This morning I noticed Knoll Krest eggs & pasta at the La Tiendita stall in the Essex Street Market, as well as some (stored) apples from Breezy Hill Orchards. Turns out the Lower Eastside Girls Club is hooked up with Breezy Hill this year to bring some of the same good food we’re eating to more people in the neighborhood.
Not only is the Essex Street Market my favorite place to shop, but the Girls Club is a great organization with a bakery called Sweet Things on Ave. C.
When you buy from The Lower Eastside Girls Club you are doing more than consuming a cookie. Your purchase supports programs that teach inner-city girls culinary arts and business skills. Girls in the Sweet Things Company also participate in educational support and leadership training programs.
(Though, just to be fair, you should also know about the great eggs from Indian Run-Shady Maple Run available at Saxelby Cheesemongers just a few stalls down from La Tiendita at Essex Street.)
