Now that the first fall rains have materialized, the
prospect of the Holidays does not seem so far-fetched. It was hard to imagine
with that 75 degree weather. Grateful we are for the wonderful moisture that
has settled the perpetual dust and set the creeks to running. The Thanksgiving
frenzy which we are experiencing right now will fizzle out after we consume our
yearly mega- meal, and we will be able to concentrate on the less hectic
holidays (for us) of December.
Our addition to the kitchen and offices is in full progress.
We are excited about our newly enlarged kitchen which will help the café with
its problems revolving around getting the soup, sandwiches, and salads out in a
timely manner. We will be featuring two soups every day, one vegetarian and one
with meat. We have a new Panini-maker which should get hot sandwiches out in
less than 5 minutes. And our local baker Hellagood is starting to supply us
with gluten-free baked goods, filling a need that was opened when Katherine
Sterngold (Sugar Kat) moved to Santa Rosa.
The GMO labeling law did not pass in Washington State in a
recent election. Once again the Monsanto
Corporation poured millions of dollars into the campaign using the same tactics
that were used in California to defeat the law. They told the public, in an
inundation of TV ads and flyers, that labeling the food would raise food prices
and that the law was poorly written and would cause confusion and economic hardship.
Interestingly, the ads never mentioned the issue at hand: the fact that the
public has the right to know what is in their food. It amazes me that in this “media
age” most people know very little about genetically modified foods and are
blissfully ignorant of the impact they have on our environment. Recently, I
read an article which stated that the REAL weapons of mass destruction were
genetically modified foods, pesticides, and excessive carbon emissions (CO2). It’s
unfortunate that we can’t seem to focus on the things that will affect us in
the most negative ways.
Sarah and Aaron have collaborated on a Gluten-Free Holiday
Guide that is available to our customers at the check-out stands. This helpful
little hand-out lists many of the available gluten -free alternatives for
holiday cooking and tells you where they are located in the market. It includes
some cooking tricks and recipes.
Just a reminder: Our food drive for the Food Bank will
continue until Christmas. Please clean out your cupboards or donate food items
from our store. There are a lot of people in Willits that will greatly
appreciate you donations. Our obligation to our community is most important.
Mariposa Market will be adhering to a modified holiday
schedule. We will close our doors at 3 PM on Christmas Eve and be closed all
