Last year’s Rocky Butte Farmers Market at Dharma Rain Zen Center

[Full disclosure: I serve on the board and am part of the core planning group for the Rocky Butte Farmers Market.]

I’m pretty chuffed to share the news that the Rocky Butte Farmers Market is returning later this year! As mentioned above, I’m part of the core planning group/steering committee for this market, which serves the east Portland neighborhoods of Sumner, Roseway, and Madison South; I’m lending my talents and skills with writing and editing content. In fact, I wrote the latest blog post announcing the market’s return.

Basic info preview: we’ll have five monthly markets from June to October, happening the first Saturday of each month. Continue reading “Rocky Butte Farmers Market Is Back!”

This Thursday hails the arrival of the holiday fundraiser, Bake America Great Again. It’s in its fifth year, and I can attest to it being a great event—all ages welcome and seriously family-friendly; I attended last in 2017 and brought home a bunch of delicious things. It was at Pip’s then, but this year it’s at Level Beer, located at 5211 NE 148th Avenue in Northeast Portland. Preemptive Love Coalition and RIHO will be the recipients of the donations.

The campaign goes from Friday, October 11 to Sunday October 27, a little over two weeks. $5 specials are the name of the game. Continue reading “Around the World in 82 Dishes Starts October 11”

As you may have heard, there was a major fire over on Bridgetown Bites headquarter’s side of town (I could see the smoke from my house). On August 26, 2019 it burned in a section of the Madison South neighborhood around 82nd Avenue and NE Knott Street, seriously damaging nearby structures—homes and businesses. The Lumberyard—a local business, and one that was affected, though only lightly—has counted their lucky stars and organized a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for those who did not fare as well.
