Between mid-March and mid-December, the only place to be on a Saturday morning is the Portland Farmers Market. You'll find 4 street blocks sectioned off to allow a throng of foot traffic to saunter between hundreds of produce vendors, food carts and spontaneous musicians. One April morning, I returned home with lamb shoulder raised by a local farmer, loaves of freshly-baked bread, as well as fiddlehead ferns and morels, and made one hell of a feast with friends who were visiting from out of town.

Curator Ryan Snyder
Ryan was raised in a funeral home, and consequently takes everything too seriously. Especially food. He doesn’t shy away from smoking 25 pounds of pork belly, nor from undertaking an intense year of “study” sessions to become a certified sommelier. He writes about charcuterie on Meat Club, and hosts recipes with his venture Foodgeeks.Say hey hey on twitter » @ryansnyder
