per usual i feel like i have so much to tell you! it has been a blue ribbon weekend for ye olden dovetail bakery! yesterday was the first first FIRST ST. JOHN'S FARMERS MARKET!!!! it was absolutely too much fun! there were so many smiling faces, painfully cute dogs, old friends, new friends, incredible produce, and handsome baked goods!
smiling faces! (and a painfully cute dog!)
and handsome baked goods. (going, going...)
i think everybody was overjoyed to see the amazing turn out. we were in good company when we started selling out of everything just a couple of hours into the market. in fact marly (what a gem!) ran back to the kitchen (one block away from the market site) and baked more blueberry muffins on the spot! she packed the just baked muffins into a tub, grabbed the rolling cart and rolled them back to the market just in time to refill the display with still warm muffins. does it get any better than that?
in addition to sticky buns, rhubarb & blueberry buns, cookies & loaf cakes, lauren made a few loaves of cinnamon swirl bread and a couple of batards, but both were completely gone within minutes of the opening bell! we are pleased to let you know that there will be more bread next time! but you might want to get there early if you want to be sure to get some! thanks for a great first market everybody!!! come by and see us next saturday july 18 from 9am-1pm in the heart of downtown st. johns!
we are also proud to share with you our mention on PORTLANDPICKS.COM!!! check out the "chick picks" section for july 10th. here's a little teaser...
"Brace yourself. The creamiest, most buttery and delicious cupcakes we’ve ever eaten are… vegan. Completely nonsensical, but utterly true—Dovetail Bakery’s locally-made concoctions are to die for, even though they’re 100% cruelty-free."
