August 26 2008 Market
I can’t believe it’s the last week of August. This summer just seemed to disappear. The sun finally came out at the end of June and now we’re a week away from the first day of school.
Speaking of disappearing acts, blueberries, corn and raspberries have been disapearing acts at the market. All three items sold out quickly last week. Greenville Farms will be back with corn as well as blueberries, summer squash, green beans and zucchini. Unger Farms will be bringing blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. Packer Orchards will have peaches and nectarines. Sulina of Sulina and Bay’s Farm will be bringing her usual great selection of lettuce, fenugreek, carrots, cabbage, radishes, snow peas, zucchini and fresh herbs plus many varieties of green beans. The french bean and the long bean are my favorites. Springwater Farm will have a variety of wild and cultivated mushrooms for sale including maitake, shiitake, lion’s mane (or monkey’s head), nameko and morels. Early chantarelles will be available and are full of flavor right now. Fresh and Local, Rogue Creamery, Russell’s Bread and Xiong Farmer are all back with flowers, cheeses, breads, sandwiches, salads and more. Little Pots and Pans will be back this week as will Asian-American Food. Asian-American Food came into the market at the last minute. They’ve several tasty asian salads. Give them a try. Anton’s Bakery will be out this week for the last week of summer vacation. Anton will be back next Tuesday with his excellent selection of gluten-free baked goods.
See you at the Market!
