Summer is officially in full swing and we’ve got an amazing lineup of activities at the market throughout July.  Please note that on July 4th the market will be closed in observance of Independence Day.  Don’t worry though, we’ll be back in action the following week so that you can get your farm fresh fix!

Join us on July 11th at 6:00 pm for a cooking demo next to the music tent hosted by Northwest VEG to receive cooking tips and scrumptious samples. You’ll also be able to get a sweat session in along with your market shopping on July 18th at 6:00 pm at a free Orangetheory Fitness outdoor exercise class in the park right next to the market.
Good news! The days of roaming around the market for your favorite berry vendor or that perfectly-baked apple pie are over.

For several years, the South Waterfront Farmers Market has been incredibly fortunate to have Gabriel Bell, a professional swordsmith trained in the Japanese tradition, as one of the vendors at our market.

Gabriel is the proud owner of Dragonfly Forge, a local business that offers professional knife, tool, and other blade sharpening service to the Portland, Oregon metro area. Since Gabriel’s expert knife sharpening skills are highly sought after throughout our city, Dragonfly Forge is only at the South Waterfront Farmers Market about once every two weeks.

Here are the dates in which Dragonfly Forge is scheduled to be at our market for the rest of the 2019 season:

     - July 11
     - July 25
     - August 22
     - August 30
     - September 5
     - September 19
     - October 3
     - October 17
     - November 14
     - December 12

(Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, Dragonfly Forge may not be able to attend one or more of these particular dates. However, as of July 1 of this publication, Dragonfly Forge has committed to attending our market on these specific dates).

For the month of July, one of our vendors⁠—Townshend's Distillery⁠—will be hosting the 2nd Annual Gin Rickey Month at over 40 bars in the Portland area.  Participating bars will be selling Townshend's Gin Rickeys and donating $1 for every cocktail sold to support NotOk's Safer Bars Program. 

Through Safer Bars, NotOk provides training to service industry staff on how to recognize and disrupt sexually predatory behavior that can take place in our drinking spaces.  For more information on supporting this amazing cause including a list and map of participating bars, visit the Townshend's Distillery booth during their market days or visit:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks)
unsalted butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
- 3 tablespoons coarse sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners.

Whisk flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

Instructions (continued):
Whisk eggs, sour cream, milk, and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Mix egg mixture into dry ingredients, then stir in butter. Fold in blueberries.

Divide batter among muffin cups, filling to the brim (about 1/2 cup batter per muffin). Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake muffins, rotating pan halfway through, until golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 28–33 minutes.

Let cool in pan 5 minutes, then transfer muffins to a wire rack and let cool
