The Handcrafted Cooperative is an amazing event that brings together talented local makers to sell their wares all in one place.
Kayla and I went to check it out, and we browed all the great local items. And, of course, we had lunch at the local food truck.
Wildflour is primarily located in North Central West Virginia and serves up local food in fresh ways.
The truck's name is Violet: "Violet is our beautiful behemoth of a street kitchen. At 25 feet long & 8 feet wide, she houses all the equipment and work space we need to make magic happen. She came to us in the Fall of 2017 as a Vegan-Latin American lunch truck. After a good wash and rebranding, we have converted her to our local lunch trailer, catering food studio, and traveling festival foodie."
Before we had a name, we had a passion. That crazy habitat of hard work, days of planning, the copious lists written on every scrap of paper, and late night cram sessions are where we thrive. Turn up the heat in the kitchen & we kick into gear.
I have the rare opportunity to work in harmony with my mama and we get into our groove and can weather the crazy storm that is food service with little more than some grunts, nods, and our unspoken kitchen shorthand.
Our place of choice is behind the scenes, the cogs and spokes of the operation. We love to watch people enjoy the company of their family and friends when celebrating life's joys. Its an honor to be included in those priceless days and momentous occasions in a capacity we can turned furrowed brows into easy smiles.
Through the week, we love to be a part of your day, sharing love through what we enjoy the most- good food. We come from a family that has instilled the need to uphold high standards of cleanliness, service, and excellent hospitality.
Life is crazy and can be a little bit wild. But we always try to bloom where we're planted and thrive in any environment. We do what we do because we cannot imagine doing anything else. And nothing makes it better than when you can do what you love and share that along with a smile with everyone that crosses our path.
I ordered a "Slammin' Salmon Sammie" with hand-pattied salmon cake, organic greens, tomato, dill mayo, grilled bun and served with chips.
And, also hushpuppies! Which is something they're known for.
