Folks stocking up for their Thanksgiving dinner this morning at the Menlo Park farmers market only had to put up with some occasional sprinkles – the heavy rain of yesterday over, at least for the moment.
Making her seasonal appearance at the market was Her Coconess aka Shelley Seward, the locally-based confectionaire. She’ll be back on December 12 and 19, selling her line of natural confections – almond rocky road with cocoa nibs, chocolate dipped espresso caramels, chocolate dipped salted caramels and sea salt peanut brittle. Her chocolates recently were awarded a first place gold for best comfort chocolate product at the San Francisco International Chocolate Salon.
Also sighted at the market – baskets of yams and sweets potatoes. Plus we checked in with fisherman Pietro Parravano to get his thoughts on the just opened crab season. “We’re off to a great start,” he said. “It looks like it’s going to be a great season.”
