Make merry with locally grown berries at Portland Farmers Market’s two berry festivals, set for Thursday, June 19, at Eastbank Farmers Market and Thursday, June 26, at the Ecotrust Market in the Pearl. We’ll dress a fresh baked shortcake with your favorite berries and top it off with organic whipped cream, compliments of the Oregon farmers of Organic Valley. Berry shortcakes will be served to shoppers who make a $5 minimum purchase from any market vendor.

Cooking demonstrations and musical entertainment will top off the sweet celebrations at both markets. At the Eastbank Market on June 19, watch chef and farmer Mark Doxtader of Tastebud Farm share his rustic techniques for making strawberry-port pie. Musical duo Robb & Crockett are promising folk-rock-country-grass fried good times! 

If you haven’t had your fill of shortcake, you can celebrate Berry Days again the following week at the Ecotrust Market, on Thursday, June 26. Shop the market and then enjoy shortcake #2 while tapping your toes to tunes by Square Dance Paul. Arrive by 6 p.m. and watch Chef Alfred Popp of Popp Catering whip up a berry meringue.
