Common Grounds Feria, new day

With all the fairs going on in Cuenca, Saturdays are getting a little crazy. Bernan’s will always be found at Common Grounds with our canned and dry foods. We are trying to help Cristian bring the best vendors to the restaurant that started it all almost 4 years ago. Things have sure changed. Common Grounds is trying to make it the vendors feria! He always listens to what we have to say and if something needs to be changed…he changes it. Cristian isn’t only the owner of Common Grounds, he is a wonderful chef and prepares some of the best food around.

After compiling input from vendors and shoppers … Cristian will be making some changes that will benefit everyone starting with the next feria at Common Grounds in October. Ferias will no longer be held on any Saturday of the month. He made a change once to avoid conflict with another feria but then yet another one popped up the same day. Now the ferias at Common Grounds will be on the 3rd Friday of the month. There will be no middle man… Christian will collect the table fees (only $10 per table) in advance so we know who will be at each feria. There will be a maximum of only 25 tables at each feria so there will be room for shoppers to have lunch without being too crowded. Cristian will have his menu for lunch along with lunch specials. He will no longer provide lunch to vendors, this will lower the price of the tables and that way if you want lunch you can order what you want.

We think Common Grounds is doing things right. You can contact Cristian and reserve your table for the next Feria on October 19th. Remember there are only 25 tables and he would like them prepaid before October 15th that way he will be able to advertise and let shoppers know just who to expect.

Hope to see you there.
