It’s May and the market is open! We are very excited to bring you the Cedar Mill Farmers Market this season. Music is back every week from 10am-1pm, Community Booths are back, and if you use your SNAP card, we’ll give you a credit of up to $20! Yay!
We are really looking forward to a more “normal” season and hope you will celebrate with us! Products – fresh, from the region, picked at their peak – you can count on that. You, our community, and our neighborhood keep this market going, and we appreciate you all.

Cornell Farm Nursery and Cafe
With gardening season in full swing and Mother’s Day just around the corner, Cornell Farm Nursery & Cafe is pleased to announce exciting changes to its operations – the nursery will be operating its peak season hours from 9am to 7pm. Additionally, the cafe is pleased to announce that it has begun taking reservations for its classic brunch service through the online system OpenTable, which they hope will simplify logistics for Mother’s Day.
“Since we opened on Mother’s Day weekend in 1987, May has always been our busiest time of the year,” said Deby Barnhart, President of Cornell Farm. “Since the cafe opened, it has only gotten busier. We hope our extended hours will make it easier for our guests to stop by to explore the eclectic collection of plants and flowers they have come to expect from Cornell Farm over the past 35 years. Our cafe’s reservation system should also make planning easier for those who want to celebrate mom.” There will be tables available for walk-in guests to enjoy brunch staples when reservations fill up.
Secure important documents in a locker
Even in today’s largely paperless digital age, there are times when you need the original of a paper document, such as B. Your birth certificate or house certificate. As the emphasis on protecting digital records and online identities increases, the need to secure your most valuable physical belongings remains.
A locker remains the safest place to keep the originals of important personal paperwork, including birth certificates (your own or those of your children), marriage or divorce certificates, death certificates for a spouse or other close relative, property records, collectibles or jewelry, and vehicle title.
Things you don’t want to keep in a locker include a COVID-19 vaccination card, emergency cash, a letter of instruction (including burial instructions), a living will, an original will, a passport, and a power of attorney (finance and health) . Remember that cash in a safe deposit box is not protected by FDIC insurance. It makes much more sense to keep the nest egg in an interest-bearing savings account. Once you’ve decided on a locker, let someone know where the locker is. If you trust that person enough, put them on the locker’s contract. If you die, this allows the person access without unnecessary legal entanglements and court orders.
When you’re ready to secure your important documents and belongings, visit Sunset Credit Union. They offer lockers of different sizes for all your security needs. Sunset Credit Union is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Washington County. To learn more, visit her office, visit her website, or contact her at 503-643-1335.

Joanna Brown – Introduction to Chinese Freestyle Brush Painting (Xie Yi).
Sunday 22 May, 10am-1pm, maximum eight students per class, face-to-face, one-to-one tuition, vaccinations required
Freestyle (Xie Yi) Chinese Brush Painting is about personal expression rather than accuracy or detail. It’s a spontaneous technique that seems simple but has many elements in its process. It’s about letting the brush flow, making a series of brushstrokes to represent an object and create a personal symbolic expression. Express your impressions of flowers in this introductory class, where I will demonstrate the medium’s basic techniques and processes and you will practice and create your own Freestyle Chinese Brush Painting. Individual instructions are given, tips, techniques and ideas are exchanged. Painting material provided.
Joanna Brown – Introduction to Sumi-e (Japanese ink painting)
Sunday 29 May, 10am-1pm, maximum eight students per class, face-to-face, one-to-one tuition, vaccinations required
Sumi-e means black ink painting. Using black ink and a white area on the paper, paint on the fly to capture the spirit of nature. The focus of the art of sumi-e painting is on the quality of line and brushwork to capture the forms of nature. In this introductory class, I will demonstrate the techniques of sumi-e painting and you will practice and create an introductory sumi-e landscape painting. I give individual instructions, tips and ideas. Painting material provided.
