Pop-Up Little Farm Fresh Farm Stand is coming to Fiore Market Cafe

We are looking to bring Jennifer and James from Little Farm Fresh to Fiore Market Cafe on Tuesday afternoons from 3:00 to 5:00pm. They’ll set up their farm stand for two hours. Little Farm Fresh is a fantastic urban farm where Jennifer and James grow some really unique vegetable and herbs. They currently sell their produce at three farmer’s markets in the LA area.

We plan to get started in the next few weeks. Hope you’ll stop by to check it out.

We have been more than a little obsessed with tomatoes and figs. The season will end soon, but offer them until the bitter end. The tomato sandwiches have been a huge hit. We’ve been so lucky to get local tasty tomatoes.

We’ll have the tomato sandwich again tomorrow. I got some heirloom tomatoes from the farmer’s market in Beverly Hills and some miniature heirlooms from Jennifer and James.

Last Night’s Jam Class

We had a great jam class last night. Thanks to Greta Dunlop from the South Pasadena Farmer’s Market for her guidance with our first jam class. Hopefully we can put this class in the rotation with the other classes that we offer at Fiore Market Cafe.

Here are quite a few photographs from the class. Mackenzie took the photographs for us. Hope you enjoy them.

Because of the jam class we now have jams on the counter for sale. We have a classic strawberry jam and a fig conserve with green chili from the garden. Both are $7.50 a jar.

Working on having the pork belly sandwich with the fig conserve for Friday and Saturday.

We are almost completely out of the garden tomatoes. How did that happen so fast?

I plan to offer two classes in September. The bread class and pizza class. I will have the dates posted by Sunday night.

Tomato Sandwiches

Last week I mentioned the story behind the tomato sandwiches. My cousin Dan taught me how to make the tomato sandwich over 35 years ago. Well it turns out, according to his older brother Terry their old man, my uncle, their father Vince taught them  how to make the tomato sandwich. All along I thought Dan was the culinary genius of the Gallagher household, but it turns out it was his Papa. Bravo, Uncle Vince, Bravo. Thanks for the inspiration that found it’s way to our little cafe in South Pasadena.

More tomatoes arrived today. We’ll have tomato sandwiches again tomorrow.

Our first jam class is tomorrow. We do have a full class, but I will make the class flyer available to everyone on Wednesday.

Here are a few photographs from today.
