Celebrate Grads and Dad’s at the Oregon City Farmers Market!
Congratulations to our Dads and Grads!
This Saturday the seniors from Oregon City High School will graduate! We hope you will stop by the market for a bouquet and gifts to celebrate your graduate’s achievements.
In addition, its Father’s Day weekend, so we have put together a gift list to consider while you’re shopping for Dad this weekend. Celebrate him with some local favorites! Our vendor list this Saturday is plentiful with plenty of gift options for your loved ones and ingredients for delicious meals.
Despite the rain our farms have beautiful produce available right now including a small number of cucumbers and squash! Shuksan strawberries will be here from Albeke Farms plus other sweet, delicious varieties as well, perfect for a celebratory strawberry shortcake this weekend. Don’t forget the fresh whipping cream from Lady Lane Dairy!
In celebration of strawberries, make sure you read about our take home POP activity this week, thanks to Oregon State University Extension!
As always you can find us at 2051 Kaen Road (corner of Kaen and Beavercreek Roads) each Saturday from 9-2 here in Oregon City.
There’s something a little magical about cooking outdoors, over an open flame, surrounded by family and friends. Make sure you’re ready when the mood strikes you with our Summer Grill Pack!
4 pork chops (2 packages, ~1.2 lbs each)
2 lbs sausage (bratwurst, French Garlic)
4 lbs shoulder roast (1 roast)
Available for a limited time only, and a 20% discount off regular prices!
Our heritage breed pigs are born outdoors (no farrowing crates, ever!) on our farm and allowed to live a life as close to their natural habitat as possible. We make sure they’ve got plenty of protection from the rain and wind in winter and shade or wallows to cool off in all summer long.
A jar of freshly roasted hazelnuts from Squirrelly Jane’s is always a win at Father’s Day! Mary Clair also offers homemade hazelnut butters, trail mix and more. This is a great option for Dad!
Another great gift for Dad. Local distillery, Trail Distilling, will be here this Saturday with their mobile tasting cart and bottles for sale. Sample some of their beautifully crafted spirits, Gin and Tonic canned cocktails, and more. Ask about their Barrel Club too!
Rowen Forest has fragrant therapy oils and salves, perfect for sun damage, sore muscles and more. Sean even recommends using some of oils as a cologne, that’s how good it smells! All wild harvested with care and made in micro batches.
Don’t forget Dad’s salsa, made fresh from Ivan and Ernesto of Picasso’s PDX Picante. Several flavors, including their Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus!
Landia Organic Skincare has luxurious shave kits, featuring scents such as Cedar Sage and Vetiver. Shave creme’s, beard and hair oil and facial cleansers are just some of the ways to treat Dad to some self-care.
We are so excited to announce our Power of Produce activity this week for our ages 5-12 market goers.
Thanks to OSU Extension and their partnership, supplies and support, we are able to provide take home strawberry freezer jam kits!
*Kids must be present in order to take home a jam kit*
It’s that time of the year when the farmers market stalls are packed with ripe, mouthwatering fresh strawberries to enjoy right now. But what if you want to extend the season a while longer?
How about making some freezer jam? It has a fresh fruit taste, a vibrant color, and is easy to prepare – families can make it together. Kids can pick up a packet that contains a recipe and enough pectin to produce two (8 oz) half-pint jars of jam at the POP Club tent.
At the tent, you can also pick up a flyer with a QR code that directs you to a demonstration video produced by the Clackamas County Extension Service Family & Community Health Program. And once the strawberry season is over, you can start over again with other fruit – blueberries, blackberries, marionberries, raspberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, or plums.
Here’s what you need to do:
Come to our POP booth, conveniently located next the Information Booth, with your kiddo.
Get your 3.00 in tokens to purchase fresh fruit or veggies in the market.
Pick up your kit, directions and fun activities to go with.
Have fun making jam at home!
