Seasonal Saturday: Long Lines, but Worth the Wait!

Beautiful assortment today from the Portland Farmers Market!

This weekend is the first really gorgeous weather Portland has seen this spring, with temperatures in the low 80s. I didn’t realize how many people that would bring to the market.

To ensure proper social distancing, they only allow a certain number of people into the market. When they reach that number, only when someone exits the market can another person enter, which means a line forms to get in.

I’ve been coming to the market every Saturday for weeks, rain or shine, and the line has never been very long. Today I had to wait 25 minutes to get in!

Obviously so worth the wait. Look at all this amazing food!!!

This week’s haul from the PSU Farmers Market:

Flowering thyme, chocolate mint, purple cabbage sprouts, and whole wheat sourdough bread (not pictured) from Gee Creek Farm

Strawberries, kale, carrots, and violet radishes from Groundwork Organics

Flowering chives and sage from Simington Gardens

Calendula from Raymond Kuenzi Farm

Not pictured are more edible flowers from Raymond Kuenzi Farm (forget me nots, sweet alyssum, and columbine flowers) and pastured lamb, beef, and chicken eggs from SuDan Farm.

Support your local farmers and farmers markets!
