Green Leaf Gourmet
Last week was amazing, seeing all the familiar faces that make having a stand at the Horton Farmer’s Market so special, meeting new friends and buying some delicious produce to share with family and friends over the weekend. I’m looking forward to repeating this all over again this weekend!!
I have incorporated Jane’s nutritional teas from Wildflowers Tea into many of my products for added health benefits while still enjoying a delicious treat. Stop by our stands to treat yourself or a friend to the best of organic treats and and tea all in one spot!
Back by popular demand are Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies, oh so delicious and gone almost as soon as they arrive at my stand. I also have an excellent selection of Gluten~free(and Vegan) superb treats, salads( Quinoa and Raw vegetable Salad) and dips. These sell out early every week no matter how many batches I bring, so come early to avoid disappointment or send me an email if you are arriving late so I can put some aside for you > email@example.com
** New** this week is a very refreshing summertime treat with the first raspberries of the season ~RASPBERRY LEMONADE Squares. You can also expect remarkable Date Squares, Scottish Cream Scones( sell out early every week), Double Chocolate Torte, addictive Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies and a beautiful selection of Gourmet Tarts and Fresh Fruit Galettes. This week I will also be SAMPLING some decadent Artichoke Tapenade.Can’t wait to treat you to more local, fresh and organic! ~ See you at the Market ~
