Market Updates
Kids Activity this Saturday!
This Saturday, our series of summer kids activities continues, with Beet Juice Painting! An introduction to the wonders of this seemingly ugly and dirty vegetable. Did you know you can paint beautiful pictures with beet juice? Activity will run from 9am to 12 noon.

Last day for free bike repairs!
Got bicycle troubles? Bring your bike to the farmers market this Saturday - it will be the last day of the season for our free bike repairman Ulysses at Dear Bike!

Vendor News
It's National Farmers  Market Week , and that means farmers markets across the country are celebrating the regional
bounty, local economy and access to great food that we each bring to our communities. Come to the Information Booth or Kids Activity Booth and get your "I Love Farmers Markets" temporary tattoo and show your pride. We'll also have FREE Face Painting with Crista down on Hancock Street, so you can leave decorated in the latest market designs. 

For this Saturday there will be 55 different vendors representing nearly every region in Oregon and southwest Washington. Whether you love our Mt. Hood orchards, Willamette Valley vegetable and berry growers, or the artisan and craft food and beverage makers across the Portland/Vancouver metro area, you're sure to find the right flavors for your taste buds. 

Back this week to cool you down in the this hot summer heat we've been having are Gelato Maestro, Thomas & Sons Distillery, More Bees and Fire Brew.  You can find a full list of vendors expected Saturday on the right. 

See you Saturday at the market!

Thank you to Portland Clinic!
As you may know, our Double Up Food Bucks program continues this season, thanks to the support of our sponsors. We'd like to thank this week's sponsor, The Portland Clinic! Their generous donation will make it possible for 50 families to afford fresh local produce from their neighborhood farmers market. Thanks!
