OREGON CITY – The Oregon City Farmer’s Market is hosting its annual Local Libations celebration today (Saturday, July 23) from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 2051 Kaen Road — the corner of Kaen and Beavercreek roads in Oregon City.
Jess Land, director of the Oregon City Farmer’s Market, said the 10-or-so cideries, breweries, wineries, and distilleries appearing at Local Libations provides an opportunity for local consumers to taste some of the different varieties that exist in the region.
“Our local distilleries, breweries, and wineries use local ingredients to make anything from rose wine to hard ciders and they also use locally harvested grains,” Land said. “It’s a great way to come out and sample Oregon City agriculture and a taste of local culture.”
Non-alcoholic options, like a Kombucha mocktail mixed with hibiscus flower, also are available, she said.
“We’re at the height of summer produce and although the cherry season was a bit delayed due to the inclement spring the market has cherries and marionberries,” Land said. “This Saturday, we’re also excited to welcome Kiyokawa Orchards back to the market. They will have some cherry pies but are extremely limited.”
The Oregon City Farmer’s Market always features hot food vendors, produce stands, local artisan products, and a produce club for kids 5-12 years old that includes nutritional activities for children who get wooden tokens at signup that they can spend on fruits and vegetables in the market.
