The full-season market starts is here! Welcome back Summer Vendors

#BeavertonFarmersMarket

 

Every year we delight in preparation for the full-season market. Of course, it’s always a pleasure to welcome back some of our favorite summer vendors and their bountiful products. And of course, the Market community would not be what it is without its customers’ generous support.

The market has been open at an earlier time for one month, but May marks the beginning of a larger market. The community will be excited to hear the return of music and additional programming. For the calendar, visit beavertonfarmersmarket.com. On-site dining will return this season, and tables located near the entertainment area.

Last fall, the city completed the park fountain restoration, which it will unveil on May 7th. So families can enjoy a refreshing splash when they visit the market. In addition, we are happy to announce that our Market Sprouts Kids Club has returned, and Sprouts can expect fun activities from staff and guest hosts throughout the year. This month, kids will take home a chocolate mint plant start from our generous activity partner, N & M Herb Nursery.

 

Strawberry Goat Cheese Toast

Warmer weather means berry season! So naturally, fresh local strawberries are delicious straight from the pint container. Still, if you make it home with a few remaining, a simple toast is a perfect celebration of their juicy flavor!

 

Ingredients

  • 3-4 fresh strawberries, sliced
  • Fraga Farm spreadable chevre
  • Columbia River Sourdough bread
  • One teaspoon of fresh herbs (mint or basil), chopped
  • Aged balsamic vinegar (optional)

 

Directions

Toast bread lightly. Spread chevre on toast and top with strawberries and fresh herbs. If using, add a slight drizzle of aged balsamic. Enjoy!
