Weekly Market Report – Readers Edition

Suggested Reading List: The Market’s Mona Johnson did a great job with this month’s newsletter – Updates on the EverGreen Initiative (complete with stats), contributions from Market volunteer/Rockstar, Jane Pellicciotto and recipes from likes of cookbook author Cory Schreiber – it is a good read and it is all reposted below on our blog. If want or need a little an inspiration about how to create your own reality, even in a tough job Market, read Friend of the Market (FOM), Lee Weinstein’s essay from the New York Times here & be your own catalyst for change.

The now annual Local Lunch Box happens this Sunday at King Market, the following was excerpted from the aforementioned newsletter:

Expect a whole crop of fun activities to teach kids about the joys of seasonal, local eating, including a market scavenger hunt, nutrition bingo with Sol Pops popsicle prizes, and a chance to decorate your own “lunchbox” to take home and fill with market goodies. This year, drop in kids’ cooking classes will be held all day long and will feature a special guest appearance by local author (Harambee) and cook Grace Kuto at 12pm.

Lineup Changes This Saturday at PSU; Read All About It

Sexton ranch joins us every week beginning this weekend, Lady lane’s fresh jersey milk this weekend. You don’t need a translation to know Montillet fromagerie means cheese. Baird Orchards is in front of the library. Emerson Gardens and Old World Apples return and Swan island dahlias will be dropping flowers like similes all over PSU.

September Song is apt, as the days dwindle down to a precious few, both the Buckman and 23rd Ave Markets end their season at the end of this month. Enjoy them while you can 3-7, Thursdays through September. Today our friends at Country will be on the westside with a booth, stop and say hi. Maybe not this upcoming sunny weekend, but soon enough it will be reading weather and I just finished Jonathan Franzen’s novel Freedom, and yeah it is all that. Something can be both popular and really good; don’t listen to anyone who says different.
