A Glut of Farmers Markets and Morning Roundup
156 local farmers markets may actually be too many; confusion swirls around the departure of founding brewer Jeff Williamson from Flat Earth Brewing; a pitstop at Wisconsin’s Castle Rock Organic Dairy; the Well Fed guys visit Uncle Moe’s Deli and the Tot Boss food truck; questions for Rick about the Beard Awards and who he’d like to see write a cookbook; a taste of Morty’s Snack Shop in Bloomington; tasting notes for Fitger’s El Niño IPA, Wildfire Lager, Big Boat Oatmeal Stout, and Apricot Wheat; and Mayor Rybak gets involved to help the Fulton taproom regain its cloud of symbiotic street food.
