It's the height of the season at the farmer's markets, and it rocks. Stands explode with color, overflowing with stonefruit, berries, peppers, zucchini, and greens like a painted tableau of abundance. Summer in the Bay Area may bring fog and fickle weather, but you sure can't complain about the produce.
It's also festival season, and we've been so busy preparing for last weekend's Eat Real Festival in Jack London Square that we forgot to blog about it. Suffice it to say, the sun was out, the streets were packed with the beautiful people of Oakland, and we're pooped.
Speaking of rock, though, we are looking forward to sell at the Webster Street Jam in Alameda. The festival is the weekend of Sep 11th and 12th, 10-6 on Sat and 10-5 on Sun, on (guess what) Webster Street between Central and Lincoln. Come on out y'all, because this is a really fun street fair that includes food, crafts, beer, wine, jumpy houses for the kiddies, rock climbing walls, and two stages of live music---one of which will contain yours truly (Jenya) playing in a Tom Waits cover band on the afternoon of the 12th. That's right, I'll make your sandwich and entertain you as well. See you there!
