is very tender, about 20-25 minutes.
5. Use an immersion blender or stand blender to purée the soup and return it to the pot.
6. Add the cream or coconut milk and stir until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
7. Garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley. You can also top this soup with creme fraiche, sour cream, or spiced/candied nuts.
