CEM Cookware ~ Pottery
Jenni and Greg met in South Florida, completed their studies at Georgetown and University of Maryland respectively and moved to Bogota, Columbia where they mastered the "centuries old" method of cooking with a unique type of pottery.

Jenni and Greg bring to the Farm Women's Market a cookware tradition prized in South America. Discover the benefits of working with a truly "down to earth" style of cooking. CEM Cookware visits the Market Saturdays. They will add additional Market days as we approach the Fall/Holiday season.
Black clay Chamba cookware is well-known throughout Colombia and is used in restaurants and homes for preparing and serving traditional dishes. Its origins can be traced back at least 700 years to vases and pitchers found in pre-Columbian archaeological sites. It is still made in the traditional manner, by families in the village of La Chamba, on the banks of the Magdalena River in Central Colombia. Each piece is hand-crafted using local clays, burnished by hand and fired on-site. The painstaking process and natural materials give the dishes an authentic, distinctive and elegant look, yet Chamba is strong enough to use on the stovetop, oven or microwave. Chamba cookware heats evenly and is renowned for retaining heat.
Gourmet Weekend Entertaining...
When the weekend is around the corner and you don't feel like cooking, stop by the Market for a delightful quick "take home" meal to satisfy family and friends. And, for that sweet tooth afterwards, be sure to include a treat from Spring Mill Bread Co. or La Bohemia Bakery.
Spring Mill Bread Co. provides fresh muffins and sweets in the morning plus a wide variety of breads including vegetarian and vegan options. Perhaps even more scrumptious are their fresh baked Challahs and Apple pies... Everything is made from scratch with no preservatives before the sun rises.
