As isour habit, we stopped by theOregon City Farmer’s Marketon Saturday to pick up much of our week’s produce. TheOregon City Farmer’s Marketis smaller than many other markets, but we are slowly getting to know the vendors and have found that the size of the market makes it a little easier to recognize familiar faces.
We definitely believe that getting to know where your food comes from, how it’s grown, and supporting the local economy by purchasing from local farmers is a critical value for our family. By both word and example, we hope that these concepts are passed along to our kids who go with us week after week and observe our pleasant conversations with local farmers and vendors.
And nothing is more satisfying than freshly picked berries in berry season here, as our kids know well.
Without further adieu, here are a few photos of this weekend’s spread. And believe me, the food tastes as good as it looks.
As the sign says…Fresh Garlic
Hydroponically grown heirloom tomatoes
“Specialty” beets grown with no chemicals
Flats of blueberries….We are eating them by the handful in the heat.
Raspberries and blackberries
Though these little guys were not for sale, Jonah and Rima enjoyed watching them, as well as looking at the eggs. The booth is maintained by the local 4H club.
