June 2nd

 

Looks like it is going to be great weather this weekend, and its going to be a great market!

Mee Mee of Mee Mee’s Goodies is bringing her new Haute Dawg cart to the market for its inaugural run. It will have something for everyone! You can enjoy a Zenners sausage, Fieldroast vegetarian frankfurter, or Squirrel and Crow grilled tempeh on a bun or a stick. Condiments will vary according to season, but may include grilled peppers and onions, Duck Ketchup, or Mee Mee’s own Bacon Jam. Yum!

Baird Family Orchards returns this weekend — hope that means it is the start of cherry season! Fiddlehead Farm has been harvesting tons of broccolli.Glasrai will have lots of Asian greens. Crooked Furrow Farm will be a foodie’s delight with their fresh fava beans, squash blossoms, and garlic scapes. Genevieve from the Urban Acre Homestead will be bringing the last of her Italiko Rosso dandelion greens. (It’s so amazing to live in a city, but still have access to these hard-to-find seasonal foods…)

Alchemy Elixirs has added tasty, healthy children’s treats to their menu. Get your little one mixed berry chia pudding, dairy-free tiramisu, or a berry smoothie. Each is priced at $5. (That’s the kind of treat that keeps kids happy, and parents worry-free!)  Check out this article about Alchemy Elixirs, to know more about the goodness behind their offerings.

If you are pining to pick some strawberries yourself, head on out to Oregon City, where longtime vendor, Albeke Farm, is now open for ‘You Pick’.

A national organization, the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense
Fund
 featured Deck Family Farm in their weekly spotlight. They wrote that Deck is , “… a 320-acre pasture-based diversified livestock farm in Oregon that is home to over 2,000 laying hens, turkeys, pasture-raised hazelnut-finished pork, grassfed beef, lamb, and a raw micro dairy…[whose] mission is to foster community by supporting local agriculture, feed local families a healthful and nutritious diet, and showcase the bounty of the beautiful Willamette Valley.” Great job, Deck Family Farm!

We’ll have Montavilla Food Coop at the Community Table this week. We share their vision of connecting East portland with healthy, sustainable food that supports farmers and builds community.
