Enjoy culturally authentic foods at the Beaverton Farmers Market!

To our community:

As a market, one of the things that we enjoy most is providing our shoppers with tasty morsels from all over the world. While some call America a “melting pot”, it is rather more like a tapestry, with each individual thread having its unique origin. It is our goal to provide marketgoers with culturally authentic foods that help them explore and appreciate the many culinary traditions that exist here in the U.S.

This season, Mona Almadhoun and Ammar Abu Adi brought a new Middle Eastern dessert known as knafeh to the market and it has caused a lot of excitement. Knafeh is a Palestinian spun-dough sweet pie filled with cheese, doused in syrup with a sprinkle of crushed pistachios for color and texture. The pie is mild and pleasant in flavor, and it’s a beautiful balance of creaminess and crunch from the crust. Find it at Knaftak, where you can buy full-size or ½ the pie.

Don Felipe Fine Products specializes in artisan chorizos, typical of those that are found in the mercados of Toluca, Mexico. This season, Don Felipe decided to expand their business and opened a booth called The Chorizo Hub. They specialize in chorizo bowls that are delicious, nutritious, and satisfying. Add a couple of freshly cracked fried eggs to your bowl along with avocados, tomatoes, and cilantro for the ultimate breakfast experience. Their menu offerings include vegan bowls made with their vegan black bean tempeh or chickpea tempeh chorizo.
