I have been fortunate enough to visit farmers’ markets in many places…some very small and some overwhelming…and I’m always happy to come back to the wonderful market in my community. Although I’m not a vendor at THE BEAVERTON FARMERS’ MARKET any more I am still friends with many vendors and customers I got to know over the years. Fall is my favorite time of year at the market and I thought you might like to see a few displays of the produce that is available now. Aren’t the artichoke blossoms beautiful!!!
Fall officially starts next week and it’s time to think about a few special holiday gifts that I like to give as gifts for Christmas. I’m one of those strange folks who likes fruitcake, especially when they have had several months of being brushed with rum or bourbon. The GOLDEN FRUITCAKE I gave as gifts last year got rave reviews and I will be using that recipe again with a different assortment of dried fruits and nuts. The recipe will be coming soon. Stay tuned.
