Shanghai in the spring is one of the most fabulous places on earth. The winter coat can finally be put away, my toes have feeling once again, and everyone seems to smile more.
Yesterday at Jiashan Market, the weather was beautiful, with a small breeze coming in to chase away the stifling heat that is waiting to pounce. I met so many great people, both vendors and market customers. I got to spend the day with Ada, who works with Mealbay (a food delivery service that is better than Sherpas). She is an energetic woman who made selling at the market feel like fun and not like work.On the other side of me was Shanghai Young Bakers, an amazing charity that trains students from rural villages how to become master bakers (they made my wedding cakes, which were delicious!). All of the vendors have something unique and different, and they are all so friendly and willing to share their ideas and advice. Friends came to the market to support me at the Serenity Seitan table, a musician and his guitar made us sing. I got to see people enjoy the food I made (and buy it!). I couldn't help but thinking, life is good.
The good news doesn't stop there. On Wednesday I dropped my card off at Avocado Lady's along with a package for her to try. Two days later I received an e-mail from a woman who saw my card there, and she and her friend will be picking up two packages each. When I told people at the farmers market that I would be selling there, they just nodded their heads. Everyone knows and loves the Avocado Lady, especially me.
Thank you to everyone who has bought Serenity Seitan! See below for some yummy photos of some satisfied customers' Serenity Seitan dishes!
