Market Day ~ August 29, 2007

Master Recyclers

The Master Recyclers are back this week. Did you know that Americans generate 1.6 million tons of household hazardous waste a year? The average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of household hazardous waste in the basement, kitchen, bathroom, and garage. When we no longer have a need for these chemicals, they are classified as household hazardous waste.
Stop by and learn what is hazardous in your home. Household hazardous waste must be disposed of appropriately, at Metro’s hazardous waste facilities or periodic roundup events.  Household hazardous products represent a small percentage of the waste stream. However, they are of concern to health officials and solid waste planners because even in small amounts they can be harmful to people and the environment. The Greener Cleaner display provides natural alternatives to common household chemicals so that you can help to keep these toxic chemicals out of your family’s life and from polluting our air and water.

Market Day ~ August 15, 2007

Wow!  That’s all I could think of to describe IFM last week.  The season is certainly in full swing now with peaches, cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, corn, walla walla onions, garlic, potatoes, lettuce, romaine, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, wild salmon, Rogue cheese, cookies, brownies, and much, much more!

Plus kids: we’ve had the kids from The Peninsula Children’s Center coming on field trips over the last few weeks.   Here is a picture that I feel sums up how everyone was feeling last week.

Peace Berries


Going to the Dogs:
Barkers Bones is changing names to become Happy Barkers!!  They will now feature all their fresh made, natural dog bones in both REGULAR and BITE size for all of your four legged pals!

Garlic lovers?
For all of you garlic lovers, make sure to stop by Mulino Valley Farm’s booth and check out six varieties of heirloom garlic.   Anne has some amazing varieties for every application.

Market Day ~ August 8th, 2007


Last week’s market was a cornucopia of produce, berries, kids and record 30 mph wind gusts and 90 degree temps.  Certainly kept everyone on their toes.  This week’s market predicts temps back down in the 70’s with the clouds giving us a much needed cool break.  So, if you didn’t get your summer canning started, then this is your golden opportunity with berries still in good supply.
And if you stop by the INFO booth this week we have some free travel alarm clocks to hand out, courtesy of Kaiser’s CHR department.
