ON THIS DAY, WHILE RUNNING ERRANDS  AND FINISHING MY 2ND CUP OF JAVA FOR THE MORNING IN HARLEM  I NOTICED BY THE STATE BUILDING  THAT THE FARMERS MARKET WAS BUZZING WITH ACTIVITY!  USUALLY I DON’T BOTHER WITH FOOD MARKETS BECAUSE OF THE PRICES , BUT  THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCTS AND  VEGETABLES  ARE EXCELLENT! THE GROWERS OF THESE HEALTHY DELIGHTS COME FROM AS FAR AS UP STATE AS NEW YORK AND AS FAR CENTRAL  AS NEW JERSEY .

 WHILE BROWSING THE WONDERFUL DELIGHTTS FOR THE HEART AND SOUL, I TOOK VERY CLOSE NOTICE OF THE LOVELY PEOPLE FROM ALL PARTS OF THE AREA . I SCHMOOZED WITH SEVERAL VENDORS AND ACTUALLY HAD A CHANCE TO  TASTE  A FEW MOUTH WATERING DESSERTS AND GOT TO SEE A DEMONSTRATTION FROM A WONDERFULY FIT OLDER LADY, MRS. YVONNE STRAFFORD.
 THEN I SPOTTED BROWNIES , COOKIES , CUPCAKES AND OTHER GOODIES FROM LOVE JOY SWEET TREATS INC! JOY WAS A BRIGHT- EYED AND READY VENDOR WHOSE WORKS OF ART WERE A TREAT TO THE EYE. I HAD TO HAVE SOMETHING FROM THIS GREAT DISPLAY SO I TASTED THE VEGAN TWINKIE! YEP ! TWINKIE!
BEING THE OPENED MINDED FOOD LOVER THAT I AM, I SAID WHY NOT?
 I WAS GLAD I DID. IT WAS A MOUTH- WATERING DELIGHT THAT GAVE ME FAITH FOR THE SUGAR FREE TREATS OF  THE WORLD ( WHERE ARE YOU?)! AND OH YES SHE HAS SUGAR FREE TREATS! PEOPLE TAKE A HINT FROM JOY AND HELP SAVE A LIFE! JOY CAN BE REACHED AT 347-543-5791 AND AT WWW.LOVEJOYSWEETTREATS.COM. HAND MADE TREATS OF LOVE!
ANOTHER GREAT LADY AND MULTI TASKER, ANGELA LOGAN (ACTRESS , COMEDIENNE AND ENTREPRENEUR).  THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST KNOWN INDIVIDUALS I COULD HAVE MET TODAY. WE ALL KNOW HER STORY, AND FOR THOSE WHO DON’T: SIMPLE MORTGAGE PAYMENTS , NO MONEY , GREAT IDEA AND A PLAN AND VOILA! YOU HAVE ONE OF THE GREATEST STORIES YOU’VE EVER SEEN OR HEARED. IT’S A WONDER I DIDN’T RECALL ALL OF THIS UNTIL I ACTUALLY SLOWED DOWN FROM ALL OF THE COFFEE!
THESE WERE FANTASTIC LOOKING TREATS AS ONE GUY WAS SAYING WHILE WAITING ON HER TO SET UP. IT’S ALL WORTH THE WAIT  BUT HERE IS WHERE YOU CAN FIND ALL THE INFO ON THESE GREAT TREATS: ANGELA LOGAN 201-371-3121 , MPLOGAN@HOTMAIL.COM AND WWW.MACAKES.COM IS WHERE YOU CAN ORDER!
AS I CANVASED THE SMALL FARMERS MARKET LOOKING FOR JUST THE RIGHT PERSON TO TALK TO AGAIN AND FIND OUT ALL ABOUT THE WONDERS OF A SMALL BUISSNESS  FROM THE PEOPLE WHO  TOOK THE CHANCE AND MADE IT, I NOTICED THIS SMALL TABLE OF BOOKS AND LO AND BEHOLD, ANOTHER AWSOME LADY WITH THE FLAIR FOR HARD WORK AND EFFORT: MRS.FAITH RINGGOLD OF FAITH RINGGOLDS BOOKS.
IT WAS A JOY TO TALK TO THE DAUGHTER AND I ALSO TOOK PICUTRES OF THIS WONDERFULL HARLEM ICON; FROM HER WIDE VARIETY  OF CHILDREN BOOKS  TO HER GREAT WORKS OF SUBWAY ART ON LEXINGTON AVE IN HARLEM! WHAT A JOY TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO MEET THIS LEGEND IN OUR MIDST! I’M PLANNING ON TAKING MY LITTLE LADY TO MEET THIS LEGEND OF WRITING AND STORY TELLING.
IN THE START OF MY TALES I MENTIONED MRS.YVONNE STAFFORD,  A TOTAL WELL BEING EDUCATOR ON HOW TO TAKE THE EATING HABITS WE HAVE AND TURN THEM INTO A TOOL OF HEALTH. SHE HAS SOME GREAT TOOLS TO LIVE AND LEARN BY IN HER BOOK FAST FOODS TO SLOW FOODS.  FROM THE DEMO ON THE MINI TRAMPOLINE ITS LOOKS LIKE SHE IS A USER OF HER OWN WORDS! SHE WAS IN GREAT SHAPE AND IF I WASN’T A MOVER I WOULD HAVE FELT SHAMED!  THE NATURAL LIVING INSTITUE LLC OF HARLEM NY AT 274 MALCOM X BLVD 10027  IS WHERE HER WORKS CAN BE FOUND; ALSO AT WWW.RAWREASON.COM. SHE CAN BE REACHED AT NATURALHARLEM@GMAIL.COM OR  212-662-6408.
“LOVE YOUR BODY AND THE THINGS YOU USE ON IT” IS THE MOTO FOR LONG TIME HARLEM RESIDENT  MR. BEN BAKER.  BEN’S LINE OF WORK IS ONE THAT YOU LADIES WILL LOVE, NATURAL HAND MADE SOAPS AND OILS AND OTHER WONDERFULLY SCENTED ARTICLES THAT ARE MADE WITH BEN’S SPECIAL SECRET INGREDIENTS. MAYBE IF YOU STOP BY OR CHECK THESES GUYS OUT, HE WILL LET YOU IN ON IT (NOT LIKELY THOUGH). LOL. MR.BAKER CAN BE REACHED  AT SUGARHILLSOAP@GMAIL.COM AND ORDERS CAN BE PLACED  AT SUGARHILLSOAP.COM AND  917-365-1334. HE IS GREAT GUY AND A JOY TO TALK WITH!
IN CLOSING, I HAD A GREAT TME THIS MORNING WITH GREAT FOLKS AND DON’T FORGET: THE FARMERS MARKET IS EVERY TUESDAYS AT THE STATE BUILDING ON 125TH ST. SEE YOU THERE!
