Green Plate Special

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. The city's top chefs shop at the Market. Each month, they also take turns cooking there too.

August 2014 | Breads On Oak

August 19th

Breads On Oak pleased shoppers and staff alike with another great lunch menu this past Tuesday. And while the entrees were certainly popular, they couldn’t keep their chocolate chip cookies and coffee cakes on the table! So if you’re feeling like something sweet tomorrow, be sure to stop by early!

August 12th

Breads On Oak came to market last week with some delicious lunch fare. The vegan Veggie Cashew Tart with eggplant pesto was delicious! They’ve been bringing out baked goods for the sweet toothed market shoppers too. If you didn’t get to try their cinnamon walnut fig cake last week, don’t miss your chance this week!

August 5th

We’re excited to welcome Breads On Oak as our GPS vendors for the month of August! Open since June of 2012, Breads On Oak focuses on serving high quality artisanal breads made to “taste the way real bread used to taste like.” They also serve up an impressive list of vegan and gluten-free muffins, cakes, and other pastries, as well as soups and sandwiches from their 8640 Oak St. location. We can’t wait to see what they serve up at market. Come by this Tuesday to check it out for yourself!
