Delaney's is a "Market and Cafe" and it carries organic, free range, hormone & antibiotic free goods and affords the opportunity for local "like-minded" vendors to place their products on her shelves. A small section in her store has been dedicated to locally made products that are free of parabens, pesticides, or other harmful ingredients.
One of the vendors there last night was sampling raw vegan cheesecakes. Barbara Dowling, owner of The Raw Vegan, was a delight to speak with. She truly is an inspiration to anyone on the mission of eating clean and she is a cancer survivor... she ate her way to good health! That's the way to do it!

Everyone who came in had filled in an interest form and were entered in a drawing, which they had to be present to "win". Five lucky winners were chosen for a scavenger hunt. I was one of the winners. We were given 3 recipes and we needed to find the ingredients for each recipe and be the first one to find them all first. A new customer won! She even had an 18 month old child on her back in an Ergo carrier! I got stuck looking for the chicken broth! The gal who was first won all the ingredients in the basket! I think it was at least a $50 value! Congrats Bam Hoener!

Maria, a friend of Jordan's for 10 years was there helping customers acclimate themselves with the products and services of Delaney's and passing endless food and drink samples all while educating us on the ingredients found in them.
One additional drawing was held and it was a gift basket stocked full of chipotle and spice enriched products.

One thing's for sure, even in this dire economy, there is still a community of people who will eat well. Thank you Jordan for providing a much needed service in our community! May you continue to be prosperous in both health and wealth!
