Old Fashion Saturday Morning

The Farmers Market in McKinney was old fashion fun this morning. Thankfully we finally had a sunny day in North Texas and Chesnut Square is the most unique and historic little place. It was great seeing some of our customers from last weekend. What a fun getaway for anyone in the area to take a step back in time and load up on some fresh farm to market goods. We will be back at Chesnut Square next weekend....hope to see you there!

Coppell Farmers Market

Thanks to all of our new customers who came out to the Coppell Farmers Market this morning. It was great meeting you and we hope you enjoyed our fresh baked goods. It feels so good to be back in front of people sharing our love and passion for artisan bread. We will keep you posted on what upcoming Farmers Markets we will be at in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Our best sellers today were the Pain Au Chocolate and the Kalamata Olive & Thyme bread. We couldn't even complete our set up before we had a line of people waiting to buy our product that was still hot from the oven. Come and see us at the next market!
