Well, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks, but I am so happy I took on the challenge of having my own table at a local Farmers’ Market! I wasn’t able to bring my homemade organic bath scrubs to sell, but I got to make tons of healthy delicious organic baked goods, like muffins, brownies, scones, cookies, biscottis, cupcakes, and power balls… And I got to meet lots of interesting people, and gain a few new readers on this blog! A big welcome to them! 🙂
Last Saturday was my last day there, but it’s been such a success, you never know, I might get the chance to come back sometimes (although sadly, other than replacing one of the couple of bakers when they go on vacation, chances are slim from what I’ve understood). From all the feedback I’ve received, there is definitely a need for high-quality organic baked goods that offer options to people with various allergies, intolerance and preferences (like gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, vegan, paleo, etc.), and that actually taste good!!!
I’ve experimented with quite a few new recipes during these last two weeks and have lots to tell you about on the blog!
I was actually asked to participate in a much smaller, special event, mobile farmers’ market this week, Wednesday September 18th, at the University Heights Public School, 27 Ford Crescent, in London, Ontario, 3:30 to 6:30pm. It’s part of a wonderful program to teach kids about healthy eating called Seed-to-plate. The market is open to the public, so feel free to stop by if you can!
I’ll give it a try, not sure if it’ll be a good market or not for me, but I guess if it doesn’t work, we’ll just have lots of muffins and goodies to freeze! haha
Here are some pictures of my table at the big farmers’ market I did for the past 2 weeks. Ok, I’m biased, but isn’t this one of the cutest farmers’ market table ever?? 😉

Everything looks amazing!
I have a question though, how long does your bake goods, specially the banana bread lasts? and how do you explain the storage, I have come to find that if refrigerated they turn out very bad.
Please let me know!
Baked goods are always best fresh, but I keep my muffins under a glass cloche for a few days on my kitchen counter. If there are fruits in it, like banana, it doesn’t last as long as it “turns” bad. I typically keep these in the fridge after the 2nd day out. They need to be dry first, otherwise they turn yucky. My husband eats muffins so fast, I rarely have any left after 2-3 days. haha

Hey! what a cute stand you made! Very inspiring=). In terms of hot weather conditions, what do you suggest to use to keep baked goods from melting from the heat, and or being in the heat in general? =/
Thank you! My little trick was to put cool packs under the box or stand 🙂
