Market Updates
V endor News          
Jump into July at the Hollywood Farmers Market this weekend.  Dive head first into the bounty of summer with
some juicy and sweet cherry, roma or heirlooms tomatoes; look to  Winter Green Farm, Deep Roots Farm, Big B Farm  and Sweet Leaf Farm to find your favorite 'maters.  There's no shortage of fruit either, with every berry under the sun in season at Happy Harvest Farm , and enough peaches, cherries, apricots, nectaries and plums to make your head spin at Kiyokawa Orchards, Maryhill Fruit Company and  ProFarm. 

Do you have the picking itch? Good, because our farmers are bursting with beans, pickling cucumbers, cauliflower, carrots, onions and so much more all ready to take a brine bath and find their home in mason jar. Persephone Farm, Naked Acres Farm, and Sun Gold Farm are sure to have the perfect potential pickles for you. 

Scratch Meats makes their debut at market Saturday bringing handmade smoked and fresh sausage made from scratch. Using traditional, ethnic and artisan recipes and made with sustainably sourced meat, they'll have over 10 types of sausage for sample and sale.

Sterling Cookies returns after a two week hiatus, so stop by to welcome them back and pick up their one of kind macaroons, bread puddings and quiche while your at it. Dragonfly Forge, Sacred Summit, The Hummus Stop, and Thomas & Sons Distillery are also on board for the week. 

Hancock Street Painting was a success!
We did it! Over 80 volunteers came out on Sunday the 17th to help us paint a beautiful 90-foot-long mural on Hancock Street. Thanks to all the volunteers, as well as special thanks to the events' supporters: City Repair, Orchard Supply Hardware, Rose City Park Presbyterian Church, Hotlips Pizza and Stumptown Coffee Roasters. You can see more pictures of the painting in our Facebook photo album.

See you Saturday at the market!
The Hands That Feed Us - InFARMation July 26th!
Join us as we dive deep into the issue of farmworker rights. We will explore this concept through the experiences of local farmers who strive to pay a fair wage, as well as through the international lens of Fair Trade.
What can eaters and producers do in Oregon to promote fair and safe working conditions for farmworkers? This timely discussion takes place as Oregon implements a new and higher minimum wage beginning July 1.
Come out for the discussion, deepen your understanding of the issues, and learn more!
