The Farmer’s Feast at PFM’s New Winter Market – Ready to Eat!!!

The season’s bounty, straight from the farm, prepared and served at the Farmers’ Market.  A Farmer’s Feast amidst the Farmers at the Farmers’ Market!

Join us this Saturday, January 7th  for the grand opening of Portland Farmers’ Market’s new Winter Market as The Farmer’s Feast partners up with Springwater Farm to offer shoppers a unique Farmers’ Market experience.

Throughout the winter, at Portland and Hillsdale Farmers’ Markets, the Springwater Farm booth adds a new dimension to their farmstand.  Alongside the array of wild & cultivated mushrooms for sale, Springwater Farm will serve a weekly selection of ready-to-eat breakfast & lunch fare.  Chef Kathryn Yeomans of The Farmer’s Feast will take what is fresh & abundant on the farm (& in the forest), and complement these ingredients with eggs, cheese, bread, & vegetables from the Farmers’ Market winter harvest to give shoppers a distinctive dining experience.

In addition to mushrooms, Roger Konka & Norma Cravens of Springwater Farm are bringing to market 2 heritage breed Tamworth pigs.  (a pig post will follow soon to tell you more about the farm & the pigs.)  Chef Kathryn will work her way through cuts of pork, creating a menu featuring a “pig of the week” selection.

But wait, there’s more!

Springwater Farm & The Farmer’s Feast will make available the recipes used to create the feast!  So many ways to enjoy the feast – ready-to-eat or make it yourself with market-fresh ingredients!

Here’s our grand opening menu.  See you Saturday @ PFM or Sunday @ Hillsdale Farmers’ Market…or both!  Saturday for breakfast, Sunday for lunch, perhaps.  Just a serving suggestion!

    It was a kale sort of day for sure! And thanks for stopping by my blog. Now I’m looking forward to enjoying more of your wonderful soup at the winter markets.

  4. What a wonderful post, Lorraine! You really captured the feel of the market yesterday, and I simply loved your appreciation & enthusiasm for the Farmers. They are brilliant folks, intelligent about what they do, and excited to offer their wonderful wares to shoppers like you. What a wonderful shopper-producer relationship we have at the Farmers’ Markets!

    And thank you for the fine compliments! I’ll have more soup at Hillsdale & PFM throughout the winter! And by the way, the kale you found so fine was the very one I used for the Minestrone soup.

    See you at the market!
