Hillsboro Saturday Market – Chef Live

A few weeks ago, my wife and I attended our local Saturday farmers market in Hillsboro.  We enjoy walking through the various vendors’ displays and seeing what products are in season.  We will usually purchase bouquet of flowers for our house, as my wife likes the added color.

We were surprised that weekend to come across a display called Chef Live where some of the market vendors’ products are available to sample in an easy to make recipe.  We were even more surprised to see the Chef in the display was Ellen, a high school friend of our son.  She and her husband live in the area and she has a crepe cart that she pedals to some of the weekday markets and offers crepes for sale.

For the last three weeks, we have made it a point to visit Ellen’s booth and sample some of the local products.  This last weekend she made waffles from her scratch mix and was sampling two local products: Auntie Jen's Apple Pie Jam and Boyco Raspberry Honey.  Both the sample products were very good as were the waffles.

Ellen also writes a weekly blog about the products she demonstrates and her recipes.  Ellens Chef Live blog:
