"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."
