Back Porch Market in Grass Valley has new owners

“It is, of course, with well-mixed feelings that Debra and I turn, harvest in, to a new season beyond the BackPorch Market,” according to a newsletter from the market. “The store has been our focus, and all of you, our reward, for a dozen years. But seasons change, and we’d best not resist what is. The good news – in addition to the opportunity for new adventures for us – is that the BackPorch will remain, and enter a new chapter in its story. Recipes and resources have been carved into the woodwork, so your favorites will still be made – and no, the meatballs will never change!

“The new owners are Erik and Rose James. They are familiar with Nevada County, and have roots here, as well. They share a love of good food and wine, and are wholeheartedly embracing a new life in our beautiful foothills. We are all working together for awhile, so they can become familiar with both this whirling contraption of a Market, and our fabulous, saucy, savory, sweet, full of flavor customers.”
