This is a small, but very enthusiastic market. There actually is a community table where folks can sell their produce, or in this morning's case, tamales and horchata. A small collection of farmers are there. We picked up strawberries and fresh ameraucanas eggs, in the colors of organic cotton. If I had chickens, I'd get ameraucanas, just for the colored eggs. The chickens who produce these eggs are free range, and they live about 10 blocks from the market. How's that for local? A new round of hens will be old enough to lay brown eggs in next couple weeks. Yum.

Visit the Lents International Farmers Market and you will find a cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, baked goods, plants, flowers and prepared foods, many of which were grown or prepared by immigrants and refugees living in the Portland area. International music, children's entertainment and educational talks and demonstrations by chefs, nutritionists and gardeners, are all a part of the weekly fun! The market accepts WIC and Senior coupons and will soon accept the Oregon Trail card. A community table is available for anyone who would like to sell their extras from their home gardens. This is our first year of weekly markets.
