Vendor Spotlight: 118 Degrees & Avanti Cafe

19 Nov

Not only will the owners of both 118 Degrees and Avanti Cafe be leading cooking demos during The Inspired Buyer (check the Activities page for their schedule), but each restaurant will also be selling their delectable goodies during the event. Perfect for an individual present or an addition to a gift basket, Avanti Cafe specializes in an array of handmade food items, such as hot sauces, jams, marinades, spreads, and butters – all made from fresh, local, and mostly organic produce. Yum!

While both restaurants, focus on healthy, vegetarian dishes, 118 Degrees’ specialty is raw cuisine, a.k.a living food that has not been cooked above 118 Degrees. Maintaining the foods essential nutrients and enzymes, you have to taste owner, Jenny Rosses delicious recipes to truly understand how great raw food can be. At The Inspired Buyer she’ll be selling an assortment of her pre-made goodies, including Chipotle Ranch Wraps, Kale Salads, Tames, Tacos, Macadamia Macaroons, and more.

With the Seabirds gourmet food truck also parked at the event throughout the day, I think we got your hungry belly covered!

Art activities, like making seed balls, acorn necklaces, and dream catchers, will also be happening throughout the day.
