The opening bell will ring in a few minutes at my farmers’ market and its time for a quick walk through before the aisles start filling up with people. In 30 minutes all the beautiful displays will start to change shape as determined shoppers work their way down their shopping lists. So come along with me for a quick look at what’s in this week’s market. I love all the beautiful displays of fresh produce. You can see the pride that the growers take in what they grow and bring to the market each week.
You can find these vegetables in DeNoble Farm’s booth. Tom’s farm is on the Oregon coast in Tillamook and he makes the 2 hours drive to Beaverton every Saturday.
There are many booths in the market that serve prepared foods so, whether you are in the mood for breakfast or lunch, you will find something that suits your taste. I often buy a hot meat pie at Pacific Pie Company.
Their pies can be purchased steaming hot and ready to eat or frozen so customers can take them home to their own freezers. The beef and mushroom and Sunday roast lamb are my favs.
I love popcorn so this will be on my shopping list very soon.
The market has many flower vendors who bring gorgeous handing baskets, bedding plants, vegetable starts, herbs, perennials, shrubs and trees to the market each week. The hanging baskets on Saturday were amazing! I hope you enjoyed our quick dash through the market. I always look forward to seeing what’s new that I absolutely have to buy. This week asparagus is at the top of my list. I found a booth with the big, fat spears that are my favorite.
