Also on the 5th: Bill Baines, with Edge Master Mobile Sharpening, sharpens not only kitchen knives, but all types of blades. Bring your knives, gardening tools, food processor blades, kitchen shears, and lawn mower blades (remove them from the mower!) to be sharpened onsite at very reasonable prices.

And, last but not least, we are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Farm to Table Gala is going to be on September 26th at Farside Farms - the same fabulous location of last year's Gala. Tickets will be on sale soon at the Camas Farmer's Market Information Booth and on the website. We are looking for volunteers to help us with this fun filled evening.
