Farmer's Market

I am linking this at Life on a Hay Farm for Leigh's new photo meme. Go over and take a peek and join in the fun!



Today we visited Beaverton Farmer's Market and I got to meet one of my bloggy friends, Cathy from Wives with Knives! Cathy has a booth there and I let her know I was coming on Saturday and would find her and say hello. It was so fun meeting her. She is such a sweetheart! I wish all of you lived closer so we could get together for a great big pot-luck filled with all of your fabulous recipes! Wouldn't that be a blast!



I haven't been to this market in years. There is such a great variety of fresh produce and local items like honey, beef, salmon, flowers, pies, jellies, nuts, and lots more. Oh yes, and some fun music and a great play area for the kids. If you get a chance you should go and check it out!



There were lots of beautiful green beans.



A variety of yummy potatoes. I took some Yukons home.



Yellow beans are fun!



Aren't these raspberries cool?!



I loved this display.



There is a terrific selection of flowers.



I loved the way these radishes were stacked.



Is this a Japanese Lantern Julia?



This is just gorgeous. The sign said it was oregano. (The photo is a bit blurry so you can't quite tell just how pretty it is.)



Mmm. Garlic!



I have a thing for stacked veggies! Food is Art!



Mmm. Peppers and heirloom tomatoes! I ate some heirloom tomatoes tossed with olive oil, fresh basil and cracked pepper with my dinner tonight. It was so amazing!



Before we left we cooled down a bit in the fountain.



I ended up taking home potatoes, heirloom tomatoes, raspberries, and peaches. I can't wait to go back and pick up some more goodies. Don't you just love summer!

You're SO right - food is art!! It's so colorful, just like flowers, but people just don't photograph food that much - it's not like you have to comb its hair or make it go potty ahead of time - duhhh. GREAT job - love the pics, and can't wait to find out what you do with the goodies.

I made the Trailblazin' Muffins yesterday and they're being scarfed down! My son (who doesn't eat meat but won't call himself a vegetarian) is even eating the heck out of them. That's a keeper over here! YUMMMM.

I cannot get over your amazing pictures! Yes, food IS art! I would love to go to your farmer's market someday... Dreamy! Lori

How were the raspberries???

Heidi said...

The farmer's market looks like such great a place! Our farmers market is set up in the JcPenny parking lot...not to exciting! I just noticed your great header!

girlichef said...

That's it. I'm moving to Oregon. Any houses for sale in your 'hood??? You're are definitely trying to lure me in with the pictures of the market...I'm such a sucker for farmer's markets ;)

Cathy said...

Wow! I wish I had a farmers market like yours! The best one is about a 1 1/2 hour drive away from me (which is making me think next Saturday maybe I'll drag my ass from bed and go there while hubby is working on the kitchen).

I found you through "Wives with Knives". Isn't it fun to meet a fellow blogger? I just did and will meet another one in a few weeks. You have a wonderful blog. I'll be back.

I love the Farmer's Market. I go every Saturday that I am home. I bring home lots of fruits since I grow a lot of veggies. I will buy some tomatoes since mine aren't ready...our family loves BLT's.

What a great farmer's market they have up in Beaverton. I love those yellow raspberries! Thanks so much for swinging by my blog on my Sits Day last week:-)
