East Atlanta Village Farmers Market Meet & Greet at Urban Cannibals Tonight – Thursday, April 21, 2011
Three of my favorite local vendors will be on hand tonight at Urban Cannibals for a special East Atlanta Village Farmers Market Meet & Greet, tonight – Thursday, April 21, 2011 – from 4:00 until 7:00 PM! Highlighting the EAV Farmers Market 2011 vendors, tonight’s event will feature Phickles Pickles, a gourmet pickle company from from Athens, GA, Big Daddy Biscuits, an all-natural dog treat company in Atlanta, and Just Add Honey, a lifestyle tea boutique from Atlanta.
Here’s a little bit about these three vendors:
- Phickles Pickles – gourmet pickle creations of Athens locals, Phin and Angie Tillman, these spicy, vinegar-y treats are some of my favorite meal garnishes and hostess gifts! So many varieties to choose from, like okra (“Okies”) and carrots (“Stix”), green tomatoes (“Wedgies”) and jalapeños (“Hotties”), and more – you’ll fall in love with Phickles and their creators. They’ve even converted some of my self-professed non-pickle-lovers into Phickles Phans!
- Big Daddy Biscuits – all-natural and organic dog biscuits, made with “human-grade” ingredients and will satisfy even the most finicky pup! Flavors like You Had Me At Bacon Turkey Bacon Bites, Flee Flea Cheese Bites with Garlic, and Crunchy Peanut Butter, and even Dinner Mints, made with activated charcoal to aid digestion, each biscuit is handmade by head biscuit-maker Lauren Janis, and earns the seal of approval from Big Daddy himself.
- Just Add Honey – natural, pure and easily recognizable ingredients go into every handcrafted flavor of tea from this Atlanta tea company. Thoughtfully-blended loose-leaf teas make this more than a tea company – it’s a lifestyle tea boutique!
And of course, there will be others on hand, too. Others from the 2011 season will be there, as well; a partial list of EAV Farmers Market vendors for 2011 includes: Urban Cannibals Bodega + Bites, AtlantaFresh Creamery, Greenleaf Farms, Hidden Spring Farms Honey, Sweet Georgia Grains Granola, H&F Bread Co., King of Pops, Love is Love Farm, and Riverview Farms Grassfed Beef.
Urban Cannibals will provide bites and refreshments and you can mingle with the EAV Farmers Market Vendors, learn about their products and give them your wish-lists and pre-orders! The EAV Farmers Market season starts Thursday, May 5 in its new location – at the parking lot behind the Midway Pub in the East Atlanta Village – so come down tonight to meet the vendors and plan your spring and summer shopping!
