Taste Makers: The Artisans' Market at Williams-Sonoma

Honey from Savannah Bee Co.
Last weekend I dropped by the Artisans' Market at my local Williams-Sonoma and enjoyed some delicious bites from some of Atlanta's talented local artisans.  Not only was it a pleasure to sample the tasty fare, but equally to my liking was the opportunity to meet the people behind the food.

From the Italian delicacies of Bella Cucina to the exquisite chocolates of Cacao Atlanta to the Southern delights of Phickles Pickles--and many more--it was a true foodie haven.  Between sharing our passions for food, snapping pics, and hearing about all the new and exciting ventures that these taste makers have on the horizon, it was an indulgent way to spend a portion of my Saturday afternoon.  And it felt good supporting our local producers so that they can continue to pursue their dreams and so that we can continue to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

I'm excited to see what's next for the many and varied local artisans who are making bold, delicious food statements.  I'll be watching because surely it will fuel my Happy Eating!
