8th Annual Harvest Fair
This coming Saturday, October 7th, the Spencer Creek Growers Market will hold its 8th Annual Harvest Fair. We’ll have an all-day cider pressing — bring up to 3 bushels of apples (roughly 6 five gallon buckets) and either bring your own juice containers or purchase them for $2.50 at the market. 10 to 15 pounds of apples makes about a gallon of cider. You bring the apples and then walk away with fresh cider at no cost! Also, we need a couple of fun-loving, able-bodied volunteers to help out with the cider pressing. No experience necessary! Contact us or express your interest at the cider pressing area on Saturday!
We’ll be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m during which we’ll have five live music performances:
|10:15 to 11 a.m.||Willamette Brass Quintet|
|11:15 a.m. to Noon||Garden Variety Trio|
|12:15 to 1 p.m.||The Ridgeline Ukulele Extravaganza (T.R.U.E.)|
|1:15 to 2 p.m.||Sean Gill|
|2:15 to 3 p.m.||June Apple|
Our outdoor Cafe la Grange restaurant will feature salmon chowder, vegan autumn vegetable soup, bread rolls, gluten-free corn bread, fresh green salad, honey walnut pie and apple/plum pie with whipped cream. We’ll also have a corn-holing competition for all ages. Enjoy an old-fashioned country market where you’ll find plenty of fresh veggies along with crafters, food artisans, miniature dairy goat kids and a delicious all-local lunch with plenty of outdoor seating!
The Fall 2017 Market Quarterly newsletter is finally out. You can pick one up at the Harvest Fair, Bailey Hill Market, or if you’re a member of one of the 3 local churches or 2 local elementary schools they’ll have a few copies there, too.
