Williams-Sonoma Artisan's Market at Lenox Mall - Talking With Tami

Williams-Sonoma Artisan’s Market at Lenox Mall

July 6th, 2011

On July 2, I made my way down to Williams-Sonoma for the Artisan’s Market at Lenox Mall. I had a lovely time meeting all the vendors with their fabulous and tasty products! It was an exclusive and exciting event, and I learned so much. I even ran into comedian Pierre, who was sampling Sweet Grass Dairy cheese. He said it was good.

You guys know that I’m a foodie, so many of the samplings I had were very tasty. I loved how Williams-Sonoma brought in local farmers and artisans to the store so that customers could meet them and put a face with who was behind the brands. One of my favorite artisans is Angie Tillman and her Phickles Pickles! I tried the pickled green beans and bought a jar to take home because they were so yummy and tangy! I kept making faces because they were tart, but then I kept saying, “Let me try one more!” (lol). Angie was a delight to talk to and it’s a family-owned business out of Athens, Ga. Chef and Author Virginia Willis was cooking up something amazing and has a new cookbook out called Bon Appetit.

Y’all, I am also a tea drinker and enjoyed Braswell Food Company’s refreshing iced tea. I also got to chat with Alisa Barry from Porta Via Bella Cucina. The hand-made jams and relish were yummy! I also talked with Emily from EmilyG’s, who had delicious jams, and I loved her packaging! It was a great day for people to come out and try all the products. This event will take place every first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Thanks to Williams-Sonoma for the personal invitation.
