Vendor highlights for September 25th

The pear harvest is in and Kiyokawa Family Orchards has mix and match varieties for you to choose from. Taylor’s Gold has cinnamon colored skin and a floral taste. Bartletts are favorites for eating and also for canning, look for those with a yellow cast to know they’re ripe. Starkcrimsons are jewel red in color and great for eating fresh, but they don’t keep, so enjoy them while you can. The Asian Golden pear is bursting with juice like a pear and crisp like an apple. And give the Cascades a try, despite of their bumpy appearance, you’ll be rewarded with a huge pear that’s sweet and juicy with tender melting flesh.

Every week customers keep discovering that the market offers fresh oysters from Hayes Oyster Company in Tillamook Bay. Jesse can tell you how to shuck them and eat them raw, but he recommends letting steam do the work for you. After steaming you can eat them with your favorite garnishes, or try frying them. Broiling them to make Oysters Rockefeller is a classic!

Mixteca‘s outrageously good blue corn tortillas can be had made to order to take home and feature at your dinnertime taco bar. Fill with peppers and onions from any of the markets’ farms, Three Sisters black bean, pumpkin seed, and corn tempeh from Squirrel and Crow Foods, or go all out and grill a steak or slow cook a pork shoulder from Deck Family Farm.

2 Towns Ciderhouse will be at market for their monthly visit, and Kelsey will have their new limited release — Hollow Jack! A brew of fresh-pressed apples, caramelized pumpkin and sweet potatoes is finished with a dash of honey and spices to carve out this special Fall cider.

Glasrai Farm is bringing the tomatoes now. Abundant Fields Farm has wax beans customers are raving about. TbeeS has a limited supply of their mellow pumpkin honey. And Denison Farms can brighten any dish with locally grown ginger, turmeric, and lemon grass.

This is likely your last week to catch Cerigioli Gardens. Come early to get their chicken and duck eggs, learn a thing or two from Tony about how to use mints, rosemary, tarragon and other herbs for your health, and join the ranks of MFM customers who know how to make and enjoy a rabbit or duck for dinner.

Thanks to MFM volunteers, Leslie Sullivan and Nitya Brorson, for this week’s highlights and pictures. Learn how you can volunteer at the market!
