Tell Me Something GOOD

Weirdly, December 6th seemed to be some crazy cosmically intense day that was beckoning to all LA go-getters and power-people. Crops and Rawbers was invited to cater THREE events taking place on the 6th, as numerous craft fairs, art markets, sample sales, and general scene seeners popped up simultaneously all over the city. We chose, and for good reason, the GOOD magazine eco-friendly meet and greet for like-minded recyclers, composters, makers, breakers, and fixer-uppers. Our booth was awesome and outside in the sun, situated near the radical seed bomb guy, vintage button lady, silverlake farms reps, and Eagle Rock's own kooky-but-conscious REGENERATION mini store. Diva found us a classic round robin table with built-in stools and umbrella - kind of a happening hang out spot. In typical bleached-out LA fashion, mexican food was the Melrose Ave ala carte du jour as we served up our rock'em sock'em tacos with guac'em. The homemade raw tortillas were a hit even as we went head to head with mamas tamales steaming it up in the front of house. Not a bad little feat for the raw foodies out there who dare to taste test against the cooked world ! Siked on our set up, and ready to preach on, we gave a short talk on the lifestyle, answered some questions, and made almond butter for the eager little crowd. No one could resist our wacky combo of banana boats stuffed with almond butter and topped with leafy celery sticks and cayenne. Turning heads and minds daily, people !
