Applying to markets...

Written by:  Jason

Physis has applied to attend several markets, and is waiting on their responses. Most have told me it'll take at least a week for a response (hope it's soon!). However, initial reaction has been positive!

In other news...
Just added the first supplier into the database! You can find the link to our supplier list on the right.

Physis will be using spices from Savory Spice Shop in Santa Rosa. They are our only planned food supplier not related to the farmers' markets. They grind their spices on location, and have a wide variety of spices and mixes to use.
Suggest you check them out!

 

Final Inspection Time!

Written by:  Jason

The Physis kitchen trailer was put in it's new commissary-based home on Thursday. I applied for a space at the Sonoma Valley Farmers' Market today, and will be soon applying to two others. I'm focusing upon year-round markets first, as most summer ones will only be open for a few more weeks anyways (so sad I couldn't join you for this summer!).

My county health food facility permit inspection is on Sept 5th.

I'm taking applications for part-time prep cooks. Anyone living in Sonoma County who is interested in working early mornings at farmers' markets can apply via email at: resumes@PhysisFoods.com

 

The Physis Trailer - As purchased...

Written by:  Jason

Our trailer (built in 2007) was previously used for private parties, and was not fully certified with county health (even though built to standard). She was neglected for some time, and it has taken some time & care to bring her back to life. I'll post up to date pictures sometime soon, but until then, here it is as it was purchased.

 

Still chugging along!

I test fitted the trailer at the commissary and it looks like it'll work! Though I admit I'd be happier finding a location a bit more convenient.

Waiting on insurance coverage and I've had a few personal items get into the way recently, so things haven't worked with the planned timeline. Hoping to have those wrapped up this week so things can move forward!

Excited that things are coming together (albeit a bit slower than anticipated)!

 

County Plan Check Completed!

Written by:  Jason

I've finally gotten the designs to my trailer approved by the county!! Now I can move forward with getting my license and putting the trailer in a proper commissary (It's much cheaper to keep in storage than a commissary).

After that is completed, it's time to get Physis in some markets!

 

Dry Run!

I set up my full stand the other day (minus food) to make sure I had everything I needed/wanted. Here's the results!

 

Website v1.0!

Written by:  Jason

I'm still checking for errors in the code, but I believe I am done with the first (finished) version of the Physis website!

The site has taken me some time. I haven't done website design in almost 10 years, and this was quite a large project (even though it may just look like a simple blog currently). I've had to start over 3 or 4 times, and learn HTML 5 (which is amazing!). Quite happy with what I've accomplished here.
