What's in Ginger's shopping bag?
Are you curious to know what gems Market Director Ginger buys at Beaverton Farmers Market?
I'm a vegetarian and because I eat pastured eggs, it is important they come from humanely raised hens. I never buy eggs from factory farms where hens are caged and confined. There is nothing like the bright yellow yolk and fresh flavor of an egg from a happy hen at Winter's Farm.
At our house, Garry's Meadowfresh milk from Lady Lane Farm is known as the "good milk." Jersey milk is notably higher in calcium, protein, and non-fat milk solids compared to conventional milk. The smallest of all dairy breeds Jersey cow has less impact on the environment. Garry's expanded their Jersey dairy line to include fresh butter, cheese curds, and ice cream.
Meadowfoam is a small plant with a white flower. Bees pollinating fields of meadowfoam make honey that has the deep aroma of vanilla and toasted marshmallows. I am not joking. There is nothing else like it in the world of honey. Grocery store honey is homogenous, predictable, and boring. Once you try Meadowfoam honey from TBees, you will never go back to bland honey again.
As an avid cold brew drinker, I use my toddy maker to brew Bastion Roasting Co.'s "Bright" beans to make a smooth refreshing brew that has toffee overtones.
I'll admit that I like a little something sweet to go with my morning coffee so I indulge in one half of a Taming Turtle chocolate chip cookie. Three of their thick, gooey cookies will get me through the week. They come in a variety of flavors, and I like them all.
