Christine Casey has extended a generous and unique invitation to our market goers to bring their purchase of Pearson Peaches from the market to her home for a community peach cobbler making activity. Here, let Christine explain.
"My family lives right on the park next to the market. Next week we will open our home to all who want to make fresh peach cobbler on the spot! I will have some disposable foil pans - or bring your favorite baking dish. I will supply all the fixings except the peaches, which will be available at the market. Bake your cobbler onsite or take it home to bake later.
My mom grew up in a small village in Greece during World War II. At that time they had a communal oven where everyone gathered throughout the day to bake their crusty bread, fresh-caught fish, or hearty casserole of just picked dandelion greens. Then they'd "pame volta" (take a stroll) to the taverna and share stories late into the night. That's community!
We moved to Norcross to capture a little bit of Southern "Greek" Mayberry and haven't been disappointed. So don't be shy - come meet some neighbors, make new friends, and have a cup of coffee (at my house or wander over to 45 South).
Mark your calendars - on Saturday 25th -- "pame volta" from the market vendors to the all brick house next to the park (61 College St). I'll post a reminder as it gets closer.
If all goes well, next time we'll make baklava with pecans from the market (I promise it is super easy). Yassas!
RSVP appreciated - text or call 403-481-0725 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't worry if your plans change, the RSVP will help with planning and supplies. Conversely, If you don't RSVP but would like to join at the last minute, just stop by."
Now how's that for being a good neighbor and helping create community among our market shoppers?
Be sure and join us in thanking Chris and family.
