Endings and Beginnings....

Gresham and Milwaukie Farmers Markets ended this weekend and several more will end in the next two or three weeks.  However, Winter Markets will begin just as all the others are ending, there will even be some overlap.
Corvallis Saturday Market will continue through the Sat before Thanksgiving and the Wednesday Market is open the DAY BEFORE Thanksgiving!  Hot Damn.  Pick up your last minute fresh stuff!
 Lane County Sat Farmers Market will continue outdoors for the first two Sat. in November.  A one week break, then on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the Holiday Farmers Market will open at the Fairgrounds.
In the Portland area: 
Hollywood Farmers Market will continue through the Saturday before Thanksgiving, though the hours will be 9am - 1pm.
Oregon City Farmers Market begins their Winter Market on Sat. Nov. 5th and again on Nov. 19th. at 8th and Main, 10am - 2pm.
Montavilla Market will have a market on Sunday Nov. 20th, regular location and hours, 10am - 2pm.
King Neighborhood Market is over but the PSU Winter Market will begin Saturday, January 7th, location Shemanski Park.
Corvallis Indoor Winter Market also begins Saturday, January 7th, 9am - 1pm, located at the Benton County Fairgrounds.

Gonna try some new things, maybe dressings for greens, maybe cooking demos.  Come see us, get some cheese.  We're hoping to have a good winter by putting ourselves out there to get our cheese to the well attended winter markets.  It's harder to do it in the cold and sometimes road conditions are scary, and even the nice weather markets are challenging.... people are very cautious these days in what they spend.... so it's hard to tell whether or not these cold weather markets will do well.

  1. These are tough times, but that's when people really crave life's little luxuries. Here's hoping your loyal customers will introduce their friends to your version of a "vacation for the taste buds". Best of luck this winter, and hopefully spring will bring good times for all.
