Market Report
Grants Pass, Ore.
Tues., June 24, 2003

The Market:

Grants Pass, Ore.
Tuesday mornings
Rogue River park

Market Notes:  I was passing through Grants Pass, on a quick trip up the coast from Los Angeles to Eugene, Ore., and back, when I spotted the sign for a growers market.  It was a tiny market, with just two fruit and vegetable vendors flanked by a pastry stand and a table selling potted plants.

Market-Goer: Mark Thompson, publisher of this Web site


What I Bought:

sour cherries

I bought these, thinking that perhaps I might try to dry them in the back window of the car on the drive back to Los Angeles and cook with them.  But they didn't last long.  My wife, daughters and I made quick work of them, even though they were indeed sour.

Price: $2/basket
