Homegrown Marin Market

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Danya Adolphs the founder and Market Director of Homegrown Marin Market.

Danya started the market to give local food artisans a place to sell their unique culinary creations. It's not a Farmer's Market and it's not the church bake sale either.

You know those folks that are amazing cooks, the one's you always say "Hey you should sell that stuff!" Well these are those people. And some pros too. But mainly they are your Bay Area culinary wizards that just love creating in the kitchen.

Lucky for us there are organizations like Homegrown Marin where we can buy all the goodies.

Every month is a different group. You'll find everything from home-made crepe's, jams, jellies, breads, cheeses, coffee, barbeque and of course yummy baked goods.

The market takes place in San Rafael at the Marin Fencing Academy. Bring the family and your appetite. There's lots of yummy stuff to sample and purchase.

This month they have a special guest: Gabi Moskowitz.

Gabi Moskowitz, author of BrokeAss Gourmet
Gabi is a chef, writer and editor-in-chief of the blog BrokeAss Gourmet.  She will be there at 3pm to introduce her new iPad cooking app called Appetites.

Her blog features recipes that are always under $20. She also offers recommendations on different beers, wines and cocktails. She may just be my new bff!

There is a recipe on the blog right now for Pepperoni Pizza Spirals. They look like something Elli and her friends would just gobble right up.

And this....mac and cheese.

I hope she brings some mac and cheese to the market. THAT would be awesome.
