Funky Friday Farmers Market at BADSEED - FRIDAYS in the CROSSROADS - 4-8pm




Howdy Frozen Friends -

Happy New Year! I hate to rub it in, but this local farmer managed to escape the cold & ice for a few weeks. I am currently in the magical lands of California in my old stomping grounds - glorious San Francisco. But, my dearest "eaters", don't you worry. The BADSEED Farmers Market will go on in my absence this Friday from 4:00 - 8 PM. Our die-hard gang of gregarious growers have desperately missed you these last couple weeks and are eager to share the organic "fruits of their labor" for the betterment of your belly......

I have to say that when I first moved back to the midwest from years of world travel and San Francisco nights I was terrified. I imagined a land- locked existence lacking culture, cuisine, west-coast energy, and liberalism. Then I dug my hands in that blessed KC dirt, grew food, connected with you, and fed you. I found freedom and liberty at the root. Today, 4 years later, I am standing in this great City of my past. The place that seduced my very soul, that encapsulated my entire youth, and humored my idealism. The wind from the San Francisco Bay is blowing through my hair and the energies of this nation's most beautiful city are pumping through my veins. I am a farmer and a foodie surrounded by some of the world's most fertile valleys and finest cuisine. BUT alas, I am unmoved! I simply miss my chickens, my husband, my canned goods, and my dirt! Oh well, ain't life funny.......just promise to have a damned good time for me this Friday @ the BADSEED!!!!!
