Market Updates
For most, the cherry season is coming to an end and if you buy cherries at HFM, you probably heard that last Saturday would likely be the last week to find them in the market.  Well, lucky for us, Kiyokawa Family Orchards is a part of the Hollywood community.   Kiyokawa Family Orchards is located on Mount Hood and their high altitude means they may have cherries through August! They start the market this week with three varieties of cherries and early apples!

As this season has brought us many early favorites, it also brings earlier good byes.  This week will be the last week for Glass Jade Nursery until 2014.  To sweeten this farewell, they will be offering 50% off all their herb plants this Saturday.  Feeley's Fruit also had to leave the market early and last week was their final week for this season.  Rock, Cane, Fat & Grain (formerly Confectionery) will be absent from the market this week, but will be back next week.  You can find Captured By Porches, Hot Mama Salsa and House Spirits Distillery in the market this Saturday. And 94.7FM (KINK) will be here too, with special giveaways.  As part the event, Blake Van Roekel from Good Keuken will be in the market, preparing a delicious dish from market favorites.  Stop by for tips and samples from 9:30am to 11:30am. 

And don't forget that National Night Out is next Tuesday, August 6th.  We'll be set up at the Hollywood Neighborhood Association event on NE 41st Ave between NE Hancock & NE Tillamook.  Come by between 6pm & 8pm.  

See you at the market!
Muckboots Trump Suits at the 2013 Oregon Legislature
by Friends of Family Farmers

On July 8, the Oregon Legislature adjourned its 2013 session, which was marked by the passage of significant legislation important to small farmers. Friends of Family Farmers, the state's leading sustainable agriculture organization, hailed the session as a success for family farmers across Oregon, noting bipartisan support for many family farm priorities.


Over a weekend session on July 6, the Oregon Senate passed HB 2700, establishing a first-ever Oregon Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program. The bill, also known as 'Aggie Bonds,' creates a beginning farmer and rancher lending program at the Oregon Business Development Department to help a wide array of small farmers with challenges attaining access to capital for land and equipment. Before the July 4 break, the Oregon Senate also passed HB 2427, a bill to ban commercial production of canola until 2019 inside the 3 million acre Willamette Valley Protected District, one of the world's preeminent vegetable seed producing regions, an effort widely supported by family farmers across the Willamette Valley.


Both bills were top priorities of Friends of Family Farmers, a Molalla based non-profit working to protect family-scale agriculture in Oregon. Another priority bill, HB 2393, created a land-use permitting exemption for small scale poultry producers who raise, butcher and sell no more than 1000 birds directly to consumers from their farms which will help small-scale meat producers across the state meet consumer demand for locally raised poultry.


HB 2427, which passed the Senate 18-12 after passing the Oregon House 37-22, replaces a policy adopted by the Oregon Department of Agriculture in February 2013 that would have allowed 25,000 acres of canola to be planted over the next decade in a region where the production of the plant for its seed has been banned since 2005. It instead retains strong canola restrictions in place in the Willamette Valley Protected District since 2009, while authorizing limited canola research under the oversight of Oregon State University.


HB 2700, which passed the Senate 21-9 after passing the Oregon House 48-10, creates an Oregon 'Aggie Bonds' program similar to small farm lending programs currently in place in 16 other states. HB 2700 allows lenders who make loans to qualifying farmers to take a federal tax credit on the interest earned on those loans, which will lead to lower interest rates for small farmers seeking to acquire farmland as well as new or used equipment.

strawberries for festival  
Albion Strawberries
Unger Farms

Folks we're in full berry season swing! Mosey by Unger Farms and your eyes are in for a treat! Blackberries, blueberries and strawberries canvas the table, specifically Albion strawberries. They have an intense color inside and out and are exceptionally sweet. Berries signal that summer is indeed here, and although we are graced with a short season, Albion strawberries are generally available until the last weekend of October. Stock up for your winter smoothies, jamming and preserving!

Meat Pasties
Deck Family Farm
What the heck is a Pasty? Shouldn't there be an "r" in the work to spell "pastry"? Nope! The pasty hails from Cornwall, England and was originally eaten by working men in the mines. These delectable babies consist of grass-fed Deck Family Farm meat and organic veggies wrapped in flaky dough, with crimped edges. Pop that baby in an oven and you have a complete meal. Choose from three yummy varieties of pasties while you're making the rounds at the market: steak & ale, pork & apple, and traditional (all beef).

Purira Pepper
Kimberly Farm
If you're looking to add some kick to your kitchen, Kimberly Farm can assist you in this mission. Their top selling pepper is the Purira Pepper. It's about 2 inches long and ripen from very pale yellow, to purple stripe, then to orange red when fully ripe. The ones at Kimberly Farm are green with some faintly purple markings. The Puriras are wonderful grilled or added to scrambled eggs (not too much!), and add a great kick to salsa and tomatillo sauce.

Smoked Salmon
Columbia River Fish Company

This is why you live in the great Pacific Northwest, right? To feast upon freshly caught, wild salmon (and the best price in town, no less!). Take it one step further and smoke the salmon and it's a whole new flavor paradigm. CRFC hot-smokes its salmon for 6 long hours, with Alder wood chips. Before that step, the salmon is brined in sea salt for one and a half hours for ultimate flavor. And of course no additives or preservatives ever make its way to the fish. 

Potato Doughnut
Fleur de Lis Bakery

Just after the market opens, you may or may not find Ari Rosner, the HFM Community Volunteer Coordinator, munching on something sweet and sugary whilst in the information booth. On more than one occasion, the potato doughnut has been the culprit. Dense, but at the same time airy and smothered in cinnamon sugar this sweet snack does not fail to disappoint. And Fleur de Lis doesn't cheat you; you get the companion hole, making this a truly complete doughnut experience.
