Ask and You Shall Receive

I've had the following two big food-related requests in my mind recently:
  • An artisan pizza place, a little bit like Racanelli's, but with more fresh and higher quality ingredients. Enter Sammy's Pizza, a joint project between two Racanelli brothers. If the bit in Sauce's Gossip page is true, it will be terrific.
  • A grocery store selling only Missouri products, preferably with a sustainable and organic focus. I love Local Harvest, but I've been wanting something a bit bigger. Again, according to Sauce's Gossip page, this too will come true as Sappington Farmers' Market has a new ownership structure which is all about the small Missouri farmer. I wasn't too keen on SFM before because there really wasn't much of a local focus, even though it was marketed that way.

Yay! I can't wait!

I was so disappointed this summer by the Sappington Farmers market. It was like a bad, low-end grocery store with produce on foam trays and a worse selection of food than my parents grocery in the hood. I'd love to see them get Missouri products in the store!

Okay, I had to heavily edit my few sentences about SFM because I didn't want to be too mean.

In addition to MO foods and a better selection, I also hope they get rid of the foam trays and give the store a good cleaning. I mean a DEEP cleaning. I only went once because the smell of the store permeates all of its food and is GROSS.


Let's hope the new owners seriously turn it around.

Have you tried 3 Monkeys yet? They do woodfired pizzas. It wasn't totally my cuppa, but you might like it.
