Fill your pantry this Sunday with local goods

For those who mourn the end of farmers’ market season, do not despair.

This Sunday, Nov. 3, head to the “Fill Your Pantry Market” at the Forest Grove Grange Hall, 1917 B St.

Dairy Creek Community Food Web (DCCFW) and Forest Grove Grange members are teaming up for the second annual grand finale of the market season with help from Pacific University students.

Locals can head to the indoor farmers market to stock up their local stores for winter while listening to a guitar jam led by Forest Grove’s Kirk Larson.

“It helps out local vendors and is fun for the community,” said Robin Lindsley of the DCCFW. “This is a chance to get local food (that) people can eat all through the winter.”
