Crepinettes* are classic French pork sausages wrapped in caul fat, ready for pan-frying or grilling. There are approximately 5 sausages to a pound. Made with Niman Ranch pork, the crepinettes should be consumed within 3 days of purchase, or frozen immediately.

Moroccan Carrot and Saffron Soup* is made with sweet Riverdog Farm carrots, saffron, and a variety of exotic spices. The vegetarian soup will be sold in quarts and can be frozen for up to a month.

Made with high-quality organic durum wheat, Fresh Bronze-Cut Rigatoni Pasta*, is extruded through traditional bronze plates, resulting in more porous, rougher pasta that virtually begs sauces and seasonings to cling to it. With an incomparable chewy texture, bronze-cut catches flavor in its grooves like no other. The pasta will come in 1-pound boxes and is vegan-friendly(!).

Melissa Fernández of Fig and Miel will offer pints of Mole Verde Queretano, a fruity golden-green mole from the state of Queretaro. Made with fresh poblano chilies, tomatillos, almonds, peanuts and sweet spices, this mole is paired perfectly with fish or chicken. The mole should be used within 5 days or frozen for up to a month. Melissa will also be making her popular Mariquitas, or sweet and crispy plantain chips, along with a few batches of Empanadas.

Emily Su will be offering Shanghai-Style Red Braised Pork*, made with tender Niman Ranch pork shoulder, cooked with soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, scallions and star anise. The classic Chinese balance of savory and sweet, it makes a delicious and quick meal paired with steamed rice and some sauteed vegetables. It can be eaten fresh within 5 days or frozen for up to a month. Emily will also be making Vegetarian Spring Rolls* and Szechuan Pickles.

Now that strawberries and rhubarb are back in season, Chez Panisse pastry chef Stacie Pierce will offer 10-ounce balls of organic Buttery Tart Dough*, which can be rolled out at home to make sweet or savory tarts, galettes or crostatas. Stacie will also include a few recipes and cooking instructions with your purchase. The dough can be kept in the freezer for up to a month.

Mary Jo Thoresen and Curt Clingman of Jojo's Goodies will be offering two-packs of Tangerine-Grand Marnier Panna Cotta*, two-packs of 10-ounce Pizza Dough Balls* (recipe ideas included!), and Spring Garlic-Potato Gratin with Matos St. George Cheese*, which is fully cooked and needs only to be reheated.

Novella Carpenter of Ghost Town Farm will be offering some of her hyper-local produce, including leeks and escarole. She'll also be selling and signing copies of her hilarious memoir, Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer.

  1. My apologies, even with the reminder, I got the day wrong. I have been looking forward to my feast tonight. Was there any food lost due to my error, if so I will pay for it.
