I “heart” cupcakes & macarons from the Baker’s Market

October 19th, 2010 · No Comments

If you’ve never been to the Baker’s Market (in the warehouse of the WEDDING THINGS showroom) in Vancouver, BC…what are you waiting for?!?  It’s the perfect reason to book your appointment and also taste samples from the very talented and creative bakers and pastry chefs in our community.

Many of them are amateur bakers on the verge of becoming professional, others are fanatical bakers who just want to share the fruits of their labour with people who can really appreciate them.  What’s on your list of sweets? Cupcakes, bundt cakes, Liege belgian waffles, Parisian macarons…check, check, check & check.

 Be sure to sign up for the first ever Baker’s Market Cupcake Eating Contest on Nov. 6. 

Great prizes and bragging rights too.

See you at the next Baker’s Market.  Saturdays, 11- 3pm.  If you are a serious foodie and don’t want to go home disappointed, be there at 11 am for the very best selection of everything.

There are 8 vendors who come every week until Dec. 11, and all the other bakers are new every week.  Which is a great excuse to come back again and again.

 ps  there are just a few tables left for bakers who wish to sell their goodies.

Attention all BC brides who have a sweet tooth

September 21st, 2010 · No Comments

Hey, I know that all you brides are watching your waistlines…but sometimes it’s nice to reward yourself with something deliciously sweet & wickedly good.  For anyone who will be in Vancouver, BC from Oct. 2 - Dec. 11 on Saturdays only, be sure to visit the Baker’s Market, inspired by good ol’ farmers markets, yet only better since it’s all ’bout the baked goods.

Save the environment by bringing your own containers to load up on goodies like Parisian macarons, whoopie pies, vegan, gluten-free, pies, artisanal breads, scones, muffins, and of course, lots and lots of cupcakes.

 Did I mention gourmet cookies, tarts, pies, bars, all overloaded and bursting with organic ingredients, hand-made chocolates, Liege Belgian waffles?

 TIP: if you are a serious foodie and really want to support all your local bakers, be sure get there early at 11 am when it starts.  You’ll have the very best selection before all the goodies start selling out.


ps  collect all the business cards from the bakers and you’ll have some really great contacts for your wedding dessert bar or wedding cake too!
