August 28 2008 Market

(post, Multnomah Village Farmers' Market)

With school starting in seven days or less, this week is the last week of summer. Well at least in the eyes of many children including my own.

There is a lot of good produce coming into the market this week. The apple harvest has begun and the new apples are coming in. Peaches are still quite plentiful as are nectarines. Corn, a summer favorite, is plentiful. Green beans and pole beans in general are another popular summer vegetable. Sulina and Bay's Farm is coming back this week with a wide variety of pole beans including cranberry beans, green beans, romano beans, long beans and french filet beans. For the pesto loving crowd, basil should be readily available as well. And let's not forget prepared foods. Hot Mama Salsa came back to the market with their salsas and chips. Nikki is coming back with more product this week and hopefully won't sell out as quickly. Here is the list of vendors and expected availability list.
