Father’s Day is this weekend and what better way to spend it than perusing the arts, crafts, and local foods at the Hood River Saturday Market. A few things we got that men love include fine wooden furniture, lawn ornaments, turned wooden bowls, photography, hand salves for their cracked hands, alpaca fiber socks, fresh berries, asparagus, and of course, meat! We have locally-produce beef, pork, and chicken- perfect for a Father’s Day feast! Grab your shopping bag, round up the family, and come on down to the market, 9am-3pm!
Summer is in effect and the produce is flowing! New this weekend is Rasmussen Farms bringing veggie starts, flower baskets, berries, and more. We will also have peas and zucchini at the consignment table coming from a small farm in Parkdale, Nature’s Finest. Other farmers this weekend include Sulina & Bay Farms, Jefferies Ranch, A & B Farms, and Tumbleweed Farm. High Roost Ranch is taking the weekend off to catch up with some summer planting. Find some great photography, jewelry, clothing, and other handcrafted goods too!
If you want to grow your own produce, we will have OSU Extension Master Gardeners with us this weekend to answer any gardening or landscaping question you may have! Here’s to summer!
