Saturday, May 22 – Portland regresses to winter weather, but the strawberries and peas forge ahead! Rick Steffen of Rick Steffen Farm will have shelling peas. “We’ve planted a thousand foot row,” he said at the Wednesday market, “we’ll have them by Saturday.”
I’ll be at the downtown Portland Farmer’s Market, with the Springwater Farm booth – duck in under the tent for hot mushroom soup samples to warm your spirits as you shop the market.
Sunday, May 23 – There’s more fun at the Hillsdale Farmers Market on Sunday. I can’t say what culinary creations there will be to sample at the Springwater Farm booth as of yet, I’ll have to see where the market and the weather take us!
