I heart you, hawthyfarmar.

Please forgive me for abbreviating the fairly new Hawthorne Urban Farmers Market. Such things are irresistible. It's small and adorable, as is the nickname.
If you read this site last summer or the one before, you know that I'm wild about farmers markets. There are weeks I'd go to three, there are weeks I'd gone to four! With my busy ways, cooking for one and lack of desire to cook during the heat wave this past year, I dropped off the farmar radar for a while, but dude, I'm back.
I put on my shades and ventured for the first time to the Hawthorne Market at SE 41st yesterday. I didn't barter for local veggies (you can!) but I did come home with vegetables, chatted with the sweet gardening gals and felt precious with my mini eggplants in my bag the rest of the day.

Heading east on Hawthorne Boulevard.

Walking into Adorableland.
Skip the goat milk soap, contemplate natural black lipstick and eyeball fresh lemonade. I really dig how intimate this market is.

The haul: banana peppers, string beans, lemon cucumbers, green and purple eggplant, chard. I've already cooked some string beans and eggplant, whoa.

Spotted on my Hawthorne adventure in my own neighborhood (Division/Clinton) - <3 href="">Sip!

Yay! I love you for sharing this. It's such perfect timing. We just moved to Portland and I've been seriously craving both time at a farmers market, and a place to get vegan and green smoothies. I'm so there!

hey by the way, i talked to the black lipstick girl and she is super sweet. i asked if she ever made versions that don't include beeswax and lanolin and she said she was experimenting with that, and in the meantime she'd be happy to take custom orders. anyway she is great. i'm thinking about taking her up on it. (for the iron oxide rusty color btw, not black) :)

I had no idea there was beeswax! Clearly I didn't investigate enough - just heard Patrick from Last Supper's impressions and saw the booth at the market. thanks, shippie!!!!!!!
