What we bring to the market

The Boothman girls bake artisan breads especially for the farmers' market.  Some of our best loved breads include Irish Dill Braids, Tomato/Herb Bread, Honey-Oat whole grain, Sourdough loaves, French baguettes, Potato Rosemary rounds, Challah Sabbath braids, and a whole-grain Peasant Rye, along with several other cool and tasty breads, such as a heavy German Vollkornbrot. 

Christine also bakes luscious cinnamon and orange/cranberry rolls very early on Saturday mornings, so they are still warm and tender as they reach the morning market.

We bake our breads using Shepard's Grain flour, which is grown here in Washington State, on the Palouse, using sustainable farming techniques.  We are privileged to be able to support our neighbors, and support their efforts to prevent erosion of our Palouse soil.  Visit and learn more about Shepard's Grain by clicking here.

While we girls are baking at our Pullman house, Rodger drives over to Moscow at the last minute so the fruits and veggies won't wilt in the heat.  He brings fruits each week in season from the fruit ranch where Christine grew up outside Wapato, Washington, the Doornink Fruit Ranch, or DFR, now run by her brother and sister-in-law Jim and Rena.  These include cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, nectarines, plums, prunes, apples---things that grow on trees.

We also co-op with the Imperial family, our friends and neighbors from Wapato, to bring their vegetables to the Moscow Market.  The Imperials grow peas, beans, squash, corn, tomatoes, okra, melons, cabbage, peppers, and other row crops.  I'll try to get some pictures of their family onto my pictures page so you can meet them, too.

Christine and the girls create homemade jams and jellies  throughout the year, which you can also find at our market stand.
