Friday notes

The Farmers Market is hitting its stride right now, and here are three good reasons to stop by tomorrow:

  1. The Culinary Arts program of the CACC is doing their annual omelet fundraiser. A couple of these kids are going to the national competition, and this event helps fund their trip. Your omelet-makings are listed after the jump and as always, consider stopping by during school hours and buying some of their excellent stocks, soups and cured meats. If you don’t make it out tomorrow, you have a second chance on Sunday. Details below.
  2. Missouri Legacy Beef will be selling steaks at 10% off tomorrow – 15% off if your name starts with “M.” Best beef at the market in my opinion.
  3. Blade Runner Sharpening. Your knives probably aren’t as sharp as they should be and it makes cooking less fun, more difficult and even more dangerous (pushing a dull knife through an onion takes more pressure, leading to slips and cuts). Drop them off with Corby and then do the rest of your shopping. Chances are the knives will be ready by the time you get back.

THIS Saturday and Sunday Rain or Shine we will be hosting two fundraisers to help send our Missouri State Champions Will Kinney (Culinary) and Mallory Barnes (Baking) to the National Contest.

 

Saturday May 5th from 8:00 – 12:00 we will be cooking omelets at the Columbia Farmer’s Market (between the Arc and West Jr. High School).

We will be located in the large tent just to the South of the main vender rows on the grass.

 

Sunday May 6th from 9:00 – 1:00 we will be cooking omelets and selling baked goods at the North Village (located just North of Walnut and Orr street in the Wabash Bus Station parking lot)
