People's Farmers' Market
YEAR-ROUND, every Wednesday 2-7pm
In New England, where I'm from, summer = lobster. But as we all know, Portland is not like the rest of the country. So rather than going gaga for an oversized crustacean like our New England counterparts, let's do it NW style: let's go gaga for lobster mushrooms. Let's put them in chowders, bisques, and sautees and take pleasure in doing things just a little bit differently than they do in the rest of the country.
Eastside Distilling is taking this week off. They will be back next week with their homegrown, super-local, small-batch spirits.
This is the last week to help PSU students with their Farmers' Market research project. The project is designed to help us track who comes to the Farmers' Market and why. Information gathered will help us increase market attendance, and better work toward our end of "Thriving Cooperative & Local Economies". You can help by stopping and answering their quick survey.
The Seasonal Table Macrobiotic chef and People's Member-Owner Patty Bauer will be here from 4-5 demonstrating Five 5-minute salad dressings to help you take advantage of all the market's fresh salad fixin's. Stop by for a taste and some recipes to take home.
Kids' Activity Booth Come on down with the kiddos for coloring, arts & crafts, and storytelling. Hang out with them there, or drop them off with our friendly child-care provider while you shop!
Music at the Market Halakea will be here this week from 5-6, playing Hawaiian-style music. Stop by for the cooking demo, and stick around for the tunes.
