I don’t attend many fairs and festivals, not because I think there is anything fundamentally wrong with them, but because they are typically on weekends and that’s when I’m at my most lethargic / likely to stay close to home. But I have gone to the annual Jue Market the past two years and it has been most excellent.
This year’s market, slated for Sunday, March 15, should be another good one. (I know the poster says Saturday, but March 15 is a Sunday, and I confirmed that is the right day.) Along with book, jewelry and other hard goods vendors, a nice lineup of food and drink sellers is coming along, including Andy’s Craft Sausages, Big Bear Cookies, Jing-A Beer, Shangrila Coffee, Stuff’d Sausages and Two Guys and a Pie.
I imagine more vendors will join in the next two weeks and those will hopefully include some from last year’s event, like 1421, Great Leap and Sue Zhou. Especially Sue Zhou. Because last year we convinced Sue Zhou and Two Guys to team up and create the “pie bing” a.k.a. “Two Zhou” (see below). This year could see… a Double Two Zhou? Or maybe the Beijing comfort foods version of a turducken: a giant meatball inside a pie inside a bing.
The Jue Market runs from 11 AM to 6 PM on March 15 at Lanng Art Center. The address is listed in the poster above. Get more details via the Jue website here.
