The Rocky Butte Farmers Market at Dharma Rain Zen Center in 2019
[Full disclosure: I am part of the core leadership group for the Rocky Butte Farmers Market.]
I’m very happy share the news that the Rocky Butte Farmers Market will return this summer! 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 put together the latest blog post announcing the market’s return.
Basic info preview: we’ll have five monthly markets from June to October, happening the second Saturday of each month. Continue reading “Rocky Butte Farmers Market Returning Summer 2021”

Roseway neighbors lament the shuttering of local favorites D’s Bar and Brickhouse Pizza (run by the same people) on Sandy Blvd at 68th Ave. On December 18 we became aware of an eviction notice and then on December 31, the businesses’ owner posted this on Facebook:
“Today is the last day for D’s and Brick House Pizzeria. Due to the past 9 months in a pandemic, it doesn’t make sense to continue with our business. Thank you for all your support since 2007. We are truly thankful for our wonderful staff, friendships that developed, loving relationships that started with a first date at our place memorable moments with KC Chiefs and Iowa Hawkeye football games, and devoted customers who are like family.”
I had heard great things about the pizza, and I know gatherings for Roseway Nextdoor members would meet there from time to time. Sadly, another one bites the dust in this crazy pandemic economy. Best of luck to the Martins and I hope we see them at some point again serving food and drink.
It’s always interesting to see what posts do well on this little blog site each month. Below are the top five posts from September. As always, thanks for reading!
5. Red Sauce Pizza Moving to Fremont and NE 47th Avenue
Yesterday afternoon I opened up Instagram and saw the news: Red Sauce Pizza is moving! I never thought I’d see the day, since they are such a presence on that strip of 42nd Avenue. They’ll be moving into a space on NE Fremont and 47th Avenue, which can only be the location of the now-shuttered Anchor End (and before that, Thrive). Anchor End closed in early August 2019.
