Beaverton Farmers Market features variety of greens
Beaverton Farmers Market is in full bloom with a vast array of produce featured.
"We're starting to see green beans, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, cherries, raspberries and other favorite summer fruits and veggies arrive at the market," Market Master Ginger Rapport said.
"Have you ever stopped to look at how many different kinds of greens are in the market? There are just so many to choose from. We often go back to the classics such as romaine, butter lettuce, cabbage, kale and spinach, but so many of our farmers have taken to growing really interesting greens and herbs," Rapport said.
She said bok choy, Swiss chard, mache, endive, purslane, mizuna, dandelion greens, raddichio, pea shoots, kalettes and watercress have been available this summer. New to the Beaverton Farmers Market this year is Black Dirt Farm offering greens, and an array of salad greens, kale, snap peas, French breakfast radishes and pea shoots. Black Dirt Farm also grows and sells dandelion greens.
