Wow!

Despite this last Sunday being the tail-end of a holidy, we had lots of folks show up and lend their support to our little, fledgling farmers’ market.

Thanks so much to everyone who showed up and really made it a fun time for everyone.

We’re really looking forward to next week when we’ll have even more of SE Portland’s urban farmers in attendence as well as vendors selling home-made and useful things like soap and tables.  I’ve contacted a few folks about becoming food vendors at the Hawthorne Market, so you may very well get to snack on things other than berries, though there’s hardly anything wrong with that!

I, for one, can’t wait ’til next week for more fun, food and barter.  And, to the gal that traded me a couple of Blue Boar for carrots — you totally made my day, cuz it was hot!

  1. Looks like the market is going great! Do you have room for another SE urban farm? We have a wide selection of herbs and heirlooms and grow year-round.

    • Yes, come on by – no fees, no rules, just a suggestion of good manners. The market is first-come, first serve, and anyone is welcome to set up a space. We usually start around noon, and produce vendors usually steer towards the cooler spaces on the west side of the lot. Hope to see you this Sunday.
