Market Updates
We invite you once again to join us this Saturday at the Hollywood Farmers Market for a festive, fresh, and fun weekend adventure. Persephone Farm returns after two months away for transplanting and preparing for summer market season, and they look forward to seeing you with racks of beautiful lettuces, fresh herbs, summer squashes and much more. Apricots are in at ProFarm Produce, Maryhill Fruit Company and Pablo Munoz Farms so you can ease into stone fruit season. Of course you can also find berries, and depending on what time you arrive may determine which ones you find. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, logan berries, and maybe even blackberries. Early shoppers may also get their hands on those sweet droplets of summer we've all been waiting for, cherry tomatoes! Check Deep Roots Farm first thing.
The newest vendor to join our ranks debuts tomorrow, so stop by Rose City Refillery and sample their small batch, zero waste, locally made nut milk blend. They use fellow market farmer Ken & June's Hazelnuts in their special dairy/soy free blend and sell it in classic glass milk bottles intended for returning for reuse. We also have 503 Distilling, Cranberry Kitchen, Dragonfly Forge, Fire Brew, Leikam Brewing, NOBULL Specialty Foods, and Townshend's Distillery joining us this week.

Have any cook books, gardening guides, or food related magazine piling up at home? You can donate them the HFM Community Library. Now that the steady rain has started to give way to sunshine, our community library is out at market every week. Head toward the center of market between Nourishment and our music tent to find the library. There you may leave or take a variety of cookbooks, food magazines, and nutrition guides. The selection available changes week to week, so it's always worth taking a glance to see if there's something there for you.

We look forward to seeing you at the market!
Senior Appreciation Day is July 13th!

POP Club continues!
Our POP (Power of Produce) Club continues this Saturday - all summer long we'll be offering free activities for kids aged 5 to 12! This week's activity is Eating the Rainbow . Kids will be able to try foods that cover every color of the rainbow, and decide on their favorite.

The POP Club is made possible by our neighborhood sponsors, and this week's sponsor is The Wiggle Room!
Recipes of the Week: Three easy sides/appetizers for your BBQ
Arugula and Walnut Pesto Crostini 
Pesto on toasted bread is always a great app at a BBQ! You can even toast the bread on the grill - just brush the slices with olive oil and place on a hot grill for about a minute. 

Makes 20 crostini 
1/2 lb arugula 
3 cups walnuts, roughly chopped 
1 cup grated Parmesan 
1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped garlic 
salt and pepper 
olive oil 
1 baguette (or other bread), toasted 

In a large bowl, mix the arugula with chopped walnuts, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper. Process in two batches in a food processor, adding olive oil until the pesto is the right consistency (thick enough to spread). Smear onto hot crunchy slices of toasted bread. 

Recipe from Polpo: A Venetian Cookbook of Sorts 

Grated Cucumber Salad with Oregano 

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and grated 
1 tbsp sugar 
2 tbsp lemon juice or cider vinegar 
1 tbsp fresh oregano (chopped), or 1 tsp dried oregano 
a handful of pitted cured black olives 

Wrap the grated cucumber in a kitchen towel or paper towel and squeeze to remove excess moisture. Combine the sugar, lemon juice and salt in a serving dish. Add the cucumber and oregano and toss. Mix well with two forks, then cover and chill for at least 30 minutes. Decorate with olives just before serving.

Roasted Beet Salad with Cinnamon
Make this one in advance, as the beets take a couple hours to slow-roast, caramelizing their natural sweetness.

1 lb beets (3 or 4 medium-sized beets)
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
large pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Trim beets, cutting off the tops. Toss them with the salt and tightly wrap them (with the salt) in foil or parchment paper. Roast in a shallow baking dish for 2 hours. To check for tenderness, open one end of the packet and test a beet with the tip of a knife to see if the flesh has softened. Let the beets cool.

Peel the beets, cut into bite-sized pieces, and put in a bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients, pout over the beets, and let marinate for 1 hour before serving. Serve at room temperature.

"Pick Your Six" Mixed Berry Flats
Liepold Farms
Liepold Farms was a founding vendor at Hollywood Farmers Market in 1997, and they started encouraging shoppers to "pick their six" shortly after - i.e. choose six pints of different berries in a half-flat. This Saturday, they'll have strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, as well as some stone fruit like cherries and apricots. Come early for the best choice!

Cranberry Kitchen
Try Cranberry Kitchen's "Crannies", and you'll taste something fundamentally different from a standard dried cranberry that you might find at the grocery store. They're dried whole, keeping all the flavor and nutrients of the fruit - in contrast to industrial dried cranberries which are typically juiced first, and then have sugar, apple juice or other additives injected back in to simulate cranberry flavor. Stop by the Cranberry Kitchen booth this Saturday to try them and learn more! 

Cranberry Hazelnut Butter
Bliss Nut Butters
You can't get more "Pacific Northwest" than this nut butter, made with local hazelnuts and cranberries, and sweetened with just a touch of raw honey!
