Wow… Over a thousand people visited the market last month. On my left: Boris was selling homemade Demi-Glaze on my right: Treat Street Granola. Over forty vendors from the Bay Area, ranging from wild boar buns to sourdough bread, the warehouse was packed with food producers and food lovers. A close friend in Colorado is starting a Denver/Boulder version of the West Coast phenomenon, hopefully this kind of experience will spread East. It has been especially encouraging to see how many new vendors sprout up at each new market. Check out these pictures from the market and then start one in your city:
The market is set up as a food club where patrons can “donate” cash for food items. Finding a legitimate farmers market spot is no spring chicken. Most Farmers markets require commercial kitchens, certifications, multi-year commitments and more. That’s if they even let you in. “Sorry there is already a honey vendor.”

Going to need a bigger spot next time for this little dino egg. Started in an empty Victorian living room where I was selling honey out of a bathroom. Now it’s a colossal monster vehicle. Seriously think about setting something like this up any place where people like to eat food.
