Selling farm fresh products has become the cornerstone of Eric and Alexis Koefoed's Soul Food Farm, their family farm in Vacaville, which they started from literally nothing. Over the past decade, they've created a thriving business where they raise chickens and grow fruits and vegetables. They also recently introduced glamping. Next Saturday, on June 7, they're adding yet another element to the mix with a combination antiques fair and farmer's market from 8am to 4pm. The event is a collaboration between Alexis and her friend Jeannie Wilson of Cottage Pickens, who buys and sells vintage and antique treasures.
"I was telling [Jeannie] about my vision for growing agritourism here in the valley, and she was telling me about her frustrations with the antique world, so we decided to do something out here on the farm," Alexis tells SFGate. Antique dealers and farmers will bring their wares from around the Bay, and food vendors will set up to keep shoppers refreshed.
