Market Updates

Join us this chard mixSaturday in the Grocery Outlet parking lot! We will be set up from 9am - 1pm this Saturday in front of Grocery Outlet.

This will be the last week for Persephone Farm and Mt Hood Organic Farms, so be sure to stop by and stock up one last time this winter.  

Next month, we return to Hancock Street for our last two winter markets!  Join us to welcome in the spring on April 7th & April 21st, on Hancock St. between 44th & 45th Ave.

See you at the market! 

Thank you, Farewell & Welcome Alicia  

With the scent of daphne in the air and brightly colored crocuses dotting the landscape, spring's approach feels relieving and invigorating. We are busily and excitedly preparing for the upcoming market season here in Hollywood and we hope you are too! With spring comes change and today I leave my post as Market Manager at Hollywood Farmers Market.

2011 marked the fifth season I spent with the Hollywood

Farmers Market. It has been an extraordinarily rewarding and educational experience. I've enjoyed working with all of the amazing people associated with the Hollywood Farmers Market from vendors & volunteers to community partners & customers. Thank you for welcoming me with patience, helping me learn about the issues and challenges facing farmers and small food producers, and for bringing joy to the work that I do. I will miss working with you at HFM very much!

New Market Manager, Alicia McAvay.
I'm extremely pleased to introduce Alicia McAvay as HFM's new Market Manager. Originally from Connecticut, Alicia brings a strong background in community building & food equality to the HFM community. She managed the Camas Farmers Market in Washington for the past two seasons and is excited to continue working with farms and small food producers a little closer to home - Hollywood has been her neighborhood market since she moved to Portland in early 2010. Please give her a warm welcome and stop by on Opening Day, May 5th, to say hello and help kick off a successful 2012 season.

I feel lucky to bring my experience to Zenger Farm where I will manage the Lents International Farmers Market, coordinate on-farm workshops & classes, and help out with other responsibilities. If you find yourself nearby, please come and say hello! Zenger Farm is open for visits every Friday from 2-5pm, and the Lents International Farmers Market is open Sundays from 11am-4pm starting June 17th.

Of course I will still be around the Hollywood Farmers Market on Saturdays shopping and volunteering - I will see you there!

It has been a pleasure!

Warmest Regards,
Sarah Broderick

P.S. Don't forget about the April markets on 4/7 & 4/21. We will be back on Hancock Street ready with everything you need for your Spring Brunches!
