The moment has arrived!

humzoo

Denny might be shocked that I don't write a book like usual but all I have to say is:

TOMORROW IS THE OPENING DAY for the Lake Oswego Farmer's Market. We've waited for the return since last October. Unfortunately our berries are delayed and probably won't be seen until mid-June but the market opening is exciting and I'm sure there will be fun things to see, eat, enjoy!

Absolutely, Dannie! And I might be biased but Oregon is the best when it comes to berries. :)

We do well with Strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. They grow the sweetest corn I have eaten right here in little Walnut Cove.I have heard so much about Oregon , I think it has alot of variety like NC.

I always think of the Mitford books when I hear about sweet corn in NC. I will agree NC has some sweet corn and awesome melons too. Strawberries...guess I'm partial to Oregon now--and so is Haagen-Daz who selected Oregon strawberries for their strawberry ice cream You won't see them in any market other than Oregon--they are too fragile to ship.

Lucky you! Our farmers market doesn't open until June. We have a lot of pick your own fruit farms close by and a farmer that grows butter and sugar corn and several other varieties...but we have to wait until the end of July for that. My kids grew up working at the corn stand when they were around 13 years old. They got to bring home all the corn they wanted so mom made out pretty well.

Farmers Markets are HUGE out here. The Willamette Valley is very fertile and produces as early as May and as late as October for the summer stuff--the Market downtown stays open in November for Thanksgiving and holiday buying as well as special holiday Markets around Christmas for gift-giving.
