Vendor Roster for August 20th

Montavilla Farmers Market vendors take pride in providing a unique, high-quality product that is grown, raised, harvested, gathered or produced locally for our community. We’re looking forward to a vibrant year, and hope to see you at the market soon!

Is your favorite farmer or producer missing from our lineup? Tell them you’d love to see them at Montavilla and to apply to be a vendor. We are still accepting applications for 2017. Check back often to see who’s coming!

Vendor Highlights for Sunday, August 20th:

Spear & Arrow have two new flavors to add to their luscious line of ghee: Shallot & Thyme, and Indian Spice, which is blended with turmeric, cumin, and cardamom.

Right now Amaro’s Produce is featuring a variety of peppers, including flamingo, gypsy, and green bell peppers. They’ll also have squash blossoms next week. If fried is the only method you know for preparing them — and you’ve been avoiding buying squash blossoms because of that — check out these ideas for using them in soups, pasta sauce, baked with ricotta & honey, or in quesadillas.

Fiddlehead Farm is bringing blush tomatoes — a new heirloom variety of cherry tomato. They are yellow in color, and just big enough to give the option of slicing, but most importantly, they have an outstanding and complex flavor.

Kiyokawa Family Orchards says either this week or the next is their last week for cherries, so get them while you can! Organic, Red Haven peaches are coming in, ripe and juicy. To top it off in the fruit department, Gravensteins will be here too, the traditional starting lineup up of apple season.

Deck Family Farm’s weekly special is on ground pork at $7 per pound. Deck’s meats are pasture raised and they are part of the Friends of Family Farmers Oregon Pasture Network.

2 Towns Ciderhouse is making their monthly visit to the market. Try their Outsider, an unfiltered semi-sweet cider made with Jonagold apples, or the sweet-spicy Ginja Ninja made with ginger root. Go seasonal and get one of their limited releases, or learn your cider history with a pick from their Traditions line featuring rare, heirloom apple varieties and historical cider-making methods.

Gravenstein apples abound at the market this week, if these tart apples are your thing, stop by Albeke Farms first thing to fill your grocery sack. They only have a small amount of these to go around.

And finally, Baird Family Orchards will have the famous Sweet Sue Two peaches. Each peach variety has its own personality and this is the one Portlanders go a little nuts about. Get some for yourself and find out what the fuss is all about!
