A bountiful reunion
Visions of sugar plums may not have been dancing in the heads of everyone who visited Lake Oswego's Reunion Market on Saturday, but other holiday treats certainly were — and the hundreds of people who filled Millennium Plaza Park did not come away disappointed.
More than 40 vendors filled the park with a huge bounty of farm-fresh produce and other seasonal products, just in time for Thanksgiving celebrations. Visitors found everything from honey, hazelnuts, mushrooms and sweet potatoes to pies, shortbread, jellies and more.
Garden Color sold greens and ornaments for decorating homes inside and out. There were lots of artisan gift items, too, including French tablecloths from Les Couleurs de Provence and the warm glow of Haute Candles. Souper Natural kept shoppers warm with soups, sandwiches and more, while live music and horse-drawn carriage rides helped to create a magical mood.
Next up in the park: the lighting of the Millennium Tree on Friday, part of the city's official holiday kickoff. Santa Claus will be among the participants, officials say, although he's likely to be riding atop a Lake Oswego Fire Department engine instead of his sleigh.
