Eatboutique Holiday Local Market, Saturday, Dec. 10
This looks interesting - local Holiday Local Market this coming Saturday, Dec. 10 from 11 am to 5 pm. Lots of locally made food (free samples - mmm!)
Island Creek Oysters will be there too & food writers - author Erin Byers Murray is going to be there - she wrote a book after working on the ICO oyster farm for 18 months.
I missed Eat Boutique's last foodie event - not going to miss this one. I know where I'm going to be Saturday. :D
I went to the last one not knowing too much about it beforehand, and was disappointed that it was mainly sweets and spices, with very little savory food. Think cupcakes, marshmallows, specialty granola care packages, a flavored salt bar, cookies, chocolates, pastries, etc.
Joanne Chang was there, however, and she was really gracious and fantastic as always. All in all, though, it was a very cutesy and dainty "OMG this is so perfect!!!" kinda event last time, which, if that's your thing, then great, but it wasn't mine. I'm sure having Island Creek there will make it much more interesting this time around.
Ah... cutesy & dainty I'm not, lol... hahaha - loved your description even if it is disheartening. :(
I am, however, a bit artsy-craftsy (and almost dirt poor, hahaha), so I'm hoping to get some holiday gift ideas (not to buy - but to put together myself). Inspiration, of sorts...
They seem to be just starting out w/these gatherings - hopefully it'll get beyond the cutesy level! But maybe I won't feel the same about it - will see.
