Another visit to the Milwaukie Farmer’s Market

I just love all of the colors of the Farmer’s Market!

Great selection of fresh flower bouquets

I made a quick walk through the Milwaukie Farmer’s  Market on Sunday. I bought some strawberries, olive cream cheese, little cukes and tomatoes. It was a chilly 59 degrees so I did not linger like I usually do.

I observed a couple of things today.

  1. There is a new sign “No Pets Allowed”. I am not an animal hater but I always thought that it was not really the best place to bring dogs. There are food booths and all of the fresh fruits and veggies. I don’t want to be picking up some cukes or tomatoes that were touched prior by a person who just picked up their dog’s poop. Eeww!
  2. Almost all of the shoppers are carrying their recylecled bag, grocery store tote or a basket. Enviromentally respectful people shop at the farmer’s market.

 

 

 

 

 

 These strawberries were great for breakfast Monday.

 

So much  better than a melon from the grocery store. FRESH!

 

Colorful peppers

 

I didn’t need any zucchini but wished that I had bought a couple of eggplants. Oh, well there is always next Sunday.

 

Cute little cheesecakes. Good thing I had just eaten breakfast before going to the market.

  1. What great pictures. Hey I’m in the Portland Area this week if you want to meet up for dinner. I can’t Monday but Tue-Thur would be good. My local number is 360-828-3461. I love it when motels give you a direct line.

    • Well darn! Tues. and Wed. are out. I have dinner plans with a GF who seems to have something that she really needs to talk to me about. So that would be no fun for you. Wed. I have a physical therapy appt. at 6:00 way south of town. Let me see how Thurs. shapes up and I will let you know by Wed. afternoon.

  2. If we can’t meet up this time I think I’m back in September sometime. Heck we might even end up meeting in Mexico at this pace.

    Wow the weather has been great the past two days.
