Hunt Street Farmer's Market Wrapup

Despite dark skies and momentary bouts of mist, we had another fabulous turn out at the Hunt Street Market once again. 

As the calendar ticks forward into autumn, I’m hearing more and more requests for PUMPKIN.  This week we sold out of our Pumpkin Muffins and Vegan/Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars quite early.  Customers also delighted over the Vegan Salted Chocolate Hand Pies, Double Chocolate Walnut Cookies, Coconut Macaroons, and Bear Claws.

Joel fried up Chocolate/Coconut, Cinnamon/Cardamom, Curry, Sugar and Old Fashioned Cake Style Donuts.  Additionally he fried and filled the Brioche Donuts with Christmas Cream.  Unfilled Brioche Donuts were also available with Vietnamese Coffee Dipping Sauce. 

Samples for tasting included: Chocolate Babka, Vegan Thai Curry Hand pies, and Cranberry Scone.

I’m very excited to announce our Customer of the Week!  Pictured below is Joe R. of Durham.  Joe is a General Manager for a company in the RTP, in his free time he enjoys, eating at Ninth Street Bakery, going to the Farmer’s Market, golfing and spending time with his family.  Joe’s favorite items from Ninth Street Bakery are our cream filled doughnuts.  Joe explained to me that, “They remind me of the Homemade Cannoli my Mom and Aunt Ann used to make when I was a boy, growing up outside of Pittsburgh.”  We sent Joe and his Daughter, Karen home with a free loaf of our Chocolate Babka.

I hope to see you and your Grandma & Grandpa out at the Market next Saturday in celebration of National Grandparents Day!
