It’s Fall here in Oregon and wine country is buzzing with harvest energy! As the new crop of grapes enjoy their last days soaking up the sun, we’re busy getting ready to launch the Dundee General Store website.

We’ve already received some beautiful woven market baskets and table linens, but are anxiously awaiting other products. Unfortunately, the blue & white Cornishware dishes, bowls, and coffee mugs will be the last to arrive in early November. However, we plan to have the store website up and (if I can get it figured out) our archived blog posts transferred over in the next two weeks!

Thanks so much to all of our readers for the enthusiastic messages you’ve sent on here, Facebook, and Twitter. We are excited to embark on this new journey and look forward to sharing beautiful, timeless products for your modern country home.

One of my favorite weekend activities are visiting our local farmers market. We are lucky here in Oregon to have thriving and vibrant farmers markets in nearly every neighborhood and town. The Portland Farmers Market organization alone has six markets across the city and there are several more (Irvington, St. Johns, Beaverton, Hillsdale, Hollywood, etc.) through separate organizations.

An essential for any regular to the farmers market is a good market basket or bag. While most use their cloth grocery store bags, sometimes there’s so much available produce that one or two isn’t enough! Something I am seeing more and more of at the markets we frequent are French style woven market baskets.

Not only are these baskets stylish, they’re also very practical and eco-friendly. Large enough for your market trips, these palm leaf woven baskets also double as a beach bag, picnic basket, or log carrier.

You can find these and other woven baskets online at Jeanne Beatrice. Visit one of the many Portland Farmers Markets or find a farmers market near you to support your local farmers and enjoy amazing seasonal produce, flowers, and hand-made goods.
