This morning I opened up the FoodDay section of the Oregonian and found that they featured my write-up of the Hollywood Farmers' Market in their Market Watch column. Not only that, but they also included two photos that I'd taken and a link to GoodStuffNW!
For the record, the report said:
"The market: Hollywood Farmers Market, Northeast Hancock Street between 44th and 45th avenues; 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays.
"What caught her eye: Baby romaine lettuce. Think of tender baby butter lettuce, but with more structure. The tiny heads (3 to 4 inches long) would be perfect for a dinner party, served one per person and drizzled with a tarragon vinaigrette. Wintergreen Farms sells them for $1 each, or six for $5. Sweet Leaf Farm has them for $1 each. Both farms say they should have these for at least the next couple of weeks.
"Also look for Village Creperie, which, in addition to sweet or savory crepes, each week offers a seasonal crepe. The day I visited it was a Fiesta Crepe in honor of Cinco de Mayo, made with cheese, roasted red peppers, black beans, pepper jelly, cilantro, jalapeños, avocado and creme fraiche ($5).
"Captions: Baby romaine is not only adorable, it's more tender that the adult form, yet has more structure than baby butter lettuce.
"If the gorgeous produce at the Hollywood Farmers Market inspires your appetite, pick up a sweet or savory crepe freshly made at Village Creperie."
