In fact, being open during the winter is new for this market. Skye and I braved pretty cold weather to make it to their second showing.
Cindy and I headed over in spite of there being tornado warnings and rain. Apparently the market was more practical than us and decided to not open.
This last weekend was perfect weather and the three of us all went for a lovely family outing.
I only noticed that I was the subject of a photo as I was clicking off a pic myself.
There were several vendors that we knew from the Decatur market who I mentioned in my last post, Johnston Dairy Farm,
Deep South Mushroom Co., and Besmaid Garden Essentials, that were giving the Marietta Winter market a go.
We have quite a history with Pure Bliss Organics: Artisan Granola, Energy Bites and Nuts .
We first discovered them when we went to our first market here in Atlanta, over at Morningside.
When I was at the Peachtree Road Market, I ended up with a comment and picture on their Facebook page.
"Jon Danniells from Los Angeles says Naughty But Nice Bites are his favorite Pure Bliss Organics product. He likes the bite-size portions and thinks the taste is wonderful! ."
And somehow, I'm not sure of the history exactly they winded up as one of the vendors in the Costco in the movie Cindy was on, Neighborhood Watch.
Once again we crossed paths. I am actually snacking on "Fired Up Nuts" right now.
"Welcome to Mo’ Mint & Thyme, producers of fresh, all-natural mixes and marinades and home of the popular Mo’ Mint Premium Mojito Mix."
They offered me a taste of the mojito mix, delicious. then the Ginger Zinger, incredible, and some Jerk seasoning, amazing. "I'll take one of each", none of which lasted very long at the house.
I have been dabbling in Kefir and other cultured for a while now, but none have tasted as yummy and vital as the stuff Ancient Awakenings had at the market. When I checked out their website their story is even more amazing than their delicious product.
Skye and Cindy protest until I offer them a taste of the finished dish and then their omnivore instincts return.
A sucker for jalapenos and good labeling, well the Jalopy Jelly Peppers that I got from them has both and is not too hot to chop up and throw on a salad or into a stir-fry, which I've already done on more than one occasion.
There are of course a bunch more vendors, some which we got some amazing goodies from and others that we have yet to taste, but I have already gone on too long again, or hopefully just long enough.
