Salmon Creek Weekly Highlights
TUESDAY, August 4
Celebrate National Farmers’ Market Week this week. Visit your local market and share the benefits of buying LOCAL.
We love where we live. Locally-produced food and its accessibility at farmers’ markets throughout Clark County benefit us as individuals and as a community. When we buy from local producers, we contribute to clean air, healthier soils, clean water and lots of it, abundance of wildlife, the maintenance of open spaces with green, rolling hills and recreational areas.
We also love our berries…..blueberries from Danielle Davis, La Center, and from Munoz Berry Farm in Ridgefield. The blackberry season has passed us by but Munoz Berry Farm brings RASPBERRIES. Get there early as they have limited quantities.
Windy Mountain Mushrooms return with Blue Oyster mushrooms – from Battle Ground.
Coyote Ridge Ranch, Urban Snail, Yellow Door Farm, and contributions from Gather and Feast Farm are popping with squash, leafy greens, beets. Delicious lemon cucumbers from Urban Snail. Starting to see a few tomatoes…..are we ready for those heirlooms? And we’re glad to see lettuce still with us, despite the heat, from Urban Snail and Coyote Ridge.
NEW Tuesday: You’ll HAVE to taste one of Baron’s Patisserie’s French-style pastries…the beautiful gooey, tasty kind of pastry. (From Vancouver).
Murphy’s Mustard now sold at the Information Booth. Small size, all varieties $6; large size all varieties $8.
The market is now located in the East Parking Lot (facing the Vancouver Clinic) of the hospital and there are no vendors inside the lobby. The market is respecting the need to avoid congestion at the front entrance and inside the lobby of the hospital during this pandemic.
We are asking our guests to recognize the need to follow the State of Washington’s mandate:
*Be aware of spatial distancing and stay 6′ from others who are not family members;
*Do not handle product, unless you are planning on purchasing it;
*Be prepared to bag your own product.
