Spring farmers market schedule to open April 7

The new indoor Spring Farmers Market will open its doors this April.

Sponsored by Chetco Grange 765, and located inside the Chetco Grange Community Center at the corner of Highway 101 and Zimmerman Way in Harbor, this newest farmers market will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., every other Wednesday, beginning April 7.

According to Market Manager Kathleen Dickson, customers will be able to shop at the spring market, for vegetable and flower seedlings and other perennial potted plants, early spring produce, flower bouquets, local free-range eggs, locally harvested mushrooms, and locally made food products such as preserves, lavender-infused items, and dried fruit.

“The farmers and growers in our area are really excited about the prospect of starting the 2010 market season earlier in the spring,” Dickson said, “and our local food artisans will also get the opportunity to show off their excellent products. Plus, the community will benefit by continuing to have access to locally grown and created food products.”

Dickson also thanked the Chetco Grange membership for their continued support of local farmers, growers, and food artisans. “By sponsoring this newest farmers market, the grange is saying to the community, ‘we believe in local agriculture and are willing to get behind any effort to make local foods available to all.’  “Having the grange as our sponsor means a lot to those of us working to promote the local foodship concept,” Dickson explained.

For information about the new Spring Farmers Market at the Grange, or to inquire about booth space, contact Dickson, 541-813-1136.

  • Greeks defy Europe with overwhelming referendum 'No'
    Greeks voted overwhelmingly "No" on Sunday in a historic bailout referendum, partial results showed, defying warnings from across Europe that rejecting new austerity terms for fresh financial aid would set their country on a path out of the euro. With nearly a fifth of the votes counted, official figures showed 60.4 percent of Greeks on course to reject a bailout offer from creditors that was the official issue of the ballot. Officials from the Greek government, which had argued that a 'No' vote would strengthen its hand to secure a better deal from international creditors after months of wrangling, immediately said they would try to restart talks with European partners.
  • China rolls out emergency measures to prevent stock market crash
    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's stock markets face a make-or-break week after officials rolled out an unprecedented series of steps at the weekend to prevent a full-blown stock market crash that would threaten the world's second-largest economy. In an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank. China has also orchestrated a halt to new share issues, with dozens of firms scrapping their IPO plans in separate but similarly worded statements over the weekend, in a tactic authorities have used before to support markets.
  • Rubbing along with robots tackles Abe's double dilemma
    Factory worker Satomi Iwata has new co-workers, a troupe of humanoid automata that are helping to address two of Japan's most pressing concerns - a shortage of labor and a need for growth. The 19 robots, which cost her employer Glory Ltd about 7.4 million yen ($60,000) each, have eye-like sensors and two arms that assemble made-to-order change dispensers alongside their human colleagues in a factory employing 370. Glory is in the vanguard as Japanese firms ramp up spending on robotics and automation, responding at last to premier Shinzo Abe's efforts to stimulate the economy and end two decades of stagnation and deflation.
