Food and Family

We really truly love our farmers and this week want to make sure that you all know the very best accompaniment to the fresh vegetables they are growing for you- Black Eyed Pea Hummus!

Meet the mother/son team of That Brown Girl Cooks!, Chef Kristi Brown and Damon Bomar.  That Brown Girl Cooks! is based out of south Seattle; providing education opportunities for families, creating neighborhood pop-ups, offering catering services and adding their magic to their black-eyed pea hummus!  Check out their website to learn more about how this team is healing the community through healthy and delicious food, imagination, tradition and culture.  Pick up their hummus at any of these local spots, it will become your carrot’s new best friend!

I met Kristi about five years ago when we were both working at a small farmers market on First Hill.  Kristi’s vision and love for what she is doing truly inspired me and her’s was one of the voices in my head when I started out to discover what a mobile farm stand might look like.  She is now looking to grow her business further and is participating in the Impact Pitch competition, which will provide funding to local business owners based on community feedback.  Please take a minute and listen to Kristi and Damon talk about the work they are doing and vote here!

I can not wait to see, and taste, what they do next!
