September 18 2008 Market

(post, Multnomah Village Farmers' Market)

There's only two weeks left for the 2008 market season at Multnomah Village. Thank you all for your support. The Voyagers will be playing one more time this season. Ann Carstenson will be back with her shiatsu massage chair and Bill is back with his knife sharpening van. The weather made the start of the season a rough one but the late summer harvest has been great. The tree fruit harvest has been very good and you'll continue to find many varieties of peaches, nectarines and plums along with the apples and pears. The weather continues to be kind to blackberries as well.

Graceful Blades returns this week. The extended summer weather makes this a good time to plant. You can get a good jump on next season if you plant now. Stop by Grace's booth and ask her for ideas.

Here is the list of this weeks vendors and the products they expect to bring in:

Draper Girls Country Farm - ciders (maybe), apples (Gala, Gravenstein, GingerGold, Early Gold), nectarines, peaches, plums (Santa Rosa, Italian), dried fruit, tomatoes, lamb

Edgemaster - blade sharpening service

Graceful Blades - grasses, perennials, herbs

Greenleaf Farms - Blackberries, raspberries, carrots, arugula, new potatoes, chiogga beets

Greenville Farm - plums (Italian prune), apples,  zucchini, summer squash, green beans, corn, broccoli, tomatoes, eggs (maybe)

Herr Family Farm - cut flowers

Hot Mama Salsa -  handmade salsa and chips

Savory et Sweet - crepes and salads

Stephens Farm - blackberries, blueberries (maybe), peaches, apples (Gravensteins, Williams Pride), plums, kale, cabbage, peas, beets, onions, tomatoes
