This Week at the Market: June 16th

Eats

Bunches of yellow and green beans.Not sure what to get your father for Father’s Day? You can’t go wrong with making him a good meal from your favorite farmers market. There will be plenty of ingredients for grilling including sausages, hamburger, summer squash and asparagus. For dessert, you can make a strawberry & rhubarb crisp. I also saw the first of the green beans at the market last week, and I was lucky to also snag some snap peas. Make sure to come early if you want to grab either of those gems.

Kids’ Activities

Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington will be on hand to assist children in a fun craft. Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Tunes

From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Worn Out Shoes Stringboard will perform old-timey music with a touch of bluegrass.

We offer programs to help young people attain their GED credential and connect youth and adults to training programs in healthcare, technology, banking, and construction. Stop by their booth to find out more about their amazing organization.

SNAP Matching

For the month of June we are raising funds to help sustain our SNAP Matching Program. Our goal is $3,500 from the community in order to sustain a $10 match for the season. We still need $2,825 more to reach our goal, which will allow us to match $10 for the duration of the season.
