The market had another fabulous day last week, but boy was it hot. This week we should have perfect temperatures around 73 degrees, so come on down! We have a special event this week, a Cookbook and Gardening swap, read more…

We’ll have lots of the sweetest strawberries you can find. Our cooking demo, starting at 4pm at NE Franklin and NE 4th will give you all sorts of ideas to use fresh, local, sweet strawberries. We may have cherries as early as next week.
This Wednesday we are excited to have goat cheese from Dee Creek Farm. You will be able sample the cheeses from Dee Creek and the jams from Nature’s Choice (they can be found at the same booth at the Northwest corner of the market).
Don’t forget to stop by the info booth to purchase your market tokens, with your credit and debit cards. Use them at the market (the vendors give change) or give them as gifts for Dads, Grads or Teachers.
A couple vendors are offering vegetarian dishes and gluten free cookies and cakes.
