Green Plate Special

La Cocinita

Tuesdays in December

Check out our weekly Green Plate Special at the Tuesday Market. Each month we invite a local chef to be our chef-in-residence. They dream up fresh, affordable plate lunches that showcase the local, seasonal ingredients available at the CCFM. Meet a friend for lunch, or pick up dinner & take a night off from cooking.

What’s Cooking?

Frencheeze is doing a victory lap at market this coming Tuesday, so come say goodbye by sinking your teeth into one last cheesy delight. For the remainder of December, we’re excited to have La Cocinita reunite with our Tuesday market. Stay tuned for their specials!

Frencheeze has treated us well these past few weeks. We laughed, we ate, we argued about which sandwich is our favorite, then we ate some more. They’ve assured us that their last hurrah at market shouldn’t be missed, so stop by to make some groceries and hang out for lunch. Stay tuned for December’s exciting Green Plate Special!

Frencheeze reminds us that we’re not too old for grilled cheese, but trust us, these aren’t your grandma’s classic melts. Complex combinations of decadent flavors fill the air whenever they come by our Tuesday market. They'll be at the market from 9am-1pm, so stop by for lunch and groceries when you get a chance! Check out their website for their full menu.

Frencheeze pulled up in style last week to kick off this month’s Green Plate Special. Within minutes of their arrival, the Frencheeze crew was whipping up decadent sandwiches fit for a king! Tuesday market runs until 1pm, so stop by for lunch and groceries when you get a chance! Check out their website for their full menu.

A new month means a new Green Plate Special. Frencheeze is back by popular demand and our mouths are already watering. Whether you prefer to reminisce with a classic grilled cheese or you want to indulge with The Gary (goat cheese, grape jelly, and applewood smoked bacon on a buttery crossiant), you’ll be glad you stopped by. Check out their website for their full menu.
