Dice Tomatoes: Carrie Hogan’s Fresh52 Debuts At New Las Vegas Tivoli Village

They seem to made for each other.  When you create an eye-popping Mediterranean village including amazing stone work quarried from a dozen sites in seven countries, the only thing missing would be to  line the narrow cobble stone streets with a great farmers / artisan market.

It really works.

Carrie Hogan, the passionate owner and promoter of Fresh52 held on Sundays at Sansone’s retail center on Eastern Avenue just south of the 215, has taken her loyal group of farmers and artisans to a new Saturday morning venue at the new remarkable Tivoli Village adjacent to the Bocca Park shopping center in Summerlin.

I had a chance to interview Carrie in a coffee shop across from her booth to find out how she managed to partner with Tivoli to produce such a great event.

Listen in…!!
