Get a Taste of the Mulberry Street Market

Get a Taste of the Mulberry Street Market

By popular demand, the Mulberry Street Market vendors will be providing prepared samples of products from a cross-section of the market.

Davis Farms and The Little Farm are partnering with Southern Swiss Dairy and Rocking Chair Ranch to demo a full meal prepared from market goods that visitors will be able to sample and decided if they want to make it for themselves at home.

This is a perfect way to stir the imagine for what types of new flavors can be found while still using the food that is so familiar to us.

And of course, you can still find the usual market wares of fresh vegetables, salad greens, herbs, sprouts, baked goods, meat, and dairy.

Be sure to sign up for the Market newsletter for a full menu.

The Mulberry Street Market takes place Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. in Downtown Macon in front of the Grand Opera House. It is co-sponsored by the City of Macon Main Street Program, Macon Roots, and Community Health Works. 

Amanda Pearl: The Interview

Amanda Pearl: The Interview

So, I first ran across Amanda Pearl via Twitter… not exactly sure of the details other than that. For those of you who are not familiar with her and her designs then you are sadly missing out. Many of her items have been featured on the hit t.v. show “Gossip Girl.”

In a world where many go for the cheap, quick fashions- Amanda Pearl embodies everything that is exquisite about fashion: artistic, unique, craftsman style quality that none can hold a candle to. These rich designs are inspired of an era long ago, thankfully bringing back everything that was good and tasteful to fashion. It’s very easy to put together a design without much thought, and caving in to whatever aesthetic is most popular at the time but Amanda Pearl has stuck to her own vision and luckily, the fashions have moved with it.
