Last Farmer's Market of 2008 CANCELED
If you hear a sharp cracking sound, it's not your windshield finally giving up the farm in protest of this rubbish weather, but rather my little heart shattering upon hearing the dismal news--in protest of this rubbish weather, Portland's Saturday Farmer's Market will not hold its final market of the year.
Here's the official skinny, right from the PFM:
Portland Farmers Market has canceled the market for this Saturday, December 20, 2008 due to the weather. Frozen, snow covered fields have made it impossible for the farmers to harvest and the forecast indicates more inclement weather is on the way this weekend. In the interest of vendor and shopper safety, we have regretfully decided to cancel our last market.
Please join us on March 21, 2009 to welcome the 19th season of Portland Farmers Market!
Bah humbug, Jack Frost! Now look what you've done!
We were slightly cheered however, to hear an exciting rumor: 2009 will bring the addition of a fifth Farmer's Market--a Sunday market, purportedly located in NE Portland at King Elementary School (NE 7th & Wygant). Neat-o. The more markets the merrier!
