Portland Farmers Market and Umi Organic will bring the Noodle Luge, a tasty spin on an Olympic event, to the King Portland Farmers Market, creating delicious fun for the whole family. Noodle Luge—or Nagashi Somen—is a popular summer pastime in Japan, especially with kids. Armed with chopsticks and a bowl, participants line up along a bamboo flume to catch fresh Umi Organic ramen noodles as they flow past in a stream of water. Participants can then take the noodles they catch to a salad bar, hosted by the market, to add Hot Mama Salsa sauce and an assortment of fresh, local vegetables from market vendors.
