Want to taste the wares of talented local vendors while doing good for the community? You’ll have two chances at ~NEW TASTE MARKETPLACE~, a community market and fundraiser for The Food Pantry and St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church to be held Saturday November 27th, noon-5pm, and Saturday December 18th, 4pm-9pm, at St. Gregory’s. Over 30 vendors—street food carts, confectioners, bakers, and more—will be offering everything from pickles and preserves to pig, duck confit, sausages, and cupcakes.

The vendor lineup for this Saturday is quite an exciting list with lots of prospects for holiday shopping and eating. Here are some examples: handmade chocolate truffles from Christine Doerr of Neo Cocoa, assorted cheeses made with Straus Family Creamery milk from Jordan Grosser of Flosa Creamery, ramen to-go boxes from Richie Nakano of Hapa Ramen, and organic vegan ice cream from Sarah Smart of Rocket Ship Ice Cream.

The sliding scale entrance fee of $0-10 benefits The Food Pantry and St. Gregory’s. The Food Pantry gives away tons of fresh food to more than 600 families every Friday.
