Menu for the Week of April 23, 2012 — Grant Park Farmers’ Market Begins Sunday!

Two down, one to go!  Thank you to all of the vendors and patrons of the  East Atlanta Village Farmers’ Market for an amazing opening season day last Thursday!   And to our Grant Park Farmers’ Market family, we are looking forward to seeing you this Sunday!  Hard to believe, but  by the time the sun sets this Sunday, all three of our markets will be in full swing.  We certainly are looking forward to a wonderful and healthy market season.

Speaking of hard to believe, it’s mind-boggling that May 1st is just a week away.  But we couldn’t be more excited because May 10-13th, Atlanta will host its second annual Food & Wine Festival in Midtown!  If you missed it last year, it was an absolute blast, and Kevin is thrilled to have been asked back this year to teach another seminar on Sunday.  This time the theme is Cured Pairings, where The Spotted Trotter will take you on a meat, cheese, and wine-pairing journey you’ll not soon forget.  Busy on Sunday and can’t make the seminar?  No worries!  The Spotted Trotter is expanding its level of participation this year and will also be featured Saturday on THE WHOLE PIG TRAIL, a nose-to-tail experience curated by Kevin Gillespie of Woodfire Grill!  Is your mouth watering yet?

Don’t wait too much longer to buy your tickets, and Stay Hungry Atlanta!
