From Alejandra Owens at One Bite At A Time
*tear* It’s a sad weekend, guys. Last market of the season for the 14th & U Farmers Market. After this Saturday, the market will close until spring. Hours are 9 am to 1 pm.
Silver lining: those of us who ordered our turkeys (I told you!) get to pick them up on Saturday. Personally, I’ll be rocking the granny cart to lug my 15-pound birdy of love home.
Silver lining part II: the DC State Fair will be holding a bake sale in an effort to raise funds so they can become an official non-profit.
The DC Food Bloggers will be selling:
Bakalava, Cookies, Pumpkin Cupcakes with a Pumpkin Pie Spice Buttercream Frosting, Apple Spice Cupcakes filled and topped with a Cream Cheese Frosting, Pumpkin Pie Bars, Pumpkin Spice Balls Covered in White Chocolate, Double Decker Pumpkin Bread (Pumpkin bread stuffed with cream cheese filling), Pumpkin Bread with Streusel Topping, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, mini pumpkin pies, holiday cookies–oatmeal coconut-cranberry, brownies, Rice Krispy Treats, Ginger Snap Cookies, Apple Pies, and more.
Oh. That sounds terrrrrrible! So, if you don’t want to worry about dessert for Thanksgiving dinner, you can pick up some good stuff this weekend!
Also, I have it on good authority there will be hot apple cider for free tomorrow! Bring the kiddos! Bring the pups! It’s going to be a beautiful Saturday.
Other Thanksgiving items you can grab: bread cubes for stuffing, cheeses and jams for hors d’evours, brussel sprouts, lettuce mixes and plenty of eggs for all your baking needs.
