Sandys First Saturday market has new offerings

Come Saturday, market visitors will see new vendors and the kids will like llamas

Sandy's monthly First Saturday market is alive and well, says its coordinator, Carol Cohen.

The March version of the market, which has taken over the lobby of the AEC building, will include some of the same vendors plus several with new products.

A Lake Oswego farmer, Cohen said, will bring plant starts that can be started early or raised in heated or covered areas until spring.

For the children (and adults, too) a Sandy-area ranch will bring a display of llamas.

Another new vendor will bring birdhouses.

And when market visitors need a break from perusing the tables filled with unique items, Jan Ostrom of Busy Bee Catering will be on hand to serve up wraps, rolls, homemade bread and beverages.

'We take the best kosher hot dog and encase it in our scrumptious homemade bread dough,' she said of the wiener wraps. 'They are a treat for all ages.'

Busy Bee's turkey wraps are not only tasty, they're good for a body.

'We put our twist on this turkey basic,' she said, 'by adding a touch of Greece. Spread with our Mediterranean sauce and filled with turkey, veggies and fresh spinach, it's not only packed with flavor, it's also healthy.'

Also on Busy Bee's market agenda are homemade cinnamon rolls, cookies and vanilla bean caramels.

And don't forget Busy Bee's freshly baked honey wheat bread - the answer to Sunday morning's breakfast: French toast.

Cohen invites all local residents to the market, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 3, inside the AEC Building, 39085 Pioneer Blvd.

'I should be adding new vendors each month,' she said.
