About Farmers Market Inspired

Farmers Market Inspired  is business established by food enthusiast, Stephanie Burchiel. Stephanie’s passion for fresh cuisine comes from her experience growing up on an organic farm in Atascadero, California. On this 163 acre ranch located off Toro Creek Road, Stephanie and her family have grown certified organic (CCOF and USDA) Kiwis and Meyer Lemons for 15 years,  selling the fruits at the local farmer’s market. After graduating from Cal Poly in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Stephanie became involved with a small, organic vegetarian restaurant called the Shine Cafe, within 6 months of managing the business, Stephanie became the owner and ran the small cafe and its menu for 4 years.  After a few attempts to expand the Shine cafe, Stephanie was guided in the opposite direction of simplifying the business, realizing that sometimes the best way to move forward is to take a few steps back and get in touch with your roots. It was this realization that created Farmers Market Inspired Soups. With years of experience in the field of organic agriculture combined with a passion for fresh cuisine Farmers Market Inspired Soups became a reality in November of 2009. Farmers Market Inspired Soups can be found at the farmer’s markets of Los Osos on Mondays, Thursdays in Morro Bay and Cambria on Fridays alongside bins of organic kiwis and other organic produce from Birch Hill Organics of Toro Creek.

    I keep getting to the Cambria market too late and you have already sold out! I was dying to try the tempeh hominy chili – will it be in the market that replaced Soto’s any time soon? Thanks so much – I bought the other flavors they had and can’t wait to try them!

    • Hi Eve Marie, sorry, I’m just getting around to checking my blog comments and see you asked about the hominy soup and the new Soto’s market. My soups are in Soto’s True Earth Market now and currently they have a supply of the chipotle black bean soup. This one is quite similar to the Tempeh and hominy one so you may want to check it out! Thanks for reaching out and sorry for the delay in response!
