I’m sure the first thing you think of when you think of a farmers market is the bounty of brightly colored fruits and vegetables available, but did you know that you can find some delicious, homemade breads and other baked goods as well. The Clear Lake Farmers Market offers several vendors that showcase a variety of their ‘made with love’, delectable treats. We have everything from sweet and savory breads, to pies, cookies, cupcakes, bars and more. And of course, you can’t forget the oooey, gooey cinnamon and caramel rolls that are just begging to be served with a great cup of coffee.
The homemade baked goods you’ll find at market are made fresh and without any of the preservatives and additives you’ll find in the products on the grocery store shelves. Many of our dedicated bakers wake in the wee hours of the morning to make sure they have the freshest and best product available to sell to you and your family. You can feel good about feeding your family something fresh that was made with care and love.
Another perk to buying your baked goods at the farmers market is there are plenty of gluten free options available as well. As gluten free baking is becoming more popular, many bakers are trying their hand at making a gluten free option that tastes just as good as the original version, with much success. Give them and try and see if you can tell the difference.
There is one important thing to be said about the baked goods at market. Be there early to get what you like! Many of our bakers will sell out early of their most popular items so come early and get your weekly staples along with something new to try. I must say there is not many things better in life than a slice of homemade bread, toasted, smeared with butter and homemade jam. Now that is a taste of summer!
So, if you’re finding yourself short on time and in need of a special baked item, then our vendors are there to help. Many of them will take special orders at market for your baked good needs and with the Fourth of July right around the corner, don’t wait! Get your orders in now. No one will ever know you didn’t slave over that blueberry pie for hours. We certainly won’t tell.
Stop by and check out all of our local bakers on Saturday mornings, from 9am-Noon, in the Surf Ballroom parking lot and be sure to follow us on Facebook and check out our website, clearlakefarmersmarket.com, to find out more information.
