We are monitoring the weather forecast for Saturday closely. If the heat continues to rise, we will close at 1pm. Stay tuned!
We always hate to close early, fearing the loss of opportunity for both customers and vendors but we consider safety of utmost importance. We will keep you updated to help you plan your weekend! In the meantime, please plan to come out and support our local farms and small businesses this Saturday!
Our farms are bringing LOADS of fresh fruit and produce, meats, dairy, eggs and cheese. In addition, we have plenty of vendors bringing freshly made salsas, hummus, tofu, pickled and fermented veggies and relishes, hazelnuts and nut butters, kombucha, baked goods, distilled beverages and artisan goods made by our talented makers.
It’s the sweet spot for ripe summer produce so you can plan on heirloom tomatoes, pickling and slicing cucumbers, all the greens and fresh herbs, carrots and root veggies, shishito peppers, summer squash and more. Don’t forget all the cherries, berries, peaches, nectarines and apricots!
We’re excited to welcome our dedicated sponsor and grant funder, OnPoint Credit Union to our POP Club this Saturday. The team at OnPoint are hosting an activity, “Make a meal from market ingredients” so make sure to bring your kids ages 5-12 on Saturday to participate AND earn their 3.00 in POP tokens to use on fruits and vegetables in the market!
Don’t forget to cool off while you’re shopping with a delicious berry sundae from RJ Farms, using their homemade berry compote varieties. They’re such a treat on a hot day and embody summer at the market!
We’re excited to welcome back the following vendors this week:
Squirrelly Jane’s Hazelnuts
The Grate Plate
The Pastry Smith
Hazel n Blue
You can find us at 2051 Kaen Rd (at the corner of Beavercreek and Kaen Roads) from 9-2 (closing hour subject to change due to heat) in Oregon City.
See you at the market!
This week we’re sharing about delicious smoothies. It’s a perfect way to cool off in the summer, stay hydrated and boost your nutrition level by adding specific ingredients, such as Microgreens!
I spoke with Mary from Mulino Microgreens, and she had some amazing facts to share when it comes to eating microgreens. These nutrient dense powerhouses are the perfect add in.
“Broccoli and Wheatgrass are our go-to’s for smoothies. Broccoli is an easy way to pack in lots of vitamins and antioxidants. Broccoli is especially dense in an antioxidant called Sulforaphane. 1oz of broccoli Microgreens is equivalent to 3Lbs of mature broccoli.
Wheatgrass is a can’t-go-wrong addition to any smoothie! It adds protein, a hefty dose of chlorophyll, and additional vitamins and minerals. Plus, it naturally gives a boost of energy!”
Simply add them to your smoothie recipe of choice.
Mary and Cory grow these powerful little greens indoor locally at their farm in Mulino. They grow with all organic practices and sell at farmers markets, local restaurants such as the Hive Social and even provide front porch delivery with their subscription plans.
Of course, there is no end to the fruit options one can add when making smoothies and the market has it all! From fresh peaches to ripe berries and even leafy greens such as spinach from Farm D’ICI all act as great components to increasing your vitamin intake.
You can stock up on berries now, freeze them and enjoy in the winter plus Mulino Microgreens is one of our year-round vendors so you can have them fresh even in the dark cold days of January. You can find Cory and Mary at the market every Saturday so make sure to stop by and enjoy the benefits of adding microgreens to your diet.
Check out this Berry-Well recipe to get started!Ingredients:
2 cups of frozen mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
3 large handfuls of spinach or baby kale
1 handful of microgreens (broccoli microgreens or pea shoots work well)
1 cup milk of your choice
1/2 cup plain yogurt (or plant-based yogurt)
2 tablespoons chia seeds (or seed of your choice)
Combine all ingredients in blender (Pour milk over the chia seeds to mix them into the other ingredients and ensure they don’t get stuck on the sides).
Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
