Music: The Jamblers

The Jamblers play a blend of acoustic-Americana style music that everyone can enjoy. Folk, rock, bluegrass, jazz, country, alt-indie, pop, Irish – and plenty of originals that are hard to classify, but all of which fit nicely into their overall harmony-driven stringband sound; and that sound fits especially well in a festive summer outdoor environment like the Hillsboro Farmers’ Market!  

 They’re veteran musicians who know quality and know how to entertain - and how to light up the atmosphere with lively,  thoughtful and fun music. Whether you’re looking for melons or melodies, grapes or guitars, rutabagas or rhythms, cabbages or congas, you’ll like what you hear as you shop and enjoy the midsummer sunshine.

  The band members – Gene, Katie, Sarah and Jeremy - each come from different but compatible musical backgrounds, which they jamble together, rehearse and polish, and play for you. Some folks call it “Variety”. They just call it “Music”, and they look forward to meeting you at the Market in July!

Music: Half Grass'd

Born from the ashes of an open bluegrass jam session. The same fellows kept showing up and sounding better and better each week, and folks started asking them what their "band name" was, and whether or not they were available for parties and such... so these old salty, grey-haired manipulators of strings and purveyors of ancient tunes banded together, picked a name out of the air, and called themselves Half-Grass'd! Our music is unique…imagine a combination of Merle Haggard and the Rolling Stones, with a banjo thrown in for good measure! Some folks call it “Hillbilly Rock & Roll”…and that kind of fits our style. Our music includes 4 part harmonies, is family friendly, and is enjoyed by young and old.

 

John Stocks – Guitar and vocals

David Chalupsky – Banjo and vocals

John Keys - Dobro

Scott Cronin – Bass, Guitar, and vocals

David Hopkins – Bass and vocals

Rose Darke – Fiddle and vocals

Stevan Rogers – Mandolin and vocals

Check out one of their videos here!

Market Kitchen: Girl Scouts-Planting Seeds

Troop #12589 consists of 11 1st graders from several schools in Hillsboro. We decided to dedicate 1/3 of our Girl Scout Cookie earnings to our service project which is teaching kids how to plant and grow their own fresh vegetables. An overwhelming majority of the girls chose food insecurity as the cause we wanted to put our effort and energy into. Along with this project we will also be volunteering and donating to the local food bank. We will be attending the farmers market and helping kids plant bush beans in a bucket they can take home along with a flier to help them grow, harvest, clean and eat the beans. The small buckets will make kids in any living situation able to grow their own beans as long as they have outdoor space, so it will work in an apartment as well as a big garden space.

Market Kitchen: Creole Cravings

Elsy Dinvil was born in Jeremie, Haiti. She started cooking at an early age at her mother's side. She loved playing with food, which led her to pursue trainings in the food industry. She graduated from Ecole Hôtelière d'Haiti, one of the most prestigious culinary schools in Haiti and later got a full scholarship to study Food Science Technology at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. A six-year struggle with food allergies led her to a greater understanding of the mystery of food and its impact on the body. Her passion is to help orient people to eating fresh unprocessed food. Currently, she is focusing on developing her line of allergen-free Creole Me Up sauces and condiments. She holds various Haitian food pop ups during the year, cooks alongside renowned chefs in town, and teaches Haitian cooking classes around Portland, Oregon where she presently lives.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Join us at the traditional St. Patrick’s parade and be part of the fun!

The St Patrick’s Parade originated in 1979 as a Hillsboro Chamber project to promote retail trade, with Ruth Murphy as project chair and the Portland Timbers Soccer Club as Grand Marshall. Mary and Kathy, daughters of Murphy’s Furniture founder, Ruth Murphy, believe it’s important to provide the parade as a symbol of the hope brought with Spring and consider this community event a privilege to present. This year’s parade promises to be just as loaded with royalty. Participants who have marched alongside Hillsboro Farmers’ Markets include: St. Paul, Columbia County and Tillamook County Fair Rodeo Courts as well as The Budweiser Clydesdales and Ronald McDonald himself! Royalty comes in many forms, demonstrated with one entry already set to appear; the highly acclaimed Scott Pipe Band. Robin Scott, formerly a piper to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and his fully outfitted Pipe Band, in full uniform and colorful Scot clan tartan and chanter. The 17-member Scottish Pipe Band can often be enjoyed at the King’s Head Pub in Forest Grove on Sunday afternoons.

For more information call Murphy’s Furniture at 503-640-1124.
