This month Farmers Markets are exploding throughout Oregon with freshly grown produce from local gardens. Farmers Markets reflect the needs of the folks that are located near them. As an example a less populated area will not have a large farmer's market while a larger city will have a large one. So Farmers Markets come in all sizes -- large, medium and small. But in this post I am adding a forth size I came upon in my Oregon wanderings. -- "tiny". The area surrounding this tiny market is called Deadwood an unincorporated community of less than 300 people.
Above is the homemade sign on its way to be posted at the market. The day I visited there were less than half a dozen vendors. But the produce offered was diverse and fresh.
Here is a sampler of the "tiny" market images ----
Fresh picked blueberries -- no chemicals.
Some of the vendors and their booths.
Fresh picked wax beans, peas, and zucchini.
An ancient scale to weigh the produce in this case -- blackberries.
Two different kinds of sweet plums.
My taste buds will attest to their sweetness.
Have some fun with friends and/or family . Visit different Farmer's Markets during the growing season. Support your local growers.
