The farmers’ markets here in Albany and nearby Corvallis open tomorrow! After such a long, cold, dreary spring, you can bet I’ll be there with cash in my pocket and camera in hand.
Although it’s still very early in the local produce season, market manager Rebecca Landis’s latest email to her Market Friends list (subscribe here) promises new vendors, including Cinco Estrellas organic farm from Junction City, and treats from last growing season (filberts, blueberry products from Sunset Valley Organics) and lots of plant starts. And a couple of market stalwarts – the Salad Farm, with their lovely mixed greens; Steffan Farms, which always gets an early start by growing almost everything under cold frames – should be on hand.
I can hardly wait…
