Umi Organic fresh ramen noodles hit Portland with a splash
Portland, OR, August 3, 2016 – On Sunday, August 14, Portland Farmers Market and Umi Organic will bring a tasty spin on an Olympic event to the King Portland Farmers Market for the whole family. Noodle Luge—or Nagashi Somen—is a popular summer pastime in Japan, especially with kids.
Armed with chopsticks and a bowl, participants line up along a bamboo flume to catch fresh Umi Organic ramen noodles as they flow past in a trickle of water. Participants can then take the noodles they catch to a salad bar, hosted by the market, to add Umi Organic sauce and an assortment of fresh, local vegetables from market vendors.
Marketgoers of all ages are welcome to join in the challenge and enjoy its delicious reward.
