What Ellen Jaffe J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Thanks everyone who attended! Once again, Fresh Market outdid themselves with their donated food! We had three different soups and quinoa. We had a little last-minute challenge moving everything inside away from the wild/crazy wind, but it was better than having lettuce all over the yard. ;) We'll do this one more Monday at my Monday 11-12:30. Three "Send You Off to Summer Salads!" Fresh, beautiful produce and food donated one more time by Fresh Market. Thank you!!! I'll post details on the Bradenton meet-up too.
