Market Updates
-----------------
One of the beautiful things about shopping at the farmers market is the unending possibility to discover new foods. Our growers know that resiliency lies in diversity, and they continually seek varietals with unique qualities, working in concert with their land: disease resistance, crisp texture, early bearing, late bearing, and the list goes on. As well, food entrepreneurs work collaboratively to make the distinct flavors of our region shine.

This weekend, take a step into the unknown. Try a product you have never tried before. Learning to cook with unique items allows you to enjoy a diverse diet from what is locally available year-round. What better way could there be to support your local community and your health?

This weekend find everything from agretti and celtuce at Stoneboat Farm, to fresh garbanzos at Sun Gold Farm, purple and yellow tomatillos from Gales Meadow Farm, Dragone Lingerie beans from Flying Coyote Farm, bietola from Sweet Leaf Organic Farm, and yak meat from Pine Mountain Ranch. Flavors from around the world will be waiting for you this weekend at the farmers market. What food adventure will you embark upon?
Back this week: 503 Distilling, Dragonfly Forge, Nature's Best Oregon Honey, and Orange and Blossom.

Off this week: East Fork Cultivars, Ken and June's Hazelnuts, No Mess Chef, Sacred Summit Herbal Elixirs and Chocolate, Freeland Spirits, Roundhouse Foods, The Fermentista, and Westward Whiskey.

Off for the season: Wildland Kombucha will be off for the rest of the season as they will be busy welcoming a new member into the family. Good luck!

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!
Power of Produce (POP) Club activity sheets!
-------------
Along with many of the changes this season, we've missed offering weekly kids activities as part of our Power of Produce (POP) Club program. Now, for those who are looking for fun and educational activities to do with their kids, we'll be offering a monthly series of kids activity sheets!

This month's activity is Farmers Market Food Critic, and is geared toward kids aged kindergarten through 5th grade. You can pick it up this Saturday at the community board next to the information booth, or print it out yourself from here.
Recipe of the Week: Gapacho
Don't let the summer go by without making gazpacho at least once! This is just one recipe, of course there are many variants. Shredded crabmeat (added after pureeing) is a popular addition.

2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped roughly
1 small (1/2 lb) cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 medium red bell pepper, cored
1/2 small red onion, peeled
2 small garlic cloves (or 1 large clove), peeled
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 thick slice of white bread, crust cut off

optional garnishes: homemade croutons, chopped fresh herbs, a drizzle of olive oil, or any leftover chopped gazpacho ingredients

Puree all ingredients except bread in blender/food processor (or with immersion blender in large pot). Put the bread slice in the blender and let it soak for 5 minutes. Then puree it in. Chill and serve.

Featured Products
August 29, 2020
Roma Tomatoes
Deep Roots Farm
Roma tomatoes are the best variety for canning and making sauce, as they are meatier and less juicy than other varieties. And, unlike most Roma tomatoes you get in the grocery stores that are picked green, Deep Roots Farm lets them ripen on the vine so they have that delicious tomato flavor! This week Deep Roots has them for $5 a quart or $30 for a 25lb case.

Albacore Tuna
Linda Brand Crab
Fresh albacore season is here! Linda Brand Crab offers loins or whole fish, fresh-caught off the Oregon and Washington coast. The loin steaks make a great easy summer dinner - just rub with oil, sear a minute on each side on high heat, then turn the heat off, cover the pan loosely and let it finish to desired doneness. Add some blanched summer vegetables like corn, green beans or zucchini, and you've got dinner with less than 10 minutes of cooking!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
The Hummus Stop
The Hummus Stop, started by two brothers from Tunisia, makes 16 different varieties of hummus, from the traditional to Americas-inspired flavors like cilantro jalapeño. One of the most popular is roasted red pepper. Enjoyed with Hummus Stop's pita bread or chips, or as a dip for fresh market veggies, it will have you asking, what is the Hummus Stop's secret?
