Are We Hurricane Hardy?

Well we do have weights for the tent and hopefully the residuals of the hurricane won't affect your fun at the Frederick Farmer's Market this week (Saturdays 10:00 am-1:00 pm on Baughman's Lane, behind the Holiday Inn). Our lemonade professionals will be standing by with sweet/tart (but not too much of either) classic or strawberry lemonade, shaken to order as always. This week we'll also have another great, vegan scone for you to try. They were a hit last weekend and we think you won't be able to tell the difference between this and our traditional butter scone. We'll also have a cranberry orange scone made with our own home-ground wheat. We obtained 50 lbs of soft wheat and have been grinding it into whole wheat pastry flour. If you'd like to purchase some of the flour and borrow a recipe to get you started, let our volunteers at the market know. And, even though the weather went warmer for us this week, we promised soda bread and we'll deliver it. Whole loaves are available for your breakfast or dinner. It's great with some sweet, creamery butter that has just a hint of salt. Whichever of our products are your favorites, we'll be glad to see you.

Our Farmer's Market booths are staffed entirely with volunteers in Frederick and Middletown (on Thursdays). The middle of September is looking a little sparse for volunteers though so we need your help. Our booth is a fun way to enjoy the weather (rain or shine), meet some interesting Frederick people (as well as some out-of-towners) and don't forget that you get to sample one of our baked goods and a lemonade "on us" as a way of saying thank you for helping us out. If you'd like to volunteer with us in Frederick, click here.

Don't forget us when the Farmer's Markets close later this fall. Cakes for Cause can help with cakes, dessert trays, cookie baskets and other delicious stuff to make your holiday events special. We'll have menus at the Middletown and Frederick markets this week.

Also, if you want to be wearing the hippest, hottest new t-shirt in town, we can hook you up. Only $20, they're a chocolate brown (somehow appropriate) fitted T with our signature blue lettering. Our logo is on the front and one of our taglines, "Everyone Deserves Dessert." is on the back. As with everything we sell, all the proceeds from the t-shirt sales go to support the mission of the organization and we appreciate your ongoing support.
