one last thing i have been meaning to share with you for some time now...
the following is an excerpt from a blog called goodstuffnw and it is all about lovely foods and lovely food related stuff happening in the beautiful part of the world that we call home! this photo is from day one of the st. johns farmers market and we were all overwhelmed with the outpouring of neighborhood support.
check out goodstuffnw.blogspot.com for beautiful photos, farmers market updates, reviews and some pretty cute dog photos! thanks so much for including us in your blog!!!
see you at the market!
St. Johns Farmers' Market:Last weekend saw the kind of terrific neighborhood support that a well-organized farmers' market can summon with the opening of the St. Johns Farmers' Market. Located within spitting distance of the St. Johns Bridge and gorgeous Cathedral Park, it was mobbed by happy shoppers who not only came to buy but to visit with their neighbors and enjoy the multitude of offerings from local food and beverage vendors. A few of the larger farms were represented, including Sweet Leaf Organics and DeMartini Family Farms, but included a couple of smaller farms from Sauvie Island, as well as other vendors like St. Johns Coffee Roasters and Dovetail Bakery. Dovetail owner Morgan Grundstein-Helvey's (above left) wares were so popular she had to send someone back to the bakery to make more muffins. Luckily it was just a block away!
photos will be following, but i wanted to make sure that you knew what we will be bringing to market this week!
summer peach cake (yes, it's still summer!)
nectarine vanilla bean muffins (featuring baird family orchards nectarines)
