Hello masa friends!!
I’m in the middle of holiday planning and deeply absorbed in tamale texts and recipes. Maybe we’ll see tamales, in some form, this Thanksgiving and Christmas. In the meantime, here’s a quick update about our upcoming dates/events/pop-ups, whatever you want to call them.
I am excited to announce that I will be at Oaktown Spice Shop (OSS) on Saturday October 23rd! OSS has been an insanely supportive retail partner for several months and this is my first time at their Oakland store. I did my first OSS event at their Albany store in June, and then at their Castro Valley store in July. If you ever want salsa macha, know that every OSS location has it on hand—I’m trying my best to keep up with production, but scaling isn’t my strong suit. I’m more of a dreams and ideas guy, not so much a production guy. Plan on going to the Grand Lake Farmer’s market, picking up some produce from Raised Roots, a bagel from Poppy’s, coffee from Red Bay, and then head to Oaktown for some masa and salsas. That’s an ideal Saturday.
No Markets / Orders Next Week — I’ll be in Colorado the week of October 11th-17th — get some extra tortillas and tlacoyos this week, they freeze well.
