The Sunnyside Farmer's Market
is open for the season! The market is open from 9am-3pm every Saturday, rain or shine beginning this Saturday, May 11th through October 5th. We really enjoyed attending last year, they even had a bounce house at least one week. I bought some amazing blueberry plants for only $5 each at the end of the season! Located at 13231 SE Sunnyside Road in the parking lot of the Sunnyside Church. More details here
Second Saturday at Zenger Farm (SE Portland)
Speaking of farms... This Saturday is "Second Saturday" at Zenger Farm
(a working urban farm in SE Portland). The second Saturday of each month, the farm is open to the public where you can join a hands-on work party from 10am-12:30pm, take a guided tour from 1-2pm or take a self-guided tour with a map. You can also just drop in anytime between 10am and 4pm. The whole experience is free but you do need to RSVP to Prairie at Prairie@ZengerFarm.org. More information at the Zenger Farms website at http://www.zengerfarm.org/
or call (503) 282-4245. Check the website out for more information on fun summer camps
with lots of different choices and scholarships are available.

One of my favorite antique and craft markets is open this week, beginning Tuesday, May 7th and ending Saturday, May 11th.
