This week at the Market: Tasha's Cookies, Cafe Ambrosia, Cheverly Breadbasket, Two Oceans Seafood

We are lucky to have such a large and wonderful group of vendors this year -- it really is an embarrassment of riches when you consider that we started with just four vendors in the parking lot in 2008! There are more choices than ever at Cheverly Community Market and we're always working to bring you even more great vendors. With so many wonderful options, sometimes we don't highlight some of our favorites. Today, we're out to share them with you!
 Have you visited the big cookie truck yet this season? If you haven't yet tasted Tasha's Cookies & Treats, you are missing out! Natasha Williams makes delicious cake-like cookies that are soft and delicious, as well as extra-good cake pops and other treats! We're especially partial to the chocolate-chip toffee and her out-of-this-world oatmeal raisin. 
The good people of Cafe Ambrosia, sponsored by the St. Ambrose Ladies of Charity, bring us freshly brewed coffee, as well as water, juices and other treats. We are incredibly grateful to them for the countless caffeine boosts over the years.
What would a Cheverly Community Market morning be without delectable breads and pastries from Cheverly Breadbasket? Arvind Lal brings us wonderful baked goods from local baking masters Firehook Bakery and amazing tortillas and chips from Hyattsville favorite Moctec Mexican Foods. We're big fans of the Challah (it sells out quickly, so buy early) as well as the earthier breads, and we've been known to open a bag of chips and a package of fresh salsa post-market and make it our entire lunch. Don't judge. 
Two Oceans Seafood brings us fantastic fish -- delicious salmon, ahi tuna, and more, as well as gorgeous eggs and chicken from their farm in Stevenson, Maryland, and local honey, flavored oils, and vinegars. They're taking orders for Thanksgiving turkeys, too, so visit them this Saturday if you want to get a jump on the holidays.

If you haven't met these great vendors and sampled their wares, make sure to do so this Saturday!
