Menu for the Week of October 14, 2013 — Fulton County Loves Small Businesses and You Should Love CFM!

When you’re 150% focused on something, like building a business, sometimes you wonder whether the institutions you interact with on a semi-regular basis are cognizant of the hard work it takes to wear the numerous hats required of small business owners.  That can certainly be the case when you’re trying to navigate the waters of local government, upon which we so heavily rely to answer questions as we learn new lessons not before they happen, but often as they present themselves (at the worst possible time usually).  Well, this week, it seems like our “I wonder if” questions have been answered because we’ve just learned that The Spotted Trotter has been selected to receive the Fulton County New and Emerging Small Business Award!  We were nominated by our friends at Invest Atlanta, and we thank our new partners so much for the humbling acknowledgment.  As they say — “It’s an honor just to be nominated!,” but let’s be honest it also feels really good to win!  So, this Wednesday, Kevin will attend a special presentation at the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to receive the award along with several other small businesses.  Thank you Fulton County for recognizing the hard work and entrepreneurial spirit of small business owners!

And speaking of spirit — congrats to the Community Farmers Markets, Inc. (the organization responsible for running East Atlanta, Grant Park, and the Decatur farmers markets) for a successful second annual Tour de Farm event this past weekend!  We were lucky enough to be asked to host the biking group at TST on Saturday for lunch, and we had a blast talking to the bikers about what we do and filling their bellies to sustain them on the second half of their Saturday ride.  If you didn’t attend this year, definitely mark your calendars for next year, and if you’re impatient like us and can’t wait a whole extra year for a beautiful Fall weather event, consider visiting the amazing Frolona Farm Fall Feast on October 27th.  Tickets are available now and it’s going to be absolutely amazing!   All proceeds of the dinner will go to support CFM, its mission, and its amazing farmers!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
