Join us for a fun new feature: Taste of the Market!

MFM presents a new way to get to know the freshest produce. This coming weekend, you can find a brand new feature at the MFM. We’re calling it “Taste of the Market.”

In the center of the lot, among the tables and chairs, we’ll be sampling some of the latest and greatest produce in all the varieties available at the market that day. We hope it’s a way for our community to learn firsthand about the great Oregon bounty our growers have to offer.

And what better way to start out than with strawberries! Come taste, learn, and vote for your favorite. If you find something you’d like, we’ll be able to tell you which growers can sell you a pint or three to take home.

Just in case you need some ideas, here are some great strawberry recipes you can use them for:

The possibilities are endless. See you at the market!
