September is the last month of live music | Come watch the parade on 9/10
While summer is winding down for many folks, the market is still in full swing with activities, events, and music.
Starting the month off is Labor Day weekend. Market goers will find no shortage of goods to make their BBQ a hit, including sausages from Scratch Meats, choice cuts of beef and pork from Mason Hill Cattle and Lonely Lane Farms. To sauce or not? Both Danielle’s Sauces and Felton and Mary’s have spice rub and sauces to dress your meat. Tuituilla True Fish will be back with fresh fall run salmon. There is no shortage of produce from watermelon to corn and tomatoes for dishes that are a farewell to summer.
Basics Market will be back to visit on September 10th, however this time they have a special treat for adults, instead of the Market Sprouts Kids Club. Basics Chef and Culinary Mentor Sam Maggi will demonstrate a quick and easy summer favorite featuring Basics’ own organic Silver Sage™ Farms Beef, beef skirt steak with chimichurri and tomato salad. Stop by for a taste, take home the recipe and meet Chef Sam.
Also, on September 10th is the Beaverton Celebration Parade! Watch marching bands, colorful parade floats, and civic and cultural organizations march down 5th Street to celebrate the rich diverse community of Beaverton.
The nation has been facing the worst blood shortage in decades due to less blood drives during the pandemic. The Red Cross will be at the market on September 17th for a blood drive. If you are able bodied, consider donating. For further details visit the beavertonfarmersmarket.com/event-calendar.
The market welcomes back Natural Grocers to lead the Market Sprouts Kids Club in a hands-on activity. For more details on activity and time visit beavertonfarmersmarket.com/market-sprouts.
And don’t forget to enjoy live music at the market before it’s gone. September is the last month that live music is scheduled. Barrio Mestizo, Jamblers, Sandy Saunders, and Dave Degman & The Hometown Review close out the remaining season.
