Other points of interest that didn't make the story ...
The Tennessee Flea Market on Winchester was absolutely hopping yesterday. Tons and tons of people and quite a bit of food too.
In addition to a pretty big food court with a Lenny's, home-cooking and barbecue restaurants and lots of corndogs, there are booths selling ice cream, Bavarian and German nuts, soups and dip mixes, flavored ices, etc.
Pam got a box of slightly expired Kashi cereal for 50 cents at a booth selling discount groceries. There were Moon Pies and salad dressing and nuts and organic products ... a little bit of everything.
YoLo Midtown unveiled its five finalists in the Project Green Fork Gelato Contest yesterday, and the results were delectable, local, and totally grassroots.
After receiving 115 (!) gelato flavors, Margot McNeeley of Project Green Fork narrowed down the choices to the few that best represented PGF’s local, sustainable bent. Out of eight that were tested in actual gelato form, only five made the cut:
Dad’s Jack, created by the mysterious and otherwise unidentified “Dad” — organic ginger root and Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey reduction.
Anna’s Afternoon Amusement, by Anna Hatfield — Dinstuhl’s caramel and sea salt blended into McCarter coffee gelato.
Come Home, Honey, by Olivia Wilmot — local honey from Hughes Apiaries mixed into pistachio gelato.
Dining with Green Monkeys, by Stacey Greenberg — green tea gelato steeped with Jones Orchard apple butter.
Pearadise Lost, by Davis Kidd Booksellers — Jones Orchard pear preserves in pear sorbetto.
Pour one out for the Midtown Piggly Wiggly. She's done.
In the Pig's place: Cash Saver Cost Plus Food Outlet. (That name is just made for chanting ... try it.)
