Market Review                     
Thank You Hollywood Farmers Market Community!
The 2010 Hollywood Farmers Market season proved to be another great year. Gorgeous produce fresh from the farmers' fields, artisan treats, pastured meats, pie contests, cooking demonstrations, live music - what more could one want?

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers
Over 2,000 hours of volunteer service from Board members and market day volunteers made the market the success that it was this year. Volunteer service is invaluable to the spirit of the market and worth over $40,000 using the 2009 value of volunteer hours from the Independent Sector, a nonpartisan coalition of organizations committed to advancing the common good.

Market customers spent $75,300 in debit token sales, up 15% from 2009, and $24,600 in EBT token sales, up 101% from last year. And in it's first year, the Fresh Funds program matched $7,073 to EBT customers in our community. 40 organizations were represented at Community Booths and our crowd counts totaled 109,254 for the season.

Winter Planning
While the fields are resting over the winter, the HFM will be busy working on ideas and plans for the 2011 season. We have grand schemes for the future, if you are interested in finding out more and/or volunteering please get in touch!

See below for ways to support HFM vendors over the winter. We look forward to seeing you next year on Opening Day - May 7, 2011. Mark your calendars and rest well!

See you in May!
StayingLocalStaying Local this Winter
There are many opportunities for supporting local producers over the winter months. You can find many of our small producers such as Lady Lane Farm and The Better Bean Company in New Seasons Markets and Whole Foods stores around the Portland Metro area.

Nourishment at Wholesome Blends!
You know the delicious breakfast burritos at the market? Well now you can enjoy them Monday - Friday from 7am - 10:30am at Wholesome Blends coffee shop, 4615 NE Sandy Blvd. Ramona will be there cooking up her savory burritos, chilaquiles, and migas to help fuel your morning commute.

Peak Forest Fruit at Kruger's on Hawthorne
The produce market at SE 23rd & Hawthorne formerly known as Uncle Paul's Produce Market has been reopened as Kruger's on Hawthorne. HFM mushroom vendor Peak Forest Fruit will be there Friday afternoons from 3pm - 6pm and Saturdays from 10am - 3pm. Lars says it's the best truffle season he has seen in 25 years. IF you want to experiment with truffles, now is the time. Give Peak Forest Fruit a call at 503-324-0117 to find out what they'll have coming up. It's a business line so you can call 24 hours a day (we're sure some of you stay up late pondering questions about the fungi kingdom).

Tamales for the Holidays
Order Micro Mercantes tamales to add a little sabor de Mexico to your holiday party. They are offering a 10% discount to bulk tamale sales and free salsa! Visit the Micro Mercantes website for more information.

Farmers' Markets
As for farmers' markets, the Portland Farmers Market at PSU will hold its final market of the season this Saturday, December 18th. You can visit many HFM vendors there. Be sure to tell them you know them from Hollywood!

East of the river, the Tuesday Lloyd Farmers' Market and the Wednesday People's Farmers' Market both run weekly, year-round.

The Lloyd Farmers' Market is held on Tuesdays from 10am - 2pm. The market runs weekly except for the Tuesday between December 25th and January 1st. The market is held under the gazebo in the Oregon Square Courtyard on NE Holladay Street between NE 7th Ave and NE 9th Ave. The 7th Avenue MAX stop is across the street.

The People's Farmers' Market is every Wednesday from 2-7pm. It is located at 3029 SE 21st Ave in Portland.

And if you feel like taking a drive to Hillsdale, they are now operating on their twice-monthly market schedule. For more information, visit their website.

Lastly, the Montavilla Farmers Market will be holding three stock-up markets this winter. Visit their website for more information.

See the sidebar for a list of 2010 Hollywood Farmers Market vendors and contact information (if available). Feel free to contact your favorite vendor to see if they have another retail outlet in Portland or if they deliver.

We hope this information helps you keep feeding yourselves locally over the winter and look forward to seeing you next May!
