Why You Should Go To The Beaverton Farmer’s Market

I don’t know why it took me to long to discover that the suburban Portland community of Beaverton has a pretty poppin’ farmers market on Saturday mornings. We always drive 25 minutes or so to Portland for their food scene, but little did we know, Beaverton has one of the best farmers markets around. Located across from the Beaverton Library, it’s the single largest, all-agricultural market in the state of Oregon. You’ll find breads, cheeses, jams, sauces, oats, juices, coffees, chocolate, pastas and of course beautiful, in-season produce.

And read on for just a few tasty discoveries.

Snack on some sweet or savory crepes as you browse the various booths. Accompanied with a cappuccino, it was the perfect breakfast.

Loved this awesome scratch made BBQ sauce. It’s a Kansas City recipe, so you know it’s legit. You can only find them at the markets, so keep an eye out when in P-town!

These beautiful Starkrimson pears are juicy, relatively mild, sweet pears with a subtle floral aroma. Like most pears, the Starkrimson ripens fully after its been harvested. Look for the stocky stem and striking crimson color.

If you’re into super clean eating, you’d love these vegan snacks and meals from the Portland based Eatin’ Alive.  The food is uncooked and unprocessed but very tasty. I discovered them at my local New Seasons Market when I went on a 2-week grain and gluten detox.

There is a lot of clean and yummy healthy foods at this market. I’d say the city of Beaverton knows what’s up.

Go, eat, repeat.

PS – You can’t bring your dog in here, but they do offer a dog sitting service for a few bucks so Fluffy can sit and chill while you shop!
