Every Monday morning the chefs of Purple Spoon gather to survey the bounty of goodness from our local farms to decide what in the world we are going to whip up for the week’s menu. Starting with a baseline of gluten free and vegan we mix and match the seasonally stellar ingredients our farmers have brought us to create a selection of unique, nourishing and satisfying prepared meals options. Where appropriate we add in meats or starches to a dish to make it an omnivore-friendly or gluten-friendly option.

As true culinarians we recognize that indulgence is a must in life so we always toss in to the weekly menu a few dishes and ingredients that just make the tummy and the soul happy. Life, and food, are all about balance!

Sample the locally inspired goodness before deciding what goes home with you at our Locally Grown Market every Wednesday from 3 – 6pm,  year round.
