Tip of the Week
Keeping it Local

If you never found the time to preserve the harvest this year, and forgot to stock up on winter vegetables at our last market, you may be wondering how to stay a locavore over the winter.

Lucky for you, there are many resources out there in the food-frenzied Portland area. Here are just a few examples of places that can help you keep it local this winter.

The Hillsdale Farmers' Market,
People's Farmers' Market and Lloyd Farmers Markets are all year-round markets. Check our their websites for details, but don't forget to come back to Hollywood on May 1st, 2010!

Proper Eats in St. Johns and Food Front in Northwest Portland, are two small groceries with a real focus and dedication to keeping it local year-round. New Seasons Market supports many local farms and businesses as well.

For more information on community food systems check out the Community Food Security Coalition or Slow Food Portland's websites, or search the web- you will be amazed at what you find!

The Local Dirt
We'd love to know how we can make the Local Dirt a more useful publication.  Please take our survey and let us know what you think!

The Hollywood Farmers' Market finished another excellent season in 2009 and we want to take a moment to thank all of you for supporting the market and contributing to its success. Thank You!

A few season highlights:
  • HFM shoppers made over one hundred thousand trips to the market this year.
  • HFM volunteers contributed over eighteen hundred hours of service to the market.
  • Thirty-five non-profits and community groups participated in the Hollywood Farmers' Market, educating and exchanging information with the market community.
We also couldn't do it without the support of the following businesses. Special thanks to: Albina Community Bank, American Property Management, DHS Northeast Self-Sufficiency Center, Dollar Tree, Green Dog Pet Supply, Grocery Outlet, New Seasons Market, Rose City Park Presbyterian Church, and Trader Joe's.

Mark your calendars now, the 2010 season begins on Saturday, May 1st!

Keep checking our website for updates and ongoing volunteer opportunities and we will see you in May!
