Pizza Hippo Goes to Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day

Today is the Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day.

"What is this?" you ask. It's the day where everyone who wants to take part in the market shows up with product to be judged by a very, how do I say, tightly... knit group of folks who run the show.
Its a little nerve wracking as these things have a reputation for being political and similar to Greek Rush week. As you may or may not know, I never rushed. Draw your own conclusions as to why ;) Hopefully, these are just rumors, everyone will be pleasant, and we'll get accepted without being hazed.
Regardless, Amber and I will be there today with bells and smiles on. Below is the document we're attaching to our food, which by rule cannot speak for itself today. Check it out.

Exciting stuff! Hope you'll be doing some direct marketing during market season. You have some excellent sourcing, and the pizzas sound delicious. Good luck!

Caroline, excellent last name!  We're already doing quite a bit of direct marketing, and will be doing more as soon as we're officially a part of this and other markets.  Please check out www.pizzahippo.com for more up to the date info, and thank you for your support!
