Market Updates
It's a sure sign that summer is just around the corner:  Unger Farms will be returning to market this Saturday, with loads of Hood and Albion strawberries! Of course lots of our other vendors, including Deep Roots, Happy Harvest, & Winter Green Farm  will also have strawberries this Saturday. Another sign of summer is the slow shift in produce: asparagus won't be around forever, so stock up while you can from Maryhill Orchards and Pro Farm. Sweet Leaf has just begun to harvest their new potatoes, and will have a bounty of these delicate, buttery potatoes on Saturday. Mocha Roma  is taking the week off, but Nossa Familia will be at market with their wonderful fresh-brewed coffee!

If you missed last week, you missed the return of Laurel Ridge Winery, as well as our newest vendor Naked Acres,
who is bringing sustainably-grown vegetables, preserves, and lovely goats' milk soap. This Saturday, we'll also be joined by on-call vendors  House Spirits, Pono Farms, & Rossi Farms.

See you at the market!

Featured Products
May 23, 2015
Hood Strawberries
Deep Roots Farm, Happy Harvest Farm, & Unger Farms
The long-awaited Hood strawberries are here! These little deep-red bursts of flavor are an Oregon treasure, and an ephemeral one. This year Hood season is coming on early, and may be shorter than usual, so get them while they last!

Meadowfoam Honey
Nature's Best - Oregon Honey
Meadowfoam is a low succulent-like plant grown throughout the Willammette Valley for its oil. When Nature's Best's bees polinate it, their honey takes on a unique vanilla/marshmallowy flavor. Give it a try next time you visit Nature's Best and give your tastebuds a delight.

Goat's Milk Soap
Naked Acres Farm
The newest family farm to join HFM, Naked Acres Farm is located in outer SE Portland, and offers certified Naturally Grown produce, preserves, pastured meat, and goat's milk soap! Made with milk from their farm's goats and olive & coconut oils, this soap is amazingly moisturizing. It comes in a variety of scents including rosemary, spruce cedar, anise, lavender, and forest flowers!

Mountain Bread
Tabor Bread
Looking for a tasty treat at the market, but want to avoid the sugar rush of a pastry? Try Tabor Bread's savory Mountain Bread! It's a delicious sourdough fougasse, and has a different flavor every week. Some recent versions are broccoli/cheddar/basil and roasted-fennel/olive/herb/garlic/havarti!
Tabor's breads are baked in a beautiful wood-fired oven, and are made with whole grains milled in-house.
