    Ok Folks, you were so helpful last time I needed to think up some new wording, maybe you all will work your magic again. 

    What would be the opposite of the "Soup Nazi?"

    A farm market soup vendor needs a new moniker and while his soup varieties and flavors rival the soup nazi, we're trying to think up a name that elicits a more positive and friendly image.

    Got any ideas?

    Mine were stupid-"The Soup Elves", "Steaming Pot Man", "Tim Tureen" and the like.

    Yes, I know, stoopid.

    Help us here and please, no french. It's a farmers' market-rustic, not frou-frou.

    Thanks

    "soup to nuts".....meaning not only the range, but also a play on the customers, as in selling soup to nuts!? okay, i know it's a bit rough...was just the first thing that came to mind.....or how about simply "Soup"....it's such a lovely word really and congers up everyone's favorite...

    "Simply Soup"

    So speaking of curses..... um,

    Cap'n Cauldron?

    They're trademarked?? But I just thought of it! That means that my thoughts are not original? That's a lot to digest, I need a minute.

    my computer is acting wonky so hopefully my post will go through this time...it keeps getting shorter!  i will type fast...foodnfoto, perhaps a few more ideas to spin...."Harvest Soups" or "Soup Harvest"     "Farmer John's(insert his name) Soup" or "Farmer John's Harvest Soup"   to me the use of the word harvest is rustic, grassroots and a organic connection,which as you know is very farmer's market...one last thought/word...'Vittles" as in 'Farmer John's Vittles"....too hokey?     what is the name of the soup vendor's stand now?  how did you fair with your rustic veggie tarts?

    funny meez, but i'm thinking now that 'vittles' might sound a little 'clampetty' to me...  a little too jethro and ellie mae or 'green acres' even for a farmer's market /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

    These are all great ideas

    Thanks folks

    While the vittles names are fun, we must not alienate our customer base as we do markets in
    NYC and the fabulous outer burbs.

    I Love "Soup Dog!"

    That will go over quite well at the Brooklyn market, I'm sure!
