Physis opened, mostly unannounced, today for the first time! We served Roasted Tomato Sauce, Vegetable Stock, Vegetable Soup, two vinaigrettes, kachumber, Salsa Fresca, and we'll have more for Saturday!
We will be in the Petaluma East-Side Market on Tuesday mornings.
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!
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
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.
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)!
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!
