Reunion Market Another Thing to Be Thankful for in Lake Oswego

Reunion market reduced jpgOne of the hardest things to say goodbye to at the end of summer here in Lake Oswego is the Farmer’s Market.

Saturday mornings spent catching up with friends, sampling fresh produce and listening to live music are replaced with soccer games, college football and an extra hot extra wet cappuccino at our favorite coffee spot.

To ease our separation blues, the city has organized an annual Reunion Market just in time for Thanksgiving meal preparation with this year’s event scheduled for this Saturday, November 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Millennium Plaza Park, First and Evergreen.

Pick up some fresh fall harvest bounty along with gifts for the foodies on your list and then line up for a horse drawn wagon ride through downtown Lake Oswego (from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) Cost is $3 for adults 18 and over and $2 for youth.

Here are some of the vendors you can visit:

Kelly’s Jelly. Local girl does good. Lake Oswegan Kelly Calabria offers pepper jellies and seasonal fruit preserves that hold many claims to fame including the fact they are featured every Thursday in the Habanero Pepper Jelly Donut at Voodoo Donuts.

DeNoble Farms. Whatever side dishes you’re planning for Thanksgiving, DeNoble has you covered. They’ll be bringing:  brussels sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, Jerusalem artichokes, carrots, beets, kale, celery, fennel, celeriac, broccoli, cauliflower, romanesco, cabbage, parsley, chives.

Green Card Salsa. Chef Trenton Saenz promises to provide you with a “ticket across the border” one flavor at a time with his lineup of salsas ranging from mild to “muy caliente.” Forbidden Cinn (with apple and cinnamon flavor) is a seasonal fall offering.

Kiyokawa Family Orchards. Randy Kiyokawa plans to bring at least 20 varieties of apples and pears for those pies, cobblers, salads and snacks.
