Market Updates                      
Last week we had Haunted Hollywood Walking Tours that were so enjoyable, we have scheduled another round to take place on Saturday, October 30th. Mark your calendars now! Starting at 9, 10, 11, and 12 from the Information Booth at the Hollywood Farmers Market, architect and Hollywood historian John Perkins will lead you on a short tour of Hollywood's most haunted locations. Not scary or too spooky, this walking tour is fun for the whole family!

Keep your calendars out! Many folks have been wondering how long the Hollywood Farmers Market lasts. We are open until Thanksgiving! Our last market will be November 20th, and our hours in November are 9am - 1pm, starting one hour later than normal.

This Saturday we have a few absent vendors - Frog Meadow Farm and The Village Crepery will not be at the market, returning next Saturday, October 16th. This Saturday is also the last day for THINK Unique Gardens with her delicious and amazing heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, and garlic. It is likely the last Saturday for Maryhill Orchards' amazing peaches as well. But not to worry! Mt Hood Organic Farms and Kiyokawa Orchards have your fruit needs covered with delicious varieties of apples and pears.

This Saturday is the last weekend to sign up for our final preserving class of the season on Fermented Veggies and Sauerruben. Have you always wanted to learn the traditional way to pickle vegetables? Been curious about the process of making lacto-fermented products such as pickles, sauerkraut, and kimchi? Interested in the health benefits of lactobacilli in fermented vegetables? Now is your chance to find out how it works and how to do it yourself.

The class will take place on Saturday, October 16th, from 9:30-11:30am at the Hollywood Farmers Market. It costs just $50 and is a fundraiser for our Fresh Funds Program. Call 503-709-7403 to reserve a spot or stop by the Information Booth this Saturday at the market.

Please don't forget about the last Cooking Demonstration of the season this Saturday at the market. Details below.

See you at the market!
Cooking Demo: Jeremy Niehuss
jeremy niehuss"Making people happy is the greatest reward in life," says Jeremy Niehuss, Executive Chef at In Good Taste Cooking School. Formally trained in classic French cooking at Chicago's Kendall College School of Culinary Arts, Jeremy's extensive knowledge spans far and wide, from cuisines of the Mediterranean to the food and flavors of the Pacific Rim.

Jeremy brings 17 years of industry experience to In Good Taste, having learned from talented chefs in Chicago, Lake Tahoe and Portland. Prior to this position, he was chef de cuisine at Fenouil, an urban French brasserie, and Lucier, a French urban restaurant. Jeremy also finds great pleasure in sharing his passion for food by teaching at In Good Taste - not surprising forsomeone who sees his work as "an artistic outlet that creates happiness."

This Saturday, Jeremy will demonstrate a homemade ice cream with reduced red berries, a great way to capitalize on the last bursting berry flavors of summer.

Cooking demonstrations will be held at 9:45am and 10:45am at the musicians' tent.
Alfred Novacek's Sauerkraut Recipe
makin the krautHere is the recipe demonstrated at last week's Oktoberfest Celebration. A fermented vegetable product, Alfred's sauerkraut is healthy and delicious. And it's a super simple recipe with only two ingredients!

Pick up some cabbage at the market this Saturday and try it yourself. If you start the process now, you'll have plenty of practice before Thanksgiving. You can also try a blend, or use red cabbage for a deep and beautiful sauerkraut. Interested in finding out more variations? Sign up for the preserving class on Fermented Veggies! Call 503-709-7403 to register or stop by the Information Booth at 44th & Hancock this weekend.
