You may be wondering, when there are markets nearly every day of the week raging on in Portland, why hasn’t there been a new post in a week?!
Though my recipes and post ideas are stacking up, my time has been eaten up at the markets! Sage Culinary Advice can be found throughout the week at a myriad of markets. Soon, I’ll be posting a calendar to make it easy for shoppers to find us, and even sooner, I’ll be launching a new venture with farmer/forager Roger Konka of Springwater Farm….
Monday is the Grand Opening of the Pioneer Courthouse Square Farmers Market right in the heart of downtown Portland, the newest branch of the Portland Farmers Market family tree. Springwater Farm will occupy a double booth, wherein side by side will sit Farmstand and Feast! While Roger peddles his farmed and foraged delectables, I will transform his wares into culinary delights and offer them forth. Soups, sandwiches, salads, all made with whatever the farmer offers me that week, supplemented by foodstuffs from other Farmers Market Vendors.
A true Farmer’s Feast!
Here is our Opening Day Menu:
Market Egg Sandwich
fried pastured egg & shiitake and maitake mushrooms, & Briar Rose Creamery garlic-herb cheese on Dave’s Killer Bread
Miso Mushroom Soup
vegan & gluten free!
Roger’s Wild Greens & Sautéed Mushroom Salad
organic mushrooms on a bed of amaranth, lamb’s quarters, & purslane
Springwater Farm Lamb Barbacoa
pit barbecue style lamb with a wild greens salad
Portland Farmers Market @ Pioneer Courthouse Square –
