This is week 3 of the fall show extravaganza, and I have 2 markets planned for this weekend.  On Saturday I’m heading to the Deep Ellum Market in Dallas.  This is my first time doing this new monthly market, but I hear it’s pretty good.  It’s right in the heart of Deep Ellum (by Cafe Brazil) and there will be live music.  And raffle prizes.  And a smart car rally cruising past.  AND it’s a free event.  If I wasn’t a vendor I’d be heading down there to check it out ’cause it sounds like a good time (hint, hint).

The Deep Ellum Market is from 11am – 5pm on Saturday at 2820 Indian Blvd.

Next up, the Beach St. Market.  This is a monthly market I have been doing on and off since the spring.  It’s always the third Sunday of the month, and it seems like every other third Sunday there is a holiday or something that prohibits me from attending.  Ok, last month I was on vaca, so I guess that’s a lame excuse for not going.  Anyhoo, I’ll be there this Sunday with some great local food vendors.  Last time there was a local Mexican restaurant there selling fresh tortillas and chips….soooo good.  I hear they’ll be there this time too (yea!).  That reminds me, I need to remember to bring a jar of salsa this time….

The Beach St. Market is this Sunday from 10am – 2pm at 3789 N. Beach St. in north Fort Worth

See you at the market!

This morning my products were on TV for the very first time!  I’m so ridiculously excited about it…even though the mention was all of 10 seconds.  I’m participating in a craft show this weekend called the Dallas Flea, and they are doing a bunch of press to promote it, including TV appearances.  I sent some of my products to the event coordinator (Brittany, featured in the video), and she picked my stuff to include on this morning’s appearance!  My products are featured about half way through the video, which I encourage you to watch here.

I’ll be available for autographs all week 🙂

Tomorrow is the first Saturday of the month, which means it’s New Public Market Day in Fort Worth.  This is my favorite monthly market – I wish it were more often.  For all you Fort Worth locals that haven’t checked it out yet, it’s at the corner of Hulen and Camp Bowie in the parking lot of the ‘Into the Garden’ store.  Everything at this market is locally produced within 150 miles of Fort Worth.  There are usually at least 10 different vendors, plus lots of other local stuff on hand.  A great selection of local produce, baked goods, tamales (my favorite!!), meat, cheese, homemade pasta, olive oil, honey and lots of other goodies. 

I’ll be there with the other local vendors braving the heat from 8-1, or until sell-out.  Would love to see you there!

This Sunday I’m doing an event at Lola’s Saloon in Fort Worth called the Panther City Bar Bazaar, and I’m pumped!  This is definitely the one of the most unique event I’ve done…it’s at a bar and there will be lots of live music all day.  Lots of my fellow Etsy Fort Worth members will be there as well, so thought I’d share the list of artisans in attendance.  Lots of great stuff!

There will also be several bands playing throughout the day – check out the list on the event Facebook page.

See you there!

Did you know that olives can grow in Texas?  I didn’t until this past weekend when I met Josh from the Texas Olive Ranch at the new public market in Fort Worth.  I thought olives only grew in fabulous far away places like the Mediterranean or Northern California (I think Northern California is fabulous, and it’s pretty far from Fort Worth).  Turns out I was oh-so wrong (an extremely rare occurence). 

basil infused olive oil from Texas Olive Ranch

 

Texas Olive Ranch is the only commercial olive oil producer in the lone star state, and they are cranking out some fabulous oils.  The ranch grows arbequina variety olives and has 40,000 mature olive trees on their farm in Carrizo Springs, about 100 miles south of San Antonio.  I tasted the lemon infused olive oil and ended up with a bottle of the basil – both are wonderful.  They have several other infused oils that sound great – next time I’m trying the rattlesnake cracked pepper and chipotle chili olive oil – yum.

 You can find their oils at a Central Market near you, or check their website for a list of all stores that stock their oils.
