TINY BUBBLES

You’ve seen a few Piaggio Vespas around town, but if you see a Piaggio Ape, it’s a decent bet that you’ve stumbled across Tiny Bubbles. Brandi and Jeremiah Esterline have adapted the postwar Italian vehicle to include taps. Want a chardonnay? A robust red? A round of beers? Tiny Bubbles is also for hire and they’re willing to fill the taps with your heart’s desires. Oh, and they also provide stellar charcuterie boards to round out the experience.

SAGE & ELM APOTHECARY

“Apothecary” is an archaic word that essentially means “pharmacist” (thanks Romeo and Juliet) and Sage & Elm carries on that denotative legacy. Handcrafted soaps, natural toothpaste, deodorant, face masks, shampoos and conditioners are among just some of the wares offered. These apothecaries also pack gift baskets that start at $30 and go up from there if you’d prefer to test drive a curated combination of items to treat yourself.

PUBLIC COFFEE

A tiny coffee shop on wheels. Actually, a tiny house with a coffee shop inside on wheels serving up simple or complex brews, whichever you may prefer. While seating inside is (obviously) limited, a cup of coffee and one of the stellar baked goods offered up by Public Coffee provide a much-needed refuel while perusing the rest of the farmers market. Oh, and there’s hot chocolate and tea for those who don’t need their mornings turbocharged with caffeine.

VATSANA’S

You’ve had hot sauce, but you haven’t really had hot sauce until you’ve tried Vatsana’s Seafood Hot Sauce. The name- sake uses traditional Asian ingredients like fish sauce and roasted rice powder to bring out its powerful flavors. While the company considers the spice level a five out of ten, timid eaters might want to tone it down a little at first. Also available are Desvelados Hot Sauce (a salsa verde - more of your traditional Hispanic and American style of hot sauce) as well as dry seasoning for rubs and cooking.
