Are you coveting one of the French market baskets from Laguna Beach-based French Basketeer featured in Orange Coast’s December Dining section? I think it’s time to satisfy that yearning, and maybe cover some gift-giving as well.
During the month of December owner Andrea Drexelius will be selling her baskets at the Thursday downtown Santa Ana Farmers Market, and they’re always available on her website. Through Dec. 25, she’s running a multi-pronged holiday special, offering 20 percent off your purchase plus free shipping—use promotion code CYBER. And wait, there’s more: Whether online or in person at the farmers market, mention “net bags” and receive a set of three organic cotton produce bags worth $12 free with your basket purchase.
So, back to the most difficult part: deciding on a color and style.
While you’re on frenchbasketeer.com, check out Andrea’s blog. She’s a part-time Burgundy resident, and it’s a Francophile’s dream—though with a good dose of Laguna Beach living, and lots of O.C. farmers marketing. (Those beautiful baskets fulfill their intended purpose.) She also teaches cooking classes in her Laguna home—I’ll have more about those later. Sign up before the Dec. 25 special ends and apply the 20 percent discount to classes, too.
