Tualatin Farmers Market – by Valerie MacQuarrie
I stopped by our local Tualatin Farmers Market on their opening day this past Friday.. and I have to say, what a treat! I was expecting to find just the usual produce stalls but instead found much more. Along with fresh fruits and veggies there was live music and a delicious aroma wafting through the air coming from the various food vendors – from wood-burning oven pizza to Thai food. I am pretty sure I gained five pounds just standing next to the stall where the guy was frosting the hot mini-donuts, sigh.
I was particularly delighted with the local raw honey, and a jam company serving up creative low-sugar varieties with names like ‘Peach Cinnamon Pinot’ and ‘Plum Cinnamon Walnut’ Yum. I found the Flying Squirrel peanut butter two stalls down – a perfect accompaniment to my newly acquired jam, with more interesting taste combinations than anyone could ever ask of from their PB.

I encourage you to stop by on a Friday from 4-8 pm and check it out for yourself, You might go there for strawberries and come home with some homemade soap. I did.
