July 31 2008 Market

(post, Multnomah Village Farmers' Market)

What is coming into the market this week? Peaches will be available. There will lots of berries too - raspberries, strawberries, marionberries, blackberries and blueberries. Apricots, nectarines and cherries should be in readily available as well. As for vegetables, you should find lettuce, green beans, potatoes, snow peas, summer squash, zucchini and cabbage. Corn and melons, two summer favorites, should be coming on very soon. Melons should be in the next week while corn is a few weeks out. 

Quite a few shoppers have been asking for a gluten free bakery. I've been working with a new bakery and we should have a gluten free bakery next week. I'll post a quick note as soon as I have more information. 

Here is the quick list of the farmers and vendors this week:

Draper Girls Country Farm - ciders, apples, apricots, cherries, dried fruit, lamb
Fressen Bakery - Austrian/German breads and pastries
Graceful Blades - grasses, perennials, hanging baskets
Greenleaf Farms - Blackberries, raspberries, sugar snap peas, green beans, yellow wax beans, snow peas, new potatoes, chiogga beets
Greenville Farm - blueberries, raspberries, marionberries, loganberries, zucchini, summer squash, green beans, snow peas, eggs, honey, prunes
Herr Family Farm - cut flowers
Market Fruit/Packer Orchards - peaches, nectarines, cherries, cookies, jams.
Otto and Anita's - Sausage and kraut, dill pickle soup, strudel 
Posey Patch - annuals, perennials and vegetable starts
Savory et Sweet - crepes and salads
Stephens Farm - blueberries, raspberries, peaches, lettuce, kale, cabbage, peas, beets, onions, snow peas, tomatoes
Unger Farms - blueberries, raspberries, strawberries

Take a look at the featured recipes above for some cooking ideas. I used the apricot-cherry crisp recipe on Sunday, swapping peaches for the apricots. It's a quick and easy recipe. I like to think of it as dessert good enough for breakfast.

See you at the market!
