IT'S OUR 1-YEAR BIRTHDAY this weekend at the Market

Throughout life, we all have milestones that feel important to celebrate. Birthdays. First dates. Refrigerator cleaning day. You know, important things. So it goes without saying that Dumpling & Strand’s 1-year anniversary of selling noodles (look at how cute we were on our first day!) is a huge milestone for us. For a lot of reasons. The biggest being that we surpassed any goal/vision/aspiration we had set for ourselves 365 short (long?) days ago. Your support has given us the lift and momentum to get where we are. So we want to celebrate! And to say thank you.

This Saturday at Mill City Farmers Market, from 8am – 1pm, we’ll be celebrating with giveaways (awesome local foods you can pair with our strands – Cherry Tree House Mushrooms, Red Table Meat Pancetta, Cosmic Wheel Creamery Cheese, Twisted Shrub cocktail mixer, to name a few), free packs of noodles, discounts, a MCFM membership and more. All in all a day full of silly fun, good cheer and, best of all, you! Of course, we’ll have all our favorite noodles for sale as well. Plan to come early … you know how fast they go!

NEW: Frustrated that your favorite noodle is gone before you park the car on Saturday mornings? Now you can put a hold on the noodle of your choice! Contact us before 5pm on Friday, and we’ll happily hold it for you for pickup Saturday morning until noon!

Indoor Mill City Farmers Market THIS WEEKEND, Saturday, March 25

It feels like we haven’t seen you all for months! Which is why we’re looking forward to catching up with all your happy and warm faces this Saturday, 3/25 from 10am – 1pm at Mill City’s Indoor Farmers Market. This weekend it’s all about sprouted grains, along with some old favorites. Regardless of your preference, plan to come early … you know how fast they go!*

*We’ve been asked: “If they go so damned fast, why don’t you just bring more?” Fair question, Mom. Here's our answer: we’d rather give you lots of options (upwards of 18 different kinds of noodles some weeks!) and sell out (Yay!) than give you only 3 choices and not sell everything (Snooze!).
