Bake Sale Showdown!

Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a good week! This Saturday is our last Farmers' Market of August! We have a great market planned with lots of fresh produce as always, fresh cut flowers, a wide variety of delicious baked goods and breads, wine, hot sauce, preserves, maple syrup, local meats, and oh so much more. Below, I've added some highlights from last week's farmers' market! We saw ground cherries, eggplants, the first of the squash, fresh elderberries, pork pies, tomato tarts, sunflowers, gluten free butter tarts, alpaca wool, crazy flowers, popped water lily seeds, and lots of other goods! Look below for pictures! A hugely exciting thing happening this week and next in London is the Bake Sale Showdown because not only is it being filmed at the market one day, but one of our vendors is also participating! Read below for more information.

Bake Sale Showdown!

Bake Sale Show Down is a competition baking show that is filming in London, Ontario this season! Each episode, two local teams go head to head in a bake sale battle to determine whose tasty treats can raise the most money for charity. Each episode is also filmed at a recognizable location within the city! Here’s the schedule:

  • Springbank Gardens by Storybook: August 29- 9am-12pm
  • Wortley Village on the Green: September 1- 9am-12pm
  • Covent Garden Market: September 3- 9am-12pm
  • The Factory: September 5- 9am-12pm

Two different teams face off each episode, and this Saturday, one of our very talented vendors, The Welsh Baker, will be competing! She is supporting The Grace Cafe and all proceeds from the baked goods purchased from her at the bake show will go to them! How exciting! Make sure to stop by!
