NW Breakfast Sandwich

Shopping MioMarket at PSU tomorrow 9-2. Just in time, I just used my last market egg yesterday. I know the store sells them, but it’s not the same. A duck egg from The Dancing Chicken Farm, Tillamook white cheddar and bread – sometimes it’s from the Pearl; others its Dave’s Killer Bread – It’s my NW sandwich, and a damn good way to start the day. Long live local foods.

Believe it or not, there are more than eggs at the Market. Two Tarts Bakery or possibly 2.0 Tarts Bakery returns to where they started: making baked goods exclusively for the Market. They aren’t the only Bakery – Mio’s Delectables fusing Japanese flavors with Parisian DSC_0038technique.

It’s not all just cookies – Linda Brand Crab, for the new year – both Calendar and Lunar, the Year of the Goat (Sometimes Sheep) is a month away but it’s never too soon to start celebrating. Pono, Deck Family, Pine Mountain and Sudan will be there with roasts, steaks, sausages and maybe if mood strikes you Osso Bucco.

And what goes better with a roast than mashed or roasted potatoes. Thanks Rossi Farms.

All in all tDSC_0062here will be 60 vendors there selling everything from a bite for now and those hearty greens that you promised yourself would be the backbone of your healthy 2015. Eat your greens and eat what you enjoy; we’ll see you at Portland State on Saturdays this year, all year.

    It would be nice if a full list of the vendors who will be at the Farmers Market in these winter months was posted on the site.

      Thanks for the comment. Due the nature of the winter market – season, weather, product demand, supply, road conditions and other worries – who is there week to week will be constantly changing until late March. You can visit our website to get a better idea who’ll be around, but please keep in mind, there can be last minute additions and subtractions.
