Last Saturday, I finally made it to the Beaverton Farmer’s Market. Not that I’m lagging behind the rest of the city, or anything. The season may be heading toward the finish line, but the apples, pears, and strawberries (Yes! Strawberries! Even this late in the season.) were delicious and well worth the sunny stroll around local farmers’ booths.
Sit-N-Stay interviews, trains, then provides work experience to youth who benefit from HomePlate’s services. Supervised employees ensure your furry loved one is well cared for while you shop for seasonal produce. Each pet gets his own shady tree and water dish while HomePlate youth shower canines with praise and treats.
The cost for doggie-sitting is $5/half-hour. The fenced off pet area is located near the south entrance of the market, near the fountain. Shopping crowds are a tad lighter during these fall months. Bringing Fido to Sit-N-Stay in the next few weeks provides a super way to support a small business making a difference for youth and four-legged friends in our community.

You know, Spring.
You know, the beginning of the farmer’s market season.
Sigh. Someday I’ll catch up with things.
