The Mushroomery

The Mushroomery – Lebanon

You might say business is mushrooming at The Mushroomery farm in the foothills of the Cascades in Lebanon, Oregon. Since Jennifer Macone and Dustin Olsen started their business in 2004, they’ve seen interest grow in mushrooms and their company’s wide variety of tasty morsels. “Dustin and I met through the love of mushrooms,” Jennifer says. “When we started our farm, mushrooms weren’t being cultivated as much for the varieties we’re growing, so I wanted to provide those to people because I consider them not only delicious, but extremely healthy.” Mushrooms are prized not only for a rich, earthy flavor that many enjoy but for their medicinal properties, as well. They’re also a good source of B vitamins, and studies have shown they have anti-inflammatory effects.

Mt. Hope Farms – Molalla

Mike Ellis grew up on the farmland that was his grandpa’s in Molalla, Oregon, and has carried on the family’s farming tradition at Mt. Hope Farms, learning the ropes from the time he was old enough to operate farm equipment, he says. Mike and his wife, Laura, specialize in making small-batch fruit spreads, crafted from the variety of berries and grapes grown on the farm. You can find Mt. Hope Farms fruit spreads in your Market’s specialty Cheese Shop. With flavors like Oregon Cranberry-Marionberry, Autumn Apple, Blueberry Orange Spice, Blackberry-Aronia-Lavender, these delicious spreads are perfect for your next cheese board. Ask your Market Cheesemonger for pairing recommendations. Market of Choice also carries Mt. Home Farms table grapes in the Produce Department. Grown organically and handpicked by the Ellis family at the peak of ripeness, these sweet, seedless grapes are delivered quickly to your Market to ensure premium quality and freshness.
