Dear Friends & AAFFA Members,
Many thanks to all of you who came out to the AAFFA Farmers Market season opener to dine, dance, play, and shop for farm-fresh-home-baked-hand-crafted goodies and treasure! We had such a FABULOUS time last Tuesday, we thought we’d treat you to a repeat performance this week!
AAFFA Farmers Market
Tuesdays 5-8 pm, June – August
402 North Murray Avenue at Tribble Street
There will be new vendors, and new crops coming into season … we are already hearing rumors about mushrooms and blackberries!
The patio will be open for dining, and this week’s featured restaurant will be Summa Joe’s! Joe will be joining our weekly regular, Grits & Groceries, serving up delicious meals to enjoy on our patio.
There is always live music, and this week we’ll be enjoying the sounds of local favorite, Sam Anderson!
Big news this week … The debut of the 2013 Market Chef competition!! Kicking off this year’s showdown will be chefs Troy Compton of McGee’s Irish Pub, taking on last year’s champion, Heidi Trull of Grits & Groceries. The ‘secret’ ingredient is always what can be found fresh from market vendors, but new rules promise a thrilling season of competition! Remember, you can taste and judge for just $2, but tickets are limited, so visit the AAFFA table early to purchase yours!
While you are there, pick up or re-new your annual AAFFA membership … it is your support that makes this all possible!
See you tomorrow!
