Market Update

Market Update December 7 2010

I am happy to announce that Packer Orchards is returning to the market. They will be bringing apples, pears and baked goods. We’ve all missed them. Fressen Bakery and Bigfoot Bread will be back as well. Speaking of Fressen, Edgar’s hands rolling out pretzels grace the cover of Edible Portland’s latest issue. You can read it online or pick up an issue at the market.

As a reminder, the market is open Dec 7, 14 and 21. We’ll be closed on December 28th and reopen on January 4, 2011.
