Grapevine June 1 2008 Market

(post, Hillsdale Farmers' Market)

It's hard to believe it's June. The spring rains will eventually recede and things will dry out.

The first Sunday of the month is the usual slot for Market Jam with Josh. Josh is out of town so the Market Jam is next week. The Underskore Orchestra will be playing this Sunday instead.

Jane Luthy, owner of Coombs and Luthy and a Landscape Design and Garden Consultant, will be at the market this Sunday to answer your garden and landscape questions. Jane has 24 years experience in the Portland area. Have questions about your garden? Bring photos to the market and Jane will be happy to offer suggestions.

See you on Sunday!

What's Coming To The Market This Week?

Strawberries season was slow to start this year but the berries are starting to come in. There were a few Hoods available last week and there should be some available this week as well. However, it will likely be next week before we see Hoods in large quantities. Asparagus, snow peas, rhubarb, and lettuces should all be in good supply. Other spring items like asparagus, pea tendrils, rhubarb, morel mushrooms, scallions, green garlic and lettuce will be good supply.

Check the availability list for the complete list of who's coming this weekend and what they expect to be selling.
