|Early Spring? April in Minneapolis|
While it is hard to believe that Ma Nature hasn't eased her grip on winter, we certainly beg to differ. However, Spring will come, and that means the opening of Farmers Market season won't be far behind. The cold and snow do give us a chance to sit down (where it's warm and comfy) and reflect on what has transpired of the course of the winter season.
After being in business for over nine years, Terry and I were sure we had seen everything. However, nothing could prepare us for how popular a number of our products have recently become in the Twin Cities area. Demand for our Tranquility Chai, Traditional Wild Rice Bread, Oh My Goddess! Butter Crunch Toffee and our entire line of Aww Nuts! products, in particular, has reached an all-time high in both winter market and indoor show response. Here's just one of the product testimonials that we have recently received:
"I love your Tranquility Chai tea! At my office, I call it my adult hot chocolate. Its just the right pick me up after a hard meeting or on a day when I know I could use a little additional focus on taking care of myself."

As a result of this upsurge in popularity, we have also had more interest from potential wholesale partners in the area as well. And for that, we thank you all for your support.
During the Winter months, Terry and I have appeared at several venues including the Richfield, Blaine and Plymouth Winter Markets. We have also participated in and were well received at the XOXO Valentine's Market at the Modist Brewing company in Minneapolis, the annual Spring Vendor Show at Rosemount High School, and a special Winter Art Fair and Flower show at the Minnesota Arboretum. We were also pleased to supply tasty goodies for the Minneapolis Uban League's annual brunch, as well as supplying products for Home Essentials' Spring show. With everything going on in the first quarter, as well as in the business of life, I'm sure you'll forgive us for our absence from our blog!
As I mentioned earlier, Farmers Market time is hastily descending upon
That's about it for now. Here's to health, prosperity, and happiness to us all in 2018. Stay safe, stay warm, and stay Blessed!
