There continues to be a bounty of vegetables and fruits at the market each Sunday. You will find tomatoes, pickled cucumbers, corn, and summer squash. Kiyokawa Orchards returns to the market this week with dark sweet cherries and tart pie cherries, and you can also add to your basket apricots, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
Looking for a way to cool down this weekend? Stop by the market for a delicious cold treat. Urban Cheese has thirst-quenching raspberry lemonade, and Stellar Pop offers refreshing ice pops.

Let creativity run wild at the bead booth this Sunday! Kids can create spiral garden ornaments, pipe cleaner creatures, or bracelets for their friends.
From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Extra Measure will perform high energy, toe-tapping traditional dance tunes from the British Isles, Canada and the Southeast United States.
Gin Rickey Month
For the month of July, one of our vendors — Townshend’s Distillery — is hosting the 2nd Annual Gin Rickey Month at over 40 bars in the Portland area. Participating bars will be selling Townshend’s Gin Rickeys and donating $1 for every cocktail sold to support NotOk’s Safer Bars Program. Through Safer Bars, NotOk provides training to service industry staff on how to recognize and disrupt sexually predatory behavior that can take place in our drinking spaces. For more information on supporting this amazing cause including a list and map of participating bars, visit the Townshend’s Distillery booth this Sunday or visit ginrickeymonth.com to learn more.
