Recappin’ it v.13 – And then there were two

That’s right dear friends … and then there were two. We’re down to the last two farmers markets of the season for the Cranky Crew. Now, we’re not going away. Oh no, you’re stuck with us. We’re just taking a breather from farmers markets for the season. We’re excited to spend some time in the[…]


Recappin’ it v.12 – Delicious Summer

Anyone else love a delicious summer? This week found us on Saturday morning at the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market with Jake and Matt and on Sunday at the Linden Hills Farmers Market with Claire and Nate.

Recappin’ it v.11 – Let there be garlic ice cream!

Did you know, every year around this time, hundreds (okay, thousands) of people gather at the fairgrounds in Hutchinson, MN to celebrate all things garlic? No, you say?

Volunteers are awesome. Let us repeat that. Volunteers are awesome. People like vanilla ice cream. We don’t make[…]


Recappin’ It v.7 – So about that rain …

So about that rain. Is anyone else ready to boot this Minnesota summer outta here? And not in that ‘yes-let’s-have-it-be-fall’ kind-of way? Rain, we’re over you. We’re over setting up at the market with that ominous chill hanging over our heads like a literal (if you will) rain cloud. We’re over dancing to the weather[…]


Recappin’ It v.5 – It’s like we know what we’re doing

“Hey! There’s a girl Cranky?!” Yes, yes … Claire is a girl. Yes, yes … she’s part of Cranky’s. Matt and Jake were off Pride-ing it up this weekend and left Nate and Claire to “man” the cart at the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market. After a brief prayer to the sun gods, it was decided[…]
