|Must Ask Him His Name, AGAIN|
And Mr Pablo's Pizza is awesome. I have had the please of building a great relationship w/him & his family over the past 10 years. Jeff is one of those easy going guys that finds time to make small take. I took this photo because he is turning on the gas for his oven. Last week, I was watching over his shoulder, the oven burner wouldn't light to save his life. As I said out loud," Doesn't seem to be getting any gas." he look back at me w/a huge grin. Causally he went to check the tank and realized that he had yet to turn that funky little knob. We laughed and I walked on to my next problem solving event.
The Solar Guys, new guys at the market, weren't as in gauging as the other guys that have been man their booth. About the only thing they were happy w/was me informing them that they could leave their truck there.
Colorado Java folks!! They are awesome. They are a family, married, cyclist, outdoor enthusiast, and they always show up happy as can be. We have really hit it off this year & I only hope that we might cover some road miles together this fall. Oh, and my office is on the 3rd floor of that building on the left.
The Kettle Corn Club. I agree w/these folks every week. Every Week. EVERY week they have something to complain about. Don't get me wrong, they have valid points. This week, they were quick to point out that the food truck was NEXT to them. I mean, damn near on top of them. I like this couple and their parents come out to help them as well. The older folks crack me up and I find myself gravitating towards them when I check in. Plus, they crank out the biz every week. Overall, I wish I could do more for them and help enhance their market experience.
These gals pump out the food!!! I am amazed at the production that goes on inside this oven ( the kitchen is overwhelmingly hot ) every week. They show up early and seem to be in slow mo but a switch is flipped and they step it up. Three gals inside and they are preparing in sync and they shovel out the food. Very impressive operation. I like checking in w/them and always give a short encouraging complement. I am not a fast food connoisseur or a vender eater and I wonder if they wonder why I never buy anything from them. Maybe, they are just too damn busy to care. Can I let that go????? Why Yes, I can.
The Soda Man!!! This Guy ( another name I space ) has his sh*t together. Every week he is smiling, sets up at record pace, and never has a bad thing to say. I like to help him as much as I can and he shares funny life adventurous tales w/me. He does really well at this market!!! He knows how to sell!! He understands marketing!!! He is a pleasure to work with!!!
I always have a non profit group ( rotation of groups weekly ) on the right and the Cheese Cake folks on the left. Our little info booth is on the far right were I relax after the vendors are up and running. After updating this blog today, I realized that I didn't shoot any photos of the farmers, the vendors after they are set up, and how many names I have spaced. Classic
