Market Update

Market News March 23 2010 Market

It’s nice to have warmer days. I don’t mind the rain (we are covered after all) but a cold wind can be trying. We have a few vendor changes. Osmogaia will be out of the market for a while. The soil is warming up and there is a lot of planting to be done on the farm. Curly will be back later this year. Packer Orchards should be back this week. THINK Unique Gardens has a lot of plants in the greenhouse and plans on returning to the market late April or early May. Given that it’s spring break week in Oregon, a few vendors are off this week. Fressen and Little Pots & Pans will return March 30th.

Here’s the expected availability list for this week:

Rick Steffen Farm – asparagus, onions, shallots, scallions, leeks, potatoes, carrots, beets, kohlrabi, spinach, swiss chard, miner’s lettuce, broccoli, broccoli raab (rapini), turnips, tulips and daffodils.

Packer Orchards – apples, pears, jams, cookies.

Greenville Farms – prunes, hazelnuts, eggs and jams.


Nature’s Choice – fresh mushrooms (shiitake, maitake, black trumpets), dried mushrooms, nettles, miner’s lettuce (maybe), mushroom salt, honey, chestnuts, huckleberry jam.
