I am going to try to make this event. I have been trying to buy as much local from my home town as possible. I currently use Joe Schmo's Kitchen & Acoustic Coffee Roasters in my restaurant. Seeking out some local products/vendors. Peachtree Southern Kitchen and Cocktails

Say "cheese"-cake! Meet Sean Dougherty, owner operator of 3D's Pennsylvania Cake Company. The 3D's stand for Doc's Delicious Desserts. He'll be at the event with delicious cheesecake bites. Here's a bit about Sean... ______________________________ After graduating from culinary school, I spent the last 20 years working in the food industry, as a chef and manager. My love has always been desserts. I have been making different types of sweets for as long as I have been cooking. I have been making cheesecakes for friends and family for years now, and have decided to open my own business. I am starting out selling cheesecakes, but hope to expand into all sorts of culinary confections in the future.

Rosemary and John Taipale of Natural Excellence Farm & Gardens is a popular Howland Farmers Market vendor. You can find them at our winter market too. What a treasure to find fresh greens grown in their hoop house in the dead of winter! And, not only are Rosemary and John talented farmers and dedicated stewards of the land, John is an established classical guitarist. He'll be serenading us at the Open House! Here are a few words by Rosemary about their kitchen incubator experience....... John & I have been growing hardneck garlic in our backyard for many years. The scapes, or flower stalks of the garlic make a tasty addition to stir-fry dishes & salads. A few years ago our son suggested a pickle recipe for garlic scapes, which quickly became a family favorite. As farmers selling their vegetables at local farmers markets, we would have liked to include these delicious pickles among our products. However, regulations do not allow selling homemade pickles. They would have to be made in a commercial kitchen. Well, that sounded like a venture into the unknown & probably expensive too. The Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator guided us through the process & made it possible to sell our pickles at the farmers markets. If we can do it, anyone can.

Meet longtime HFM vendor Mike Dettilio of Big City Tailgate. What he doesn't say in his bio is that in his spare time he's building a tiny home! ____________________________________________ I was introduced to "Buffalo wings" in 1987 while on a date with a gal named Gina. My life was forever changed. Not by Gina, she disappeared shortly thereafter. Twenty-seven years later, Big City Tailgate was launched as a custom wing flavor machine that brings you sauce mixes tailored to your favorite sports city. I still don't know where Gina is. In 2016, I broadened our product line beyond wing sauce mix to include all things for tailgate parties including dips, dry rubs, snacks and fun recipes. The Backstory A friend named "Joe" throws parties at other people's houses. (Usually, they know about it.) One of those has been for the Super Bowl and some playoff games. Because I'm known for my passion of making unique and tasty hot wings, Joe started having those parties at my house. And every year for 10 years, I'd research the culture, history and local flavors of the participating cities in order to create yummy sauces. Recipes started to pile up and long story short, here you are reading about my company. My first conversation with a food incubator started in Massachusetts, then I moved to Ohio, where I began the process of using the food incubator in Athens, Ohio (Commonweath Incubator wasn't open yet). By a chance meeting, I learned about an incubator in Cleveland that I still use on occasion, but I joined the Commonwealth Incubator a little over a year ago. Since then, I've met a great group of others doing awesome things in the Youngstown food community. It's great to have such a resource so close. M

HFM vendor Genevieve's Kitchen LLC will be sampling at next Tuesday's YOU CAN MAKE IT! Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator Open House. Here's her story...... _________________________________________ In January of 2011, I was stricken with polymyalgia rheumatic. It was debilitating. I could only function with massive doses of prednisone which quickly began to destroy my body and caused me to have multiple surgeries. When my doctor put me on methotrexate and my hair began falling out- That was it. I went to a naturopathic doctor and learned that if I removed wheat, corn and dairy from my diet I could live relatively pain free with no medication! I began baking bread out of spelt flour (an ancient cereal grain unchanged over time) for myself. Soon family members and friends tasted the bread, noticed the improvement in their own health, and began encouraging me to not only bake but also sell my bread. I now make a variety of natural baked products using life changing ancient grains for Genevieve’s Kitchen! As a teacher, I taught my students about entrepreneurship- I never expected to become one myself. This has been an amazing and exciting experience in which I continue to learn and grow every day. Vending at Howland Farmers Market, baking at the Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator, meeting with my SCORE Mentors and attending classes at both YSU's Williamson College of Business Administration and Youngstown Business Incubator are just a few of the new activities I find myself involved in. I am grateful for my good health which enables me to continue on this journey and I am committed to sharing my baked goods and the knowledge I gain about healthy eating with my customers.

We want to brag about a few of our makers who will be featured at the YOU CAN MAKE IT! Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator Taste and Tour Open House coming up on November 14th. We will be posting their stories..... Stacy and Craig McDivitt of McDivitt Family Maple LLC____________________________________________ My husband Craig’s fond childhood memories of making maple syrup with his family led him to start producing maple syrup as a hobby he could do with our sons, Mason and Mack. We started our production in a shed we bought to convert into a sugar house and a 2x4 evaporator. Then in 2015 our oldest son Mason was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We were fortunate enough to place him at The Rich Center for Autism. Along with his diagnosis came the need to add more to our family income. I knew I had to find a way to help support our family financially and still be available to drive Mason to and from school and still be at home for both my boys. During this time Craig and I attended a Maple Expo and I took classes on maple confection and gift basket making. This gave me the idea to start a business selling value added products. By the start of 2016 we had upgraded our evaporator, added a reverse osmosis and formed McDivitt Family Maple LLC. The first season we attended three local farmers markets, selling syrup and cottage foods. By the next season we added to our more to our product line, including Maple Hot Pepper Jam, Maple Pecans and our first non-cottage food Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. The addition of these products, helped us nearly double our sales in one year. Next season we are planning on adding new non-cottage foods, such as Maple Mustard and Maple Hot Mustard. We are also restructuring our business plan and focusing on more e-commerce and business to business sales. We are very excited about the future and without facilities like the Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator, continued growth for small businesses like ours would not be possible.
