We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our amazing vendors for making this 2012 season the best one yet! We’re also happy to announce that next year MCM will move to a year-round format, opening for the 2013 season on January 17th.

We’re excited to share with you the result of a project that we’ve been a part of during the past few months. As a part of a special collaboration between MCM and students from the ENGAGE program at the California College of the Arts, eight of our vendors were profiled in a beautifully-designed book called Neighboring Greatness which offers a glimpse into what makes MCM so special. The book is available now for purchase.

We’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who participated in this project. Thanks to all the vendors who agreed to be a part of this book, participated in interviews, and hosted students at their farms and businesses so that their story could be told. Thanks go out to Hale Apple Farm, Yerena Farms, Twin Girls Farm, Emmy’s Pickles and Jams, En Vie Naturals, The Heated, ZIA Designs, and Chaac-Mool.

Thanks also go out to all the students who helped make this project possible, as well as their professor Jenny Mullins.
