Vegfest 2014 ( VegMichigan) was another great succes for us this year! We saw many friends... like John and his daughter Elyce from Johnny Secreto Foods (Johnny Secreto Foods) with their AMAZING spice blends. They were serving up Mexicallia corn, Backyard Goodness green beans and Sultans Gold (my personal favorite spice blend. I put it on everything from veggies to bread!!) brussel sprouts. The spice blends are perfectly balanced, well flavored and versatile! You can find them here http://johnnysecreto.com/ourproducts.aspx. We also saw our friend Carson from Squeaky Green, LLC (Squeaky Green, LLC) who makes this enviromentally friendly laundry soap that makes your laundry smell like it was washed in a water fall and hung out side to dry. And it's so much more economical than the liquid. You can find out more here at http://www.squeakygreenonline.com/#!products/c161y. We also saw Mark and Erin from Pop Daddy Popcorn (Pop Daddy Popcorn) with their famous popcorn creations. It began with their olive oil and sea salt corn (Daddy-O) and then they introduced their sweet kettle corn style popcorn (Sugar Daddy). NOW they have added "Hot Daddy" and "Pepper Daddy" to their lineup. It is the freshest, most addictive popcorn we have ever tried. Is it bad to call it crack corn?? We met some new friends as well. Jay and Ross from JaynRoss Creations (JayNRoss Creations) make this amazing south indian spice relish that is just out of this world called Thokku. You can learn more here at http://www.jaynross.com/thokku.html. An amazing combination of sweet and heat and heat!! We also got to meet the girls from Gabby's Garden (Gabby's Garden) with their amazing line up of fresh, organic, gluten free and delicious salads! They were sampling three.. Kale Tabouli, Pure Protein and Moroccan Lentil. Oh.Em.Gee. I was simply amazed with these salads and ended up buying from them twice they were soo good.
The people attending Vegfest were engaging, polite and generous with their praise and conversation. We had several people come up to us and say "Oh! I am so glad you are here again this year!" and "We love your salsa, it's the only one we buy". We also had the honor of introducing many people to our salsa for the first time. It's always a compliment when they tell you "it's soo fresh. This came out of a jar?"
This is what we strive for!
The Vegfest is one of my favorite events of the year and I have already penciled next year on the calendar. Although, I think next year I am going to have to 'attend' the event rather than work it. Anyone want to cover my shift??
