Farm Markets Help Bakeries Bloom

Farmers markets are some of the tastiest places on earth especially for lovers of all things baked.  Established bakeries, like Meriano’s Bake Shoppe, sell at farm markets in Connecticut because they want to support local producers and expand their market.  (Here are boxes of their Vienna Cookies we tasted at a farmers market this weekend. They have been using American Almond Products since 1975!  Many thanks.)

And baking enthusiasts like Todd Solek have created a new business.  Todd sells his flatbread pizzas at  the Coventry Farmers Market among others in Connecticut. We expect to see his business grow and grow in the coming years. (Of course don’t you just want one of those cool pizza trucks.)

Do YOU have a talent and passion for baking?  Are there Farmers Markets in your area?  Give them a call. You might just find yourself elbows deep in flour…. and loving it. 

Happy Baking!
