Salmon Creek Weekly Highlights
Here is what you can expect to see at the market this week!
Hope your July 4th was safe, celebratory and fun! On with SUMMER!!!
Remember that the Salmon Creek Farmers’ Market is a rain-or-shine market (exceptions: damage-causing wind, lightening strikes and severe air pollution). So it might be a little showery on Tuesday???? We’ll be there!
Healthy foods start with healthy growing and production processes. Look to your local growers and food producers to learn more about how each of them treats the soil, the ingredients, the process. Each will share their passions – and learn how they translate that into a delicious and nutirient-dense end result.
Visit Salmon Creek’s farmers’ market at the entrance to Legacy Hospital between 11 and 3 p.m. Back this week, Sunrise Bagels – yes, the same ones who introduced bagels to the Northwest from far-off New York City 20 years ago. Its bagels are famous for being the biggest, and for having the most generous toppings – and baked them every morning in downtown Vancouver.
Buy your produce from growers from Battle Ground, Ridgefield and La Center. Berries include blackberries from Jones Farm in Ridgefield and from our friends at Munoz Berry Farm with raspberries, blues, marionberries and boysenberries – plus blackberries.. Chae Mason brings her bounty of fresh greens, including Asian varieties, every week. Coyote Ridge brings cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, chard, beets and herbs. Anat Krier, as well….kale, herbs, garlic and fennel. Find starts, herbs and perennials from Sassy Creek (Amboy) and Jacki’s Heirlooms (Ridgefield).
Growers are added every week as their seasonal harvest becomes available. Buying local keeps local farmers and food producers in business! It keeps dollars in the local economy! It means fresh, nutirent-dense food available to you…sustainably.
Value-added products are plentiful as well: Riverview Foods, NWNut, Manja Creations, Murphy’s Gourmet Mustards, Montes Family Food salsas. Check out crafts from Mandi Vee, handcrafted glass from Soulbeautiful, Everything Paper, and – new venor – Impressive Inspirations; and rest easy with Nature’s Authority.
Ever tried microgreens? Learn and try from Harvest of Peace. Impressive Therese will educate and explain. Microgreens are wonderful!
New vendors added every week.
The Salmon Creek Farmers’ Market always accepts debit and credit cards and offers EBT services as well. We match up to $5 of an EBT transaction for SNAP customers to buy those extra fruits and vegetables. Rewards cards are available at the Information Table, inside the lobby: visit the market 10 times and receive 2 $5 farmers market tokens.
Visit our Facebook and Instagram pages as well.
Multiple farm businesses are growing food for you and for Clark County all from SW Washington. Let’s support them, nurture them and watch them grow!
