"Food, a French man told me once, is the first wealth. Grow it right, 
and you feel insanely rich, no matter what you own."  ~ Kristin Kimball
Featured Vendor / Producer:   Simple Man Foods
Simple Man Foods began when two buddies embarked on an 8 hour road trip to go salmon fishing.  Along the way, they came upon a beef jerky store that their product in various flavors by the pound.  Needless to say, the jerky tasted great and it did not survive to see the final destination.  Both being very mindful of their diet, and figuring that they each consumed about two weeks worth of sodium, the idea to produce a low sodium alternative was born.  Not wanting to sacrifice taste, the Simple Man team tested recipes in their home kitchens for almost a year.  Finally four delicious flavors were chosen and brought to market.

The folks at Simple Man strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle through both diet and exercise.  Eating sensibly and intense workouts are routine for them.  They developed their products for themselves as well as for those who share their mindset.

Simple Man Foods promises to bring their customers the best tasting and most healthy jerky on the market.  They always appreciate feedback and are constantly working to develop new flavors and products.  Reward yourself and enjoy their jerky.

While viewing the Woodward, imagine what it must have been like to perform here.
Take in the 19th century architecture, admire the original paintings still hanging
on the walls, and if you listen closely and quietly, you may even hear a
fiddle or banjo picking out a familiar tune.
