2017 Vendors

Michele’s Granola  has finished for the 2017 season. We look forward to seeing you back at the market in 2018. They have fresh handmade varieties like ginger hemp, apple quinoa, cherry chocolate, pumpkin spice, and of course their original which made them so famous, as well as toasted Muesli. Stock your pantry with their innovative and delicious granola varieties.

Here are some great granola ideas: top any variety of fresh assorted fruit or yogurt with granola, add to muffin, pancake, or waffle batter, for a simple and nutritious breakfast, slice apples horizontally, spread the slices with nut butter and cover with granola, for a fun bite-sized snack, press both sides of banana slices in granola, and for a delightful crunchy twist, top your next bowl of hot oatmeal with granola! Coat chicken pieces with ginger hemp for a flavor sensation you won’t soon forget. Use pumpkin spice granola as a crust for your next pumpkin pie. So many healthy granola possibilities!
