There are a million and one reasons to love your local farmer’s market:
1. Supporting your local small businesses and farms
2. Eating Fresh Fresh Fresh
3. Knowing your foods history
4. Taste testing
5. Tootsie’s favorite reason: These doughnuts
THE GOODS: Tootsie went to town on this freshly baked Caramel Doughnut. It was a tough choice, but being on a caramel kick, this one spoke to us. Other doughnuts pictured are their chocolate, cinnamon, blueberry, and peach!
THE SPOT: Revolution Doughnuts is a new company based out of Decatur, GA. They have their own shop and also occasion the Grant Park Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings. Check out their facebook page and their twitter for menu updates. They apparently have something called a Nutella Puff….YES PLEASE.
THE SCOOP: You really can taste the Love baked into these sweets. They are “classic” in every sense of the word: made from scratch with real ingredients, no fillers, stabilizers, or preservatives. It’s a hearty treat, but it doesn’t leave you feeling like you put a rock in your stomach. I love a little double D’s as much as the next New Englander, but no chain can hold a candle to these doughnuts. They are the real deal, folks.
FACT MORSEL: When asked where they came up with the name “Revolution” they said it was the “…dual connotation of round/rolling and power to the people – we are taking doughnuts back from the machines and crafting them by hand. “-Maria Moore Riggs (General Manager of Revolution Doughnuts) For Maria and her team, it’s all about the community. Everything you love about your farmer’s market you will love about them: handmade, local, fresh. Come out and support this true labor of love!
