Wow, what a crazy week! After nearly 6 days of being extremely sick, I think I’m starting to feel better! It was so weird, I felt like everyday was a new illness because it was all so random! First the flu, then a cold, then what felt like strep throat or tonsilitis, then back to the flu… it was insane. Not mention my loss of appetite, that’s always a strange one for me. I ❤ food.
Raw nut butters for sale! Only sold 2 mini. 😦
Look at all of the cans!
No, you’re a jerk. This is Scott’s jerk marinade. Oh my goodness, IT’S HOT! I actually tried it though and it was good.
Banjo band playing behind our stand. Nice music but having to scream the ingredients to our customers was not joyful.
The Jar Head Salsa guys are our good friends. Scott helps them with marketing and I eat the salsa.
This booth belongs to another good friend of ours. She is super talented and friendly!
I didn’t realize this at the time I took this picture but I totally know this family!
Our first attempt at making mustard. It was a hit! Although this is what broke my Vitamix (more on that later).
I love how I never have to buy soap again, I simply trade for it.
Lots of plants!
beautiful day at the market 🙂
I don’t like being a negative nancy on my blog (or in real life) but things just aren’t going “great”. I’m definitely not saying things are going bad, but honestly, Scott and I are starting to worry. I guess I really wouldn’t say “worry” but more “over thinking” if you will. We spend all of our money on food to prepare for the market, it’s actually extremely risky business because we never know what to expect! But people love us. & I know in my heart that God is always good. People like what we’re doing, they love seeing our new recipes we come up with and they love getting the chance to try new food. But we’re not really making money at the Market. What do we tell customers, “hey, buy our stuff so we can pay rent and not be homeless”. That will really make them want to come back. There is no doubt in our minds that we will continue to grow each week but, can we really keep up with buying new blenders and fancy jars to make the products the customer’s want to see? We really don’t know what to do! Except pray. Pray that we will get a few catering jobs just to help us grow a little more. Give thanks that we are extremely blessed to be living in such a great country in which we are able to do things like this. Be thankful for how much we have grown. And always stay hopeful because God is always good.
& With that said, we may have a new business opportunity coming up. Fingers crossed that they call back today.
