We're Selling at the Farmers Market!

She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Proverbs 31:24



She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household...
Proverbs 31:15


These last couple of weeks have been REALLY busy! We've been participating in a couple of local Farmers Markets! The first one was at 9:00 a.m. so we started baking at 4:00 that morning. This past Friday it didn't begin until 3:00 p.m. so we had a bit more time. It was a much larger market, so we still started baking at 5:00 a.m. to be able to bring many more items. As you will see in the pictures, we baked and baked and baked and baked.

The baked goods included ~
Challah Bread
Jalapeño Cheese Bread
Daddy's Favorite Sticky Buns
Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


I also had a selection of Aprons and Knitted Baby items. Elizabeth was the one who made those CUTE flip~flops.


We sold out of all of the baked goods within the first couple of hours. (Daddy was sad that there were none left over for him. :-) We had SOOO much fun. We are now getting ready for this Saturday's market.

Here are some of the 'Highlights' of our first two markets:

We are starving for REAL AMERICAN bread here in Korea. That looks SO good. I think it looks like could have come out of a shop!
I love the apron you made for me before we left. I has come in handy. Thank you SO MUCH for all the purses!

I love Homemade Bread. All of the loaves look so good.
The Aprons and Flip Flops look very cute. My dd wears Flip Flops a lot. Even in Winter. Don't know how she does it.

Wishing You Much Success at the Market. Maybe you'll have to make some extra favorites for your Dad, to enjoy.

I love the Farmer's Markets and love reading your blog.

Warmly,
Flassie

That is so neat!

I have just finished reading your blog all the way through, and you girls amaze me! I knit, scrapbook, and start lots of business ventures (not all work, but at least I've tried!). I also write. You're blog has been quite an inspiration, and I'm glad my aunt shared it with me.

I will definitely be checking back!

God Bless,
Audra Elizabeth
