"I never miss a chance to visit this market--and every time I do, I have to curb an overpowering desire to move to Portland so that I can shop there every week. Not surprisingly, The Portland Farmers Market Cookbook is a gorgeous example of just how enticing (and straightforward) one’s food can be when it comes from local farms and ranches. With recipes from chefs, writers, market board members, and food producers, it is truly a joyful celebration of community."
—Deborah Madison, former manager of the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market and author of Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets and Vegetable Literacy, among others
"This book is a beautiful celebration of the Portland Farmers Market. The collection of recipes tells the story of Portland’s heritage and food culture: our creativity as cooks, the roots of seasonal foods, our culinary traditions, and how deeply we value craftsmanship."
—Jenn Louis, chef and co-owner of Lincoln Restaurant and Sunshine Tavern and author of Pasta by Hand
"You can travel the globe tasting the latest creations from the trendiest chefs, but there’s really nothing more important than knowing where your food comes from. I’m a fan of farmers’ markets in general, but especially of this book, packed with local deliciousness from our favorite neighbor, Portland."
—Tom Douglas, chef-restaurateur, Seattle
"You'll find tips straight from the mouths of farmers for identifying the best Pacific Northwest produce—from cherries, to artichokes—and recipes straight from those who likely know the farmers markets better than anyone: local chefs and restaurant owners."
