Local Choice Produce Market
New on the scene in the Pearl District of Portland, Local Choice Produce Market offers a tremendous selection of fresh goods, and features an in-store smoothie & juice bar, a beer & wine bar, and coffee bar as well. They place tremendous value on supporting small, family owned-farms in the Pacific Northwest. Wait, where have we heard that before? Oh yes, at Oregon Growers! Its no wonder we feel right at home having our products on their shelves!
We think that people care where their food comes from, said co-founder Don Sader, but we also see a lot of confusion out there about what local really means. Thats why we created our Happy Farmer Certified Local program, allowing a way for farmers, ranchers and fishers to certify the actual source of the products they sell to us. Our customers can shop with confidence knowing exactly where their food comes from because every farmer, rancher and fisher participating in our program has signed a certificate indicating the source of everything they sell to us.
Our kind of company!

Iconic Hood River Artist Contributes to Oregon Growers' Success
Mark Nilssonis a bit of an iconic fixture here in Hood River, OR. Walk down almost any street and youll see a Nilsson mural for a local restaurant, a Nilsson contribution for a local school or a Nilsson glass mosaic.
On a recent trip to La Ventana Baja the room in the house where we vacationed had 3 Nilsson paintings of gorgeous palms found throughout Mexico reminiscent of all the great attributes of the palm tree; how the fronds sway gently in the breeze, how happy we are when were on vacation, how lovely a pina colada tastes when youre drinking it somewhere warm.
Mark has a gift for taking his whimsical, lyrical painting style and connecting it to a thought or experience or, in our case, a brand.
Mark was commissioned to create the custom look and feel of the Oregon Growers product packaging and after just one round, created a lovely homage to the Oregon Growers mission. His designs beautifully illustrate the marriage of local fruits with our special recipes to create our jams, fruit butters and sauces.
Though youll see Mark's unique style on the small 4 x 4 inch paintings he dedicates to his many philanthropic causes and even on a box of Kimberly-Clark Kleenex, we love that you'll see Marks work on Oregon Growers packages from our gourmet chutneys to our heavenly jams .
Fruit Pate & Cheese Pairings
Our Fruit Pates distill the pure essence of our locally grown fruits, and their bright flavors and subtle sweetness is the perfect counterpoint to artisan cheese. Here are some recommendations:
Quince Fruit Pate: Aged Sheep's Milk Cheeses (Manchego).
Strawberry Fig Fruit Pate: Soft Ripened Cows' Milk Cheeses (Mt Tam / Cowgirl Creamery (Ca), Sea Stack / Mt. Townsend Creamery (Wa), Carmody / Bellwether Farms (Ca), Pierre Robert (France)
Pear Hazelnut Fruit Pate: Blue Cheeses (Oregon Blue / Rogue Creamery (OR)
Of course, all our pates are made from whole fruit, with no additives or preservatives. Enjoy!
