Recently Oregon Gal invited me to the Portland Farmer's Market where she is a vendor selling her out of the world goat cheese. Here Oregon Gal purchases fresh oysters from a fellow vendor.

The sites and smells were amazing! From the organic fresh fruits and vegetables to the vendors who were cooking their yummy foods.

Is there a local Farmer's Market in your area? Do you attend?

These tomatoes were so big that I had to hold one of them with both of my hands.

A fellow vendor and admirer of Oregon Gal. He sells his Smoked Salmon. He shared that his biggest customers are female. I can see why. The salmon is delicious and he is very charming! ;)

While Oregon Gal sampled apples, I sampled about 6 different jams. All were delicious. I bought Strawberry-Pepper. it is made with strawberries and jalapeno peppers. Oh man, talk about tantalizing your taste buds. Yummy!

As soon as I shared with sons Sequoyah and Joshblu that there is Chitown Pizza in Oregon, we decided we are going back to the farmer's market very soon.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
