Another New Vendor For The Roosevelt Island Farmers Market - Red Velvet Cupcakes & Rice Pilaf

Image of Vadim & Friends At Roosevelt Island Farmers Market

The Roosevelt Island Saturday Farmers Market continues to expand with new offerings and vendors. Vadim (pictured on the right) and his friends are offering Red Velvet cupcakes and what I think was a rice pilaf dish. They also provided their own music.  I did not try the Red Velvet Cupcakes but I did sample the rice pilaf and it was very tasty.

Blogger, A Girl Bakes In New York, makes the Red Velvet Cupcakes and writes:
... I've also recently been commissioned by a coworker to make 100 cupcakes for selling at his stall at a farmer's market on Roosevelt Island this weekend....
... The cupcakes for Roosevelt Island are red velvet (this flavor continues to haunt me) with cream cheese frosting, and will be decorated with a red "RI" for Roosevelt Island (but whenever I see it abbreviated I keep thinking Rhode Island...).  Red and white are the colors because according to my coworker, red and white are the island's colors.  Probably because of the Roosevelt Island Tram...
Stop by and say hi to Vadim and his friends next Saturday at the Roosevelt Island Farmers Market. Let me know how the Red Velvet Cupcakes taste. If they come up with a cupcake with a peanut butter filling - count me in to buy several.

Thank you for good words. We have been preparing Uzbek pLove (pilaf) for last 3 Saturdays and every time it has been a great success with RI residents. This Saturday we also introduced Red Velvet cupcakes baked by my co-worker at Bloomingdale's. They were so tasty and visually appealing that we got an offer from Trellis management to introduce it there too. As far as I know all were sold out today but there will be another delivery shortly:)

We definitely have fun doing the pLove. For us it is not only about good and healthy food, but organizing an event where people would learn and try something new from another culture. And we planning to continue organizing this kind of events on the island in the future.

Kind Regards,
Sasha, Shavhat and Vadim

Hi and thanks for the mention of my blog... Hopefully you got to try the red velvet cupcakes! And just fyi, it's not exactly a peanut butter filled cupcake, but I do make a peanut butter cupcake with a Reese's peanut butter cup inside. :)

Now if only Trellis would update its image and interior to match the deliciousness of red velvet cup cakes that would be awesome.


Mmmmmmm - peanut butter cupcakes with Reese's peanut butter cups - please, please, please A Girl Bakes In New York make some for Roosevelt Island.
