Tucson's Saturday St. Phillips Farmers Market and our upcoming April Dining Club Dinner

At our table at the Healthy You Network Symposium last year......

We are very pleased and excited to be starting the Saturday Weekly St. Phillips Farmers Market here in Tucson this Saturday, April 6th! This event is located at St. Phillips Plaza, on N. Campbell just south of the junction of River. Hours are 9 am until 1 pm, and there is plenty of off-street parking in the Plaza.  You will be able to come choose from a wide displayed assortment of our healthy baked goods in a market setting---  without having to place a special order.  But don't get us wrong - you can still place special orders, and pick them up at the farmers market each and every week.  I have really missed doing the farmers market in Hollywood that I did for 13 years, so this should be fun!  Once again: market hours for April are 9 am to 1 pm.  (In May, it changes to 8 am to noon). We would also like to remind you that we will have a vendor's table at The Healthy You Network's Symposium at the Doubletree in Tucson on May 4th and 5th.)

Each week, we will post what we are planning to bring.  This week we will have:  Fruit Fusion Bars, Diabetic-friendly Coconut Cake, assorted muffin flavors (Carrot Cake Muffin, Lemon Raspberry, Pumpkin Cranberry, Peach and Blueberry Oat Bran, Banana Chocolate Chip), Chocolate Cherry Cake, Fresh Fruit Tarts (individual size), Fresh Orange Coconut Pineapple Coffee Cake, Brownies, Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies, and Parfaits.  We hope to see you there!

In March, we did not have a Dining Club Dinner as Ted and I had to go to Northern California for my mother's 91st birthday, my parents' 61st wedding anniversary, and my niece Lauren's wedding.  Then we rented a 16 ft. truck and proceeded to load up all my baking equipment, farmers market tables and canopy, etc, including a storage shed, and drove it back here to Tucson.  Ted was the hero, organizing, dismantling, carefully packing and loading... and then driving all the way back. Since returning, we have been busily dealing with all the stuff we now have at home, much of which goes to the commercial kitchen.

With the start of April we are free to host another Dining Club dinner at our home on the east side of Tucson, and so we have scheduled it for Sunday, April 28th, at 5 pm.  This will be our fourth event, and we are looking forward to it!  The weather is fine this time of year, and so we shall be back out on the veranda again, enjoying  Springtime outdoor dining at its best.  Please email if you would like an invitation.

Greenheart Bakery will also participate in the upcoming Vegan Bakesale to be held on Saturday, April 20 at All Saints Lutheran Church at Speedway and Campbell from 10 am to 3 pm.  This event is organized by Healthy You Network, in conjunction with the Worldwide Vegan Bakesale; groups all over the world are holding vegan bakesales on that day!  The proceeds will be donated to The Humane Society here in Tucson :-).  Last weekend we donated an 11-inch Fresh Fruit Tart to Equine Voices fundraiser for their silent auction:
