I have a friend thet is thinking of opening a booth in an inside farmer market. She is a great southern cook. What kind of dishes/products would you be interested in buying from a booth like thais?

    I will answer with Griebenschmalz anyway....

      I really thought that this might apply to all of great lakes. Thanks!

        Good...what farmers market is she going to be hitting up here then. Love southern cooking.

    2. my wife and I go to Eastern Market every Saturday, we take the kid and love when donuts come around and hot apple cider. They really don't have a lot of good food inside the Market in Detroit. I think they have some rule that it has to be prepared and brought in a professional kitchen.

      For my time and schedule, I need something I can grab fast and use one hand to eat. I use the other hand to point and pay and grab the bag for the stroller. Stuff like wraps, burritos, tacos would be great. I don't know what southern dishes are both one handed and comfort foods, but I would tell her that something along those line would be nice for most.

      1. BBQ- Southern style pulled pork, boiled peanuts, beans & greens (you can wrap up or taco-fy them like their doing to korean bbq out west). Po'boy sandwhich would always get my boat floating (as would an amazing muffaletta)
