Fasika Mebrate is a native of Addis Ababa Ethiopia, who fell in love with Berkeley when she moved here to attend college in 2006. This was also the time she visited her first Farmer’s Market, the Thursday afternoon Ecology Center market on Shattuck!
Fasika’s lifetime passion for fresh, organic, high-quality food combined with her love of Farmer’s Markets and a deep connection to her home’s culture and culinary traditions, was a natural combination for the authentic, yet unique offering that she provides at market today. Ancient recipes of Africa are utilized to develop deep flavors in traditional dishes. However, she is not afraid to venture toward the inventive and combinatory…much like Berkeley itself. Try the Ethiopian grilled cheese sandwich!
Fasika is excited and honored to be a part of the Ecology Center Farmer’s Markets and looks forward to giving people an opportunity to enjoy a bit of her culture and vision as well as serving the community she loves.
