What is a pop-up store? A pop-up store is just what it sounds like. It is a moveable feast of sorts that may have an ever-changing location. It appears, maybe once a month, or so where chefs and foodies present their wares to customers, notifying them by twitter, email or through a blog or facebook reminder. If you go to one, double check the location to make sure it is where you think it is. It is a fun and exciting event because you don’t know what you will find there(always something good) and it draws crowds of people from different backgrounds.
The pop-up General store that I went to in Oakland near Children’s Hospital is housed in an urban brick warehouse. It is hard to find parking, but if you follow the shoppers with their bags to their car, you can snag their space.
Several Thursday night’s ago, Katz & Co offered up a delicious tasting extravaganza at their commercial kitchen in Napa. You could purchase their beautiful jams and honey’s, olive oils, wine vinegars and also their Free-range chickens. A friend of theirs had beautifully pre-pared CSA boxes that we took home. Quite a mix, but somehow it worked. For more of their products or to get on their list, check them out at http://katzandco.com/zindex3.html
