About this project

Today's Special wants to bring the Breakfast to Berkeley's Saturday Mornings! Just imagine, Gluten-Free Buttermilk Biscuits and Gravy and Farm Fresh Egg Sandwiches on toasty English Muffins w/ seasonal toppings such as Arugula Pesto and Heirloom Tomato or Chard Tapenade and Monterey Jack Cheese. Or how about Steel Cut Oats with a Honey-Almond crunch, fruit topping, plus a splash of homemade Almond milk. Yup, homemade Date sweetened Almond Milk, plain vanilla or a thick seasonal fruit blend. And last but not least, my childhood favorite, Egg in a Hole, made with Organic Pasture raised eggs cracked right in the middle of whole grain, wood fired oven breads. Today's Special always guarantees our commitment to using fresh ingredients straight from our small, local, Organic farms.

Currently, Today's Special is a Zero-Waste prepared food booth at the All-Organic Berkeley Farmers' Market every Thursday in North Berkeley. Where we use real plates, utensils, and even mason jars for to-go, never disposable; serving Farm-to-Fork fare: locally grown, locally sourced Organic ingredients, noting exactly where and which Farms make our menus possible at every market. Recently we've been asked to join the Saturday Farmers' Market in Downtown Berkeley and we're over joyed to be able to serve you something good a second day every week, but there are some small financial hurdles to work through first.

This added market has a few added costs...additional Health Permits, additional equipment, increased Commercial Kitchen space and rental time; all needed, but with your help we can do it! To show thanks there are some great donor's gifts too, so, please check them out and thank you for your support! With your help we can get this project off the ground, every bit helps. If you aren't able to contribute, please help us to spread the word, share with friends, and let others know about this exciting project!

Many thanks!
