Farmer's Market - June

We had our opening for the St. David Farmer's Market this past Saturday. For awhile there, we weren't even sure if we were going to have a market this year, the board members were getting burned out. Anyway, it all came together and the vendors and the community were glad! :) We aren't a real big market but we do have nice community support and lots of regular customers. It is still a wee bit early for most summer produce here but one of the vendors has a lovely greenhouse and she brought some amazing tomatoes, cucumbers and Swiss chard. Another of our produce vendors brought lots of greens, onions, potatoes and garlic. We also had local salsa and honey and several vendors had eggs. I took baked goods. In the past, I have taken yeast breads, rolls, and artisan breads but decided to change things this year. I have expanded my offerings to include cookies, brownies, muffins, and scones and will cut back on the breads. I wasn't having as much fun as I used to and by changing things up a bit, I have rediscovered the joy that baking brings me!


Things went well for our first market, everyone seemed to have a good day, and I'm looking forward to this coming Saturday. I know I need to make twice as many scones as last week and more brownies too! LOL!!

Candy, I am glad your Farmer's Market decided to open this summer. I wish we had a local Farmer's Market.

Hope you share some of your popular baking goodies, if you haven't already!
