We were just accepted into one of the biggest Farmers Markets in Southern California! We be selling BBQ at the Torrance Farmers Market (http://www.yelp.com/biz/torrance-city-farmers-market-torrance?rpp=40&sort_by=date_desc)every Saturday from 8a-1p.

We had been truing to get in for a while and the guy who was there selling BBQ there retired. It took some convincing because the lady who runs it has a 2 year waiting list but she knows I have good Que and I have been working her Tuesday Market for over a year now. Finally I get my shot at the Big one!

Wish me luck!

Big,

This makes four. We had six at one time but we dropped three that were too small to support us.

Congrats Neil, and good luck, though I suspect you will knock em dead. How does your 'que compare to the guy who is leaving? Will there be a 'learning curve' for the customers?

From what I understand, He was selling a lot of whole tri-tips, chickens, pork loins and turkey legs along with his sandwiches and plates. Gonna have to find those large quantity customers and find ways to satisfy them. Might have to get another trailer and a larger cooker eventually.

Saturday ended up being a good day. First day out and I did more than I ever did on Tuesday and beat my Thursday totals for the past two weeks. Looking forward to the next one. Hope the storm has passed by then.
