Small Business Saturday – Buy Local

shop-small

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday, a fitting reminder to “shop small” after the Black Friday frenzy.  (I wasn’t in that frenzy, but have seen the reports.  Shudder.)

I love to head to the Tomball Farmers’ Market on Small Business Saturday and visit the vendors who have become friends during my years of “buying local” almost every weekend.

One such friend is Steve Maloof, the owner of Just Pure Flavors.  If you follow my blog, you’ve heard about his company before.  I love to cook with his fresh jams!  Steve was recently featured in the local Houston version of ShrimpTank, a podcast about entrepreneurs that the Grill-Meister occasionally co-hosts.

Let’s all shop small – and I’ll see you around at the Farmers’ Market.
