Happy Girl Kitchen Co.’s last day at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is December 24, as Todd and Jordan Champagne concentrate their efforts on their cafe and cannery in Pacific Grove. They will be dearly missed at the Ferry Plaza! CUESA wants to thank them for their years of support, fun times, and delicious, handcrafted pickles and jams. Read Todd’s fond farewell, and find out how you can stay in touch:

From Happy Girl Kitchen Co. (read the full announcement here):

We came to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays to share our handmade organic and locally sourced preserved pickles, jams, marmalades, tomato products, ferments, and famous lavender lemonade. I love the camaraderie from all of our market neighbors.

Farmers markets are the front lines for engaging the public in a show + tell that’s delicious and a challenge to the overpackaged and overplasticized industrial food regime. Its street theater and engaging with people to help change the food system one farmers market at a time has been a very powerful experience.

But now Happy Girl Kitchen has a café and cannery open every day in Monterey—just a few blocks from the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, where we have the chance to feed people wholesome meals with 100% of the ingredients sourced from local farms on our Central Coast EVERY DAY! The ripple effects are huge. Offering people a powerful choice in how they spend their dollars and create change in the food system continues to drive our vision.

I’m very honored to have met and worked with so many beautiful people at the market and our family will miss the weekly reunions—but anytime you are all welcome to visit our café and cannery open every day here in Monterey! Happy Girl Kitchen, 173 Central Ave., Pacific Grove, CA 93950 (open every day 7:30 AM to 5 PM), www.happygirlkitchen.com.
