Gardening is in full swing at the Beaverton Farmers Market: Happy Spring!



With the first day of spring behind us, the market is looking forward to the warmer longer days that spring promises. Of course, this is the market staff being hopefully optimistic, given that we live in the rainy, and somewhat unpredictable, Pacific Northwest. Given the longer days, the market now has longer hours to carry us through the end of the 2022 season. Our new hours are 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM, every Saturday, April-November. Giving our community more time to fit in all the things they love to do, including shopping at the market, gardening, cooking, or whatever brings you joy!

If you’re like the Market staff, then gardening may be your favorite spring activity and things are in full swing in April. This month we welcome back many of our plant vendors with flower, herb, and veggie starts to fill your garden. Black Dirt Farm, Cartwheel Farm, N&M Herb Nursery, and Pumpkin Ridge Gardens all will have starts this month.

And a friendly reminder for those who use SNAP or Cash benefits that the Oregon Farmers Market Fund program, Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB), includes herb, fruit, and vegetable starts. For every $20 spent exchanging SNAP or Cash benefits for market tokens the market will match that in DUFB coupons that can be used on starts for your garden! For more information on the program please visit the Market Information Booth.


Spring Vegetable and Lox Tartine

A wonderful way to enjoy vibrant spring vegetables is on tartine. Tartine translates to a slice of bread with sweet or savory spread or toppings. Shaved vegetables atop ricotta on a large slice of lightly toasted bread just can’t be beat.



  • Small assortment of spring vegetables, such as french breakfast radishes, snap peas, asparagus, sliced thin on the bias
  • French country loaf or other rustic bread
  • Ricotta
  • Lox (optional)
  • Edible Flowers (optional)
  • Olive Oil
  • Coarse salt and pepper



  1. Lightly toast large slice of bread.
  2. Allow the bread to cool slightly before spreading ricotta on top.
  3. Layer lox (if using) and top with thinly sliced spring vegetables.
  4. Garnish with edible flowers (if using) and finish with a drizzle of fine olive oil and salt and pepper.
