A great find! February 8, 2009

Posted by fetzthechemist in Uncategorized.

My town has a small farmers’ market each Saturday morning. Spring, summer, and autumn bring lots of sellers of fresh vegetables and fruits. This gets going in late April. Now, though, there are only a few vegetable sellers and local craft sellers, plus a kettle corn stand, a stand for artisan breads, one for homemade Mexican food.

Then last week there was a new stand! A German baker, literally immigrated from Germany. He had cookies and cakes last week and was liberal with samples to taste of everything. I bought some ginger cookies.

Those were the best! Tasty and slightly crisp without being hard. I looked forward to today and getting more, plus some of the other cookies I had sampled last week.

So I bought lemon almond cookies, more ginger cookies, and some shortbreads with either strawberry, raspberry, or apricot jam in the middle. He also had more other things today – streudels, pies, coffeecakes, and cakes. I tasted several and got an apple streudel in addition to the three bags of cookies.

He makes so many tasty things that I can rotate selections for many weeks to come. Yum!
