Tails & Trotters, the perennial farmer's market favorite thanks to its hazelnut-fed pork products, has a retail store in its sights — and owners Aaron Silverman and (former clarklewis chef) Morgan Brownlow are hoping your addiction to their goodies will help fund the project.
Silverman and Brownlow will soon begin fundraising for some start-up capital through Kickstarter, a micro-lending platform that collects pledges from individuals. And to publicize their campaign, Tails & Trotters will be holding free prosciutto tastings around town beginning this Friday through September: Portland stops include Foster & Dobbs, Cheese Bar, Papa Haydn, and Park Kitchen. More info about T&T: Retail as it becomes available.
