the prettiest pears, local oysters shucked to order, heirloom beans like the gorgeous "tiger beans" on the left from Lonely Mountain Farm, rainbow chard, and then Icelandic poppies by the bucket full and dahlias lingering

After catching up with friends at the Eat Real Festival I headed over to the Atelier Dion Kickstarter kickoff party/sample sale. I picked up the tin can set that I've wanted for a year or two. I love their colored clay cups and the dice above are pretty sweet too. You can help support their kickstarter here.
I started the busy weekend off with the Eat Real Festival on Saturday morning with cheese grits topped with bacon and greens Sugarfoot Grits. Finally got to try a horchata latte and then cooled down with an avocado and kefir lime pop from Fat Face. I kept coming across this THX Oakland stencil, kudos to whoever is behind it.

There was a small "microhood" or neighborhood festival tonight with discounts or giveaways at local stores. The winner of the evening was Tommaso's since they generously gave out a slice of lasagna with a glass of wine and just around the corner from them on Broadway near Columbus was this fella playing the piano as the world passed by.

Loving Cup this time to fill my jar up with coconut rice pudding. I was thrilled to see the Flying Disc Ranch date farmers at the farmers market after being away for two months while the new season of dates came in. Their dates are amazing and they ship. Walking around the date farm being seeing the cholla blossoms at Joshua Tree followed with the best BBQ dinner and live music at Pioneer Town made for such an amazing day. I'm planning on a date shake for breakfast this week.
