Let's do this one more time!

So at CapoPenn we've been doing the Sustainable Saturdays thing all summer. Sarah's been doing yeowoman's work getting us some awesome ingredients from hyper-local producers to pair up with UCity District's other events on every third Saturday. (Remember the honey from Woodlands Community Apiary? SO good.)

We've got one more special sorbetto for you to wrap up the summer--and it is time to wrap up the summer. (Didja kinda notice it was cool out this morning? Hello jeans! I have missed you, because you make me look GOOD.) So, directly from the folks at Mill Creek Urban Farm, we've got some super-sexy pears. Just a few! And they look REAL tasty. I'm hoping there'll be sorbetto left when I get in to close this jawn tomorrow night. Don't go eating all of it before I get here! And not that we'd make asparagus gelato (...I think), but I've got this intrinsic compulsion to share artistic pictures of produce in situ:

Conspicuously appropriated from the Mill Creek Website. Nice shot!

And Mill Creek really is our kind of place. Their vision statement, from the website: "We envision a world in which everyone has access to affordable, healthy, culturally appropriate food, and where local communities work collaboratively to build a food system that is socially just and environmentally and economically sustainable." To which we say, "Yeah, what they said!"

So listen, those jeans? Yeah, they're workin' for you. And the weather's definitely turning--which some of us heartily welcome. Saturday looks like a great day to take a walk, so come by and have food made where you live by people you know with ingredients you can pronounce!
