My friend, CityMinx has been commending Breads Bakery to me for months and it just so happened that they were the very first booth I spotted. While I couldn’t try their stellar looking babka because of the nut factor, their challah was swoon worthy—perfectly light and airy, I can’t wait to go back and get a whole loaf.
Speaking of breads I want to go back and get more of: Jack's Chedbred. This isn’t your average cornbread. The cheddar was made of a 3 year aged VT cheddar and was, dare I say it, cheesetacular. Also a big fan of the roasted jalapeno and the honey and sea salt, which reminded me of my favorite crumb cakes. Can’t wait to check these guys out at the Smorg.
I was especially excited to see Askinosie Chocolate. Askinosie is an exceptional bean to bar, small batch artisanal chocolate producer out of Missouri. Their chocolate has racked up tons of accolades including several Sofi awards, but it’s their mission that’s truly incredible. Each bar of chocolate is 100% traceable. They know and work closely with all the farmers that farm their beans and the social impact that the company has had in their own community and the communities that farm their cacao beans has been incredible. This is truly a treat you can feel good about buying, sharing and eating.
Last but not least, the Sno Balls from Imperial Woodpecker are the perfect end of the day treat for when you want something cool and fresh to cleanse your palate after all the goodies. I went for their Grapefruit Basil, which was light and summery, fresh and refreshing.
Now this was just a handful of the many vendors that will be there this weekend. I didn't get to try nearly all the vendors I wanted which makes all the more reason for me to head back this weekend...
