St. Phillips Farmers Market

It's been a good August at St. Phillips Farmers Market (SE corner of River and Campbell).  Some weekends were hotter than others, but as we head into September, relief is ahead!
Please note:  we will NOT be at the market on Labor Day Weekend.  (Alaine has to go to California again to take care of some things for her parents.)  We do plan to be there the following three weekends:  12/13, 19/20, 26/27, as we are there both Saturday and Sunday, 8 am to noon.  Yes, summer hours continue until October.
During these hot months, we're not bringing layer cakes to the market.  You can see Fresh Plum Cakes, Banana Cream Pies (on ice), and our savory items above (also on ice):  Watermelon Gazpacho, Organic Quinoa Salad, Chocolate Cherry Mousse, Lasagna, and sandwiches: Roasted Veggies in Pesto Panini, Hummus Veggie Slaw, and Tuno.

On Wednesday, September 16th and Wednesday the 30th, we will be at the U of A Main Campus Farmers Market at the UA Mall, 10 am to 2pm (1303 E. University Blvd).

And a preview of early October:  October 3rd and 4th, we'll be at Earth Harmony Festival at Avalon Gardens in Tumacacori.  Lots of fun events coming up as the weather gets milder!

We are currently in Wyoming at Water Valley Ranch:  www.watervalleyranch.com.  We are baking and cooking for guests here, and enjoying the beauty and surroundings.  We startled deer several times yesterday out walking, and I saw antelope for the first time.  The weather is perfect, in the '80's.  (Such a relief from Tucson!)  We shall be here until July 1st, when we drive back to Tucson.  Until then, you can send an email with orders for July, or questions:  alaine@greenheartbakery.com.  (Our phones do not work up/out here.)

Thank you, and see you soon!
