Just a quick heads up that ~NEW TASTE MARKETPLACE~ is turning one this Saturday November 19th, so come on by for a variety of edibles from local food artisans. The complete list of vendors can be found on newtastemarketplace.org. New this weekend: food art vendors will also be in the mix, including Allyson Thomas from the fab Drywell Art, and if you come by at 1pm or 3pm, CocoTutti will be leading a truffle making demo.

Bonus: sign up for free at Ourtisan.com and receive a special free food item from one of the New Taste Marketplace vendors. Can’t make it to the NTM? The site allows you to buy from the vendors online and have their products shipped directly to your door. New Taste Marketplace is a community market and a fundraiser for The Food Pantry and St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church. You can RSVP for free here. 12pm-5pm. St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, 500 De Haro St. at Mariposa.
