Join us as we welcome two vendors to the market: 1) Steve & Cat Elliott of Elliott Grows return to the CFM after a move and re-establishing their crops of beautiful hydroponic lettuces, greens and basil. 2) Gilbert Garcia of Apetito Co. brings his Barbacoa Sauce, a top shelf Texican sauce that was perfected by his family and passed down for several generations. This rich tomato-based sauce can be used as a marinade, barbeque sauce or addition to beans and other dishes.
Market eggs are from free range hens. Beef, pork, chicken and lamb meats are all hormone and antibiotic free, raised and finished in grassy, open pastures. Seafood is fresh from the Gulf.
