Home on the Grange
Buy, eat and live local at Shed
This is not your run-of-the-mill farmers market--Shed is an ambitious modern-day grange that grows and sells sustainable items while also serving up plenty of ready-to-consume locally sourced fare (think made-on-site kombucha and milled grains).
In the café, the daily changing menu features wood-fired pizzas, mezze plates and breakfasts such as poached eggs over bitter greens ($15). And in the shop, you can pick up heirloom seeds ($4 per packet), hand-forged spades ($75) and other gardening essentials.
The couple behind Shed, Doug Lipton and Cindy Daniel, run a small farm nearby, where they grow some of the fresh produce, flowers and eggs. Part of their mission, they say, is to bring the community together through food, like by offering regular workshops (ranging from free to $110) on everything from canning tomatoes to worm composting to butchering a hog.
