The Urban Grocery’s one-year anniversary is coming next Wednesday, October 27. Mark your calendar for cake and ice cream!
The market is looking for decorated cake makers and ice cream churners to help with the celebration. Think you have the chops? Bakers, you are required to make a cake creatively decorated with a market theme (any size; cream cakes are not allowed per county regulation). Ice cream makers, the market prefers that you highlight a local ingredient in your batch (can serve up to 200 samples; must have permit from the MCESD).
A cake display, ice cream sampling and informal voting for the best will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. next Wednesday.
Weekly special: 10% off all Pillsbury Wines. New “Wild Child” red and white varieties are now available!
T-Day special: 30% off Grateful Spoon Gelato for all CSM card holders.
