SoWa Winter Market 1/8

Gail and I made our post-holiday return to the SoWa Winter Market yesterday. Despite there being fewer vendors present then we were expecting  it was great to see those who made it out, and as usual, have a variety of interesting conversations with them.
This week we took home: potatoes, braising mix (chard & kale), and apples from Silverbrook Farm. Red pepper hummus from Samira's Homemade. Pickled golden beets from Grillo's Pickles. Kale & currant ravioli from Nella Pasta and artichoke & Boursin cheese ravioli from Valicenti Organico. A beautiful looking chuck roast from John Crow Farm, and last but not least, a bottle of hazelnut cold-brew coffee from Captain's Coffee Brewers.

It was great to catch up with some of the vendors, and as usual we learned a little bit from the vendors about what goes into their work ranging from butchering to finding seasonal farm help.
With the new year underway there are even more Winter Markets starting up for the season which means lots more new vendors and seeing some of our old favorites in new locations! 2012 is shaping up to be healthier and more delicious then 2011!!
