The Saturday Delmar Farmer's Market is ending for the season next Saturday, December 18. It is with a mixture of sadness and relief that we approach our final 2 markets of the year. The communal atmosphere with customers and vendors will be missed, the opportunity to rest welcomed.
We have been trading bread and baked goods all year for non-gmo/no spray vegetables (Farmers Jon & DJ), grass-fed beef and pork (JoAnn @ Tilldale Farms), organic free-range chicken (Cheryl @ Franzen's Scenic Acres) and eggs (Ross & Liz @ Raven's Roost Farms, Tilldale, Franzen's), even handmade soap (Herbal Bliss - incredible combinations!). The relationships we and others have developed with these producer-only, local crafters of fine food and other agricultural & fair-trade products has strengthened our community and enriched our lives. Everyone has worked really hard and the people of Albany & Delmar have been extremely supportive. We'll sorely miss everyone over the winter and would like the mark the occasion so,
We're holding an End of the Market Giveaway!
AT STAKE: A Single Membership in our Community Supported Bakery for the remainder of the season (worth over $100 for weekly, locally-sourced, primarily organic bread & baked goods through April 27).

After December, we'll be focusing on the CSB and researching what we need to do to open our little retail space on Quail St. You'll still be able to special order our breads and baked goods in (reasonable quantity) bulk or you can of course join our CSB!
