Here at BRAISED we celebrate and promote other local small businesses. Come to the last Winter Market of the year, stock up on your broth for your holiday gifting and cooking, and visit a few of our friends:
Wallace Farms—My family’s personal farmer and known for their grass-fed beef and sustainably produced meat products. Nick is set up right next to us (lower level in the ballroom along the East wall) and selling his maple hams, bacon, and some other holiday-friendly favorites.
Grade A Gardens: Known for their garlic (a great cuppa broth stir-in) and certified organic produce - Jordan and Whitney's high tunnel allows for some winter produce sales like watermelon radish, sweet potatoes, and Napa cabbage (if you're early enough).
Fresh: That Wheatgrass Girl! I love their celery juice and I believe in it so much I recommend it as an addition to my BRAISED Bone Broth cleanse. Kerri is a great friend of mine and I was one of her first wheatgrass customers over 10 years ago when she first debuted her healthy creations at the Farmers' Market.
Des Fresh (find on Facebook at Des.Fresh.Foods or Instagram at des.fresh.foodtruck): Grab breakfast or lunch with their beautiful plant-based locally sourced meals. These guys are right across the aisle from us and I noshed on their loaded lentil nachos today (VERY yum).
Agri-Cultured (find on Facebook at Agri-Cultured or Instagram at Agri-Cultured Foods): Sara transformed her own health with fermented foods and has blazed the trail with her traditionally cultured foods ever since. Add more ferments to your diet for gut health—their kombucha is a must!
HOQ: Usually set up outside, their breakfast burritos are Matty B and Turner's favorite and "everything is sourced locally except the salt and pepper."
La Mie: For your sweet tooth—everyone deserves a treat! Joe and Christina were the first folks to introduce me to 'local style' when I began go to their cafe/bakery yeeeears ago. Joe would bring by a complimentary piece of bread pudding and ask about my life and I swore off chain restaurants right then and there.
Hope to see you tomorrow, friends!
