Market Updates
-----------------
We are so grateful for the rain and the accompanying improvement in air quality, and are happy to announce that we will be open tomorrow, September 19th!

Some of our vendors are still dealing with smoke and property damage and will not be there, but there will be plenty of fresh produce and food.
The brightest spot of this past two weeks has been seeing how so many farmers, ranchers and community members came together to help each other during a time of great need. In such a difficult time, many of us are feeling helpless, but there is still a great amount of need and many ways to help. See the below section for ways you can donate to help farmers and farmworkers who have been impacted by these devastating wildfires.

Of course, one of the best ways to support local farms is to shop at the farmers market this Saturday! This last two weeks has been incredibly hard on farmers, and everybody has lost income due to the fires and smoke. They'll be counting on you to come out and reload your crisper drawers, fruit bowls and pantry shelves!

It may not feel like it outside, but it's still summer, and tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers will still be available in abundance. Fall crops like winter squash, apples and pears are also making a larger appearance each week.

Below is the most current list of who is off this week, but please note this may be subject to also minute changes.
Back this week: Freeland Spirits, Ken and June's Hazelnuts, No Mess Chef, Roundhouse Foods, and The Fermentista.

Off this week: 503 Distilling, Bliss Nut Butters, Deep Roots Farm, East Fork Cultivars, Freeland Spirits, Laurel Ridge Winery, Maryhill Fruit Company, Naked Acres, Persesphone Farm, and Westward Whiskey.

It seems unlikely at this point, but in the event that air quality degrades tomorrow morning, we would close the market early. Otherwise, we plan to be open our usual hours, 8am to 1pm (8 to 9 reserved for vulnerable populations).

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.

On your way out, make sure to pick up your favorite to-go breakfast or lunch items whether it be sambusas, breakfast burritos, tamales, crepes, noodle soups or pastries. We look forward to seeing you from afar at the market this weekend!

Recipe of the Week: Farmhouse Tomato Soup
---------------
from Persephone Farm

light cooking oil
3/4 lb, shallots, peeled and sliced thin
one large bulb fennel, cored, quartered, and sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon tarragon
1/2 teaspoon thyme
5 lbs. slicing tomatoes, roughly chopped(Feel like doubling the recipe for company or leftovers? Save on 10 lbs. slicing tomatoes at $16.00)
1/2 lb. potatoes, boiled and mashed with a dab of butter
3 eggs, beaten well
salt to taste

Warm the oil in a heavy sauce pot and saute shallots at medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent. Add the fennel, tarragon, and thyme and saute several minutes more, stirring occasionally, until the fennel is quite soft.

Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for twenty minutes or so, until they have simmered to a mostly liquid state. Add mashed potatoes.

At this point you can blend the soup if you love a smooth texture. If you like chunky home-style, you can run a hand-powered egg beater through the soup. Next, add beaten eggs while stirring constantly (the potatoes and eggs thicken and flavor the soup, and add an interesting egg-drop effect as well.).

Add salt to taste and enjoy. Serves 3.
Face Masks Required!

Face coverings/masks are required for Hollywood Farmers Market shoppers.
We are very grateful for you all continuing to wear masks to protect our vendors, staff and each other! We have a small number of disposable masks available at the entrance for shoppers who do not arrive with a mask, but please bring your own if you are able to. Thank you for keeping the Hollywood Farmers Market safe!

Featured Products
September 19, 2020
Melons
Stoneboat Farm
Stoneboat Farm grows a huge variety of melons, including well-known classics like cantaloupe and golden honeydew. If you're feeling more adventurous, try some of the lesser-known gems like Sun Jewel, a "very crispy" Korean melon with floral notes, or Piel de Sapo, with a green and yellow frog-skin pattern and an almost lime-like touch of tart flavor.

American Single Malt Whiskey
Westward Whiskey
This American single malt is a culmination of Christian Krogstad's lifelong quest to produce a whiskey that embodies the spirit of the Pacific Northwest while drawing inspiration from Oregon's deeply-rooted brewing culture. Made from malted barley grown in the Pacific Northwest, its flavor is robust and fruity, with creamy vanilla and brown sugar notes.

Organic Yakisoba Stir-Fry Noodles
Umi Organic
Lola of Umi Organic has been making and selling ramen noodles at the market for years, and this year she has a new noodle - yakisoba! Yakisoba is a classic Japanese stir-fry noodle. Made with whole grain organic durum and Edison flour from Camas Country Mill in Junction City, Oregon, Umi Organic’s yakisoba has great chewiness and flavor.

Chili Oil
Hot Mama Salsa
You may already know Hot Mama's salsas, but have you tried their amazing chili oils? The Chili de Arbol oil is made with Arbol peppers (grown on Sauvie Island), garlic, sesame seeds and peanut oil. Featured in Willamette Week's Best of Portland an "essential hot sauce for your pantry", it is great for any fans of heat! The Guajillo oil is less hot, with a flavor that's sweet and slightly smoky. And the "smoky coffee" chili oil has a rich, earthy flavor, similar to mole sauce.
