    @ the Delridge Farmer’s Market today Wendi Farms will be selling the coffee they import from the from grandfather’s farm in Uganda.  A chance to ensure a coffee grower is compensated fairly for his product…rather than being ripped off by large coffee chains. They also sell their grandfather’s vanilla bean pods which are super fresh and delicious!
