Beaverton Farmer’s Market

It is officially Farmer’s Market season!

We love to visit one of the local markets (we are fortunate to have a lot of them) every Saturday morning.  We usually get breakfast and check out the local produce.  So many pretty and delicious things.

Thought I’d start out the week with some pretty pictures of our first market trip this season.

Look what I had for breakfast from my favorite crepe lady!

The crepe had egg, spinach, tomato and cheese.  So good!  We had to have a sweet one too!

Jim and Cali went for the omelet- big enough for two or three!!

Even though it is early in the season there was plenty of pretty produce.

Our purchases included some locally made pineapple salsa to have with our pork tenderloin tomorrow, some berry  yogurt made form goat’s milk for Cali and the girls bought me some plants for my flower pots!

On the way out I discovered a new food booth at the market – gourmet grilled peanut butter and jelly!  What a concept.  They also have a food cart in the NW 23rd area of Portland.  I am so getting one of these on our next visit to the market!

They make their own peanut butter and all their jellys are from local berries.

They use Challah bread made in Oregon too.  Their menu of flavors is amazing.  I’m looking forward to trying the Good Morning – Challah bread French toast, blueberry jam, applewood smoked bacon,  real maple syrup, and peanut butter – yum!  All grilled, warm and gooey!

    I LOVE a Farmer’s Market! I am anxiously awaiting them to open here in New England.
    We just found out the Army is moving us to the great Northwest and I am hearing how beautiful it is there and how wonderful the berries are. I can’t wait to experience it!

    I love farmers markets as well! We do have them here in the UK but the weather can sometimes be hit and miss. We still have a mean crepe stand though.

    I feel hungry all of a sudden!

    This will be the summer that my Oregon trip will include the Beaverton Farmer’s Market. You’ve convinced me…now I just have to convince a sister to drive me there. We love the Lake Oswego Farmers Market and now I think I need to go to both. Thanks Leigh Ann for such an uplifting blog. Happy day, msk

      Definitely do it – the Portland Farmer’s Market downtown is great too as well as the Lake Oswego one. Lots of yummy places to eat at the LO one!! Who knows = maybe we’ll run into each other at one of them!!

    We love the crepe booth! A Crepe Bar is my favorite “go to” for spring and summer brunch parties when the berries are in season…happy Monday.

    I have to admit this makes me quite jealous- maybe even a little envious! Looks amazing. Our little tiny small town farmer’s market opens this weekend. I will have to try to block your photos out of my mind before I go! :) haha

    I am super envious of your farmers market. Oh, we have farmers markets as well, but nothing like the one you go to!! That would be wonderful! It just seems a little more livlier and interesting with the food vendors. But, I can’t complain. One of the things that I like about our farmers market is the produe must be grown in our county, no exceptions. I’m sure lots of markets are that way…but I know all of them are not. We also have one lady that brings freshly cut home grown floral bouquets and a man that makes local honey…he’s been in business for many, many years and everybody knows him. We have locally made breads and Amish pies and cookies. Ok, I guess that does sound pretty good…what more could you want? LOL

    I need to google a good pineapple-jalepeno salsa. I just tried it at the best restaurant in New Mexico- Double Eagle in Las Cruces, and they served it with green chile cheese wontons (a New Mexico thing) and it was to die for!
    You’ll have to tell us about the grilled PB & J’s we might have to make up some of our own here!

    Your pictures are wonderful! My Mom is the Nut Lady there at the Beaverton Market (The Bavarian Nut Co.) We love the market and are so glad it’s started again. Can’t wait for the fresh fruits to start coming in!!!
