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.

  • Buffett's Berkshire takes $4.48 billion stake in Phillips 66
    The 57.98 million-share, or roughly 10.8 percent, stake was revealed in a Friday night filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Phillips 66 shares closed Friday at $77.23. Berkshire once held a large stake in the Houston-based company, but shed nearly two-thirds of it in February 2014 when it swapped $1.35 billion of shares for a chemicals business that it folded into its Lubrizol unit.
  • Fed's Fischer sees inflation rebound, allowing gradual rate hikes
    U.S. inflation will likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday in a speech careful not to overreact to a possible Chinese slowdown. The influential U.S. central banker was circumspect whether he would prefer to raise rates from near zero at a much-anticipated policy meeting on Sept. 16-17. The cautious confidence from Fischer, as well as from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who spoke at a conference alongside him, suggests at least two major central banks are poised to look beyond a week of financial-market turmoil brought on by fears that China's economy is faltering.
  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
