{pdx} hollywood farmers market

not on an english keyboard so this will be brief and with poor punctuation and capitalization. full report linked below {with proper punctuation, etc} with pics.

went to the hollywood farmers market last weekend for its opening. very small, but quite enjoyable. felt like a neighborhood farmers market which is nice. people knew each other and knew the vendors. parents pulled wagons filled with kids and produce.

there were a couple produce vendors i wasnt familiar with -- winter green farm from my old stompin grounds of noti oregon and sweet leaf farms. both had very nice produce.

the place that had me hooked, though, was peak forest fruit, a mushroom mecca. look at the beautiful and hefty yellow morels below. they also had black morels that were very good quality, each for $16 per lb. they also had some other fresh mushrooms, i believe, and several kinds of dried. best morels i have seen this season anywhere.

if i was in the nabe, i would be there every week for sure. i will get there fairly often if those morels last, too.
