Our trip down was more than a scouting mission than anything else since my lovely wife Ann and I haven't been down there for a couple years. Plus, I really wanted to meet you and say hello. We got away with spending less than 25 bucks so it's all good. LOL
Oh yeah, I'm a huge Zerbe's fan because I absolutely love lard-fried chips and they still don't use any preservatives like just about all the others except maybe Moyer's. The dark ones are the best especially with just a little bit more salt added to them. MMMMM!!! My three-pound bag was filled right out of the big metal can so they were super-fresh as well.
The subs, of course, were Raub's. Ann has always enjoyed their sandwiches although I think they could slice the meat a little thinner. I suppose that helps with speed of assembly when they're really busy like they were yesterday.
Hey, this site and the membership which frequents it are a great resource and it really shows in the quality of your pizza. We could've, would've, should've had more time to gab if you weren't so busy also. LOL
Living in and around the land of the plain folk definitely has it's advantages especially when it comes to stuffing our tummies. I suppose the best description of Root's can be found on their own website but it really is a great place where you can find good stuff and plenty of it. Here's what the complex looks like from overhead on every day of the week except Tuesday...
Good luck with that oven vent repair and the best form of advertising has always been word-of-mouth. I know I'll be glad to talk you and your pizza up whenever I get the chance!!!
Thanks for the link to what Root’s looks like on a non-market day and also for explaining what Root’s is like on a market day.
I agree living around plain folks has its advantages.
I also used to eat a lot of Zerbe’s chips, but try to stay away from chips because I would eat too many, but you are right, they sure are good.
Besides Raub’s subs, the subs in the back of the market are really good, and they also sell lots of subs. I don’t know if you ever tried the other subs or not. The only reason I don’t purchase subs at market is because I can purchase them a lot cheaper at my local Country Store and I think they are even better than at market. I have know all of the Raub’s for many years. Did you ever look at the antique slicer Raub’s uses to slice their meats for the subs?
I agree this site and membership are a great resource. It might become addictive, so you better what out.
Thanks for the good luck with the vent. That darn thing has been a source of problems for me. I might have to rip out my whole stand to get my floor fixed since it rained in so much last year. I think my floor is rotting under my oven and just hope the oven doesn’t fall on Steve or me some week.
I know word of mouth is the best form of advertising. I would love to have a outside mobile unit in the spring, summer and fall. I know how many customers just frequent the outside stands and never come inside. I also know there are many customers that have never gotten to see my small pizza stand back where I am located. I have to talk to the market manager more about his advertising plan.
I sure would have like to talked more with you and your wife. At least for an old woman like me I still can move fast when I want to.
