This week we are so proud to shine the spotlight on one of our fantastic sponsors: Flying Pie Pizzeria! If you haven’t visited our neighbor down the street, you are in for a treat. They have been offering hand-tossed, loaded up, tasty pizzas made to order for over thirty years! The pizzeria is the perfect place to bring the family, sports team, or to meet with friends. Looking for a fun date night? Hop in for a hot pizza and never-ending salad bar, and try your hand at the variety of arcade games they offer! You’ll love the nostalgic feel of this Portland landmark!
All of this extra warm (and gorgeous!) weather means that our flower vendors are still able to bring some of their most glorious bouquets yet to the market! You’ve seen them, but have you brought some home yet this season? Who doesn’t love a brightly colored bouquet in mom’s favorite vase? Flowers can cheer up a friend, liven up a dinner party, or simply say “I love you”. Treat a friend, a family member, or just yourself! Herr’s Family Farm and C Chang Farm will both be at the Market on Sunday, so be sure to slow down and smell the flowers!
Propel Studio is a community oriented architecture and development studio looking to work with creative, inspiring people and organizations. For them, clients do not simply signify an opportunity to make money. Rather, propel focuses on what they call the “triple bottom line”- environment, economics, and people – to create unique and inspiring solutions for each design challenge.
This Sunday Propel will be offering free design consultations for residential or commercial spaces. Come to the Montavilla Farmer’s Market from 10-2 on Sunday with your photos and drawings and experience their team in action as they create solutions for your design challenges. If you’ve been building a scrapbook of ideas for your dream home or business, Propel Design is here to help you take the first step towards making it a reality.

For the month of August, we will be increasing our matching funds! SNAP shoppers can now receive up to $10 in matching funds each market. Thanks to the generous support of New Seasons Market, the Montavilla Farmers Market provides season-long matching funds up to $5 dollars to shoppers who use their Oregon Trail EBT card at the market. We’re doubling our contributions this August to $10 matching. This helps your SNAP funds go further when you shop for fresh, local fruits and vegetables at the market. So be sure to come to the market in August to celebrate SNAP Double Dollar Days!
