For a little change of pace, we hopped the train to the downtown Portland Farmer’s Market this morning. It was my first time visiting this market, and – wow! Why did I wait so long?!
We’re at the peaky peak-peak of berry season right now, and they’re piled up everywhere. I scored some raspberries (for muffins, with a little shaved 86% cacao chocolate) and some blueberries (for pancakes, tomorrow morning).
The Portland market draws more specialty vendors than we get at our Westside markets. We had a grew time perusing local eggs, fresh-pressed cider, meats, honey, and on and on.
…Cuh-razy crowded, though.
Because you all are so excellent, I scored some fennel to cook this week! Thank you for all the amazing recipe ideas. I’m really excited to do a little culinary adventuring.
As always, if you want to see my other pics from this morning (and especially, if you want to see a very large number of photographs of berries, check out my 2010 Farmer’s Market set.
Hope y’all have a splendid holiday (U.S, at least) weekend! I’m off to play with my produce.
