Raw Milk, Chickens, And Vegan Cookbooks at Tomorrow's Produce Project Pop-Up
Last month we wrote about the new Produce Project pop-up farm stand that graces Handsome Roasters' beautiful modern space every Wednesday evening. Shaheda Sadhal, one of the market's organizers,
volunteered with Santa Monica Farmers' Market Supervisor and "Good Food" correspondent Laura Avery for several years before she and her business partner, Sarah Delevan, got the idea for the Produce Project.
The market is going strong in the Arts District, and tomorrow the veg-happy organizers will be offering up signed copies of Joeseph Schuldiner's new Pure Vegan cookbook. Schuldiner is also the organizer of the Alta Dena Farmers Market and a fixture in the Altadena community, which is quickly becomingground zero for gourmands.
For those who aren't living animal-free, but would like mindfully-sourced meats, the Produce Project is bringing in young whole chickens (3 - 3.5 lbs. at $16 each) from Lily's Eggs in Santa Barbara. They're also carrying raw milk and butter, which have come a hot commodity since the raid of Venice's Rawesome shop. If you are interested in either of these, though, you need to order by 3 p.m. today on their site. Otherwise, just breeze on by from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.
