Many of the items are hand made by New York City artisans.
"Potager began as an idea to create a space for a community to form around sustainable gardening
community and delicious cooking, " Jessica Peck explains. The pop up shop is a big step in realizing her vision for Potager. "Ultimately, the goal is to have a place for retail as well as classes and workshops: a place where people can get inspired about the whole process of food."
The Potager pop-up shop has been graciously hosted by Pietro Costa and Denver Butson of Vespa Properties. They write:
"VESPA Properties Group (aka VESPA Projects) is proud to continue to give back to the community by offering their lovely storefront/office/gallery space, pro-bono, to Jess from Potager for her pop-up store. Having curated and hosted eight art exhibitions, a few performances and poetry readings, and a number of political and not-for-profit fundraisers, VESPA (and its owners, visual artist Pietro Costa and poet Denver Butson) are happy that their space can help this young entrepreneur launch her business -- with carefully chosen, durable and aesthetically elegant kitchen and garden products."
