A Word From Market Umbrella’s Co-Founder Richard McCarthy!

Market Umbrella co-founder Richard McCarthy will speak at Octavia Books on Wednesday, March 1 (518 Octavia Street) at 6 pm about the new book he co-wrote with rural development leader Tsuyoshi Sekihara. Kuni: A Japanese Vision and Practice for Urban-Rural Reconnection sheds light on the extraordinary and creative efforts underway in Japan to reshape rural life around shared cultural and natural assets, including food. Kuni offers a compelling vision of regenerative relationships that can take root in the United States–and anywhere. The event is free and open to the public. There will be books on hand and saké on the menu!

Vendor of the Week:

Pickled NOLA

The New Orleans-based company Pickled NOLA LLC specializes in delicious homemade pickles. Jeremy Oatis, the founder of Pickled NOLA, is a teacher, a Mardi Gras Indian, and a serious pickler. He first started making pickles four years ago to use up a surplus of home-grown cucumbers! Two years later, with the encouragement of friends and family, Pickled NOLA was born. Since then, Jeremy and Kimberly Oatis have expanded the offerings of Pickled NOLA to include an array of seasonal and locally-sourced pickled vegetables, including dill cucumber pickles, pickled green beans, and pickled garlic. Pickled NOLA provides a fresh, natural alternative to store-bought pickled products. Stop by the Pickled NOLA table at the Sunday City Park market or check out their website: they’re a big dill!
