Product Alerts

In range of raspberries.

OUR BAR is a small café and bar located in Washougal, WA, that serves simple affordable food using locally sourced ingredients like raspberries that are seasonally available. They create many of their staples and ingredients in-house. Could they preserve your berries to serve their customers a bite of sunshine in the off-season?

CAMAS PRAIRIE WINERY, located in Moscow, ID, sources several local and seasonal fruits, like Red raspberries to create their wines. Send them a message to ask where they’re at in product development.

LOCAL CHOICE PRODUCE MARKET is a newly formed grocer in Portland’s Pearl District whose goal is to provide the neighborhood with fresh, locally sourced produce like Red raspberries from area farmers. Get in touch to talk about supplying them for next season when their doors open.

Marketplace Updates

Tracking transportation opportunities.

Jacobsen Sea Salt has weekly round trips available from Portland to the Netarts/Tillamook area in Oregon. They have room in the bed of their truck for additional products and will soon have an enclosed cargo van. They are open to one-time deliveries or working something out for more regular deliveries. Get in touch if they’re going your way.

Upper Dry Creek Ranch needs space in a refrigerated truck to move two pallets of frozen, pre-packaged meat from Sandy, OR, to Walla Walla, WA, preferably by this Friday, Oct. 5! Send them a message to make arrangements if you have space available.

Write your own post! Put an “Available” post on Marketplace to promote your own products.
