Fire up the's another week at the Frederick Farmer's Market with Cakes for Cause

If you haven't yet come out, the Farmer's Market is on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. It's located on Baughman's Lane (off Route 40) behind the Holiday Inn in Frederick. I heard a rumor that there might be corn this week but no promises!

This week we'll be featuring our (now standard) cheddar chive cream scone as well as a cranberry orange butter scone. Both are great heated up in the oven for Sunday morning as are our chocolate and plain croissants. 350 degrees for 10 minutes crisps them back up to how they tasted fresh out of the oven. We'll also be experimenting with a whole wheat burger bun for your weekend celebrations. We'll have our oatmeal bread back this week...because of the increased humidity, it just wasn't up to our standards last week. And have you tried our strawberry lemonade? We now have a core group of lemonade professionals just waiting to shake it up for you!

We'll also be selling bags of dry bread crumbs. What to use them for you ask? Slather a little dijon mustard on a salmon fillet, press dried bread crumbs on top, saute crumb-side down, flip and you have crusted salmon to die for. You can also use them to bread the zucchini squash I saw at the market last week and either bake or fry a yummy side dish...when the tomatoes come out (or if you already have green tomatoes), you can do the same.

Don't forget, our baker is going to be in Denver doing a wedding cake next week. We will have a limited selection as a result--scones, granola, peanut butter crunch bars, and lemonade. She'll be back the following week though with your croissants and breads.

Your support has been great, we have sold out of our products every week and we have met so many interesting people that are willing to help us reach our goal. Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.

If you would like to cook Cakes for Cause' bread crumbs with tomatoes, as this letter suggested, Jim (Tomato et al.) have had tomatoes for the past two weeks. I would think more farmers will have tomatoes this Saturday too.
