First Market Selling Baked Goods

Today is the Day!

My friend invited me to attend her Mom’s Art Exhibit and sell my baked goods. For posterity I’ve attached a picture of her announcement

Event I attended to sell bread for first time

All the practicing and thought into packaging has culminated in my being able to have everything ready to go this morning.

Baked goods ready to load

This is indeed the most variety and volume of baked goods I’ve ever produced for one event.

Here is what my table looked like once set up:

I’ll update how it goes…


That was a great learning experience. I sold out of all my sourdough loaves, all my croissants and had only two each of baguettes and the Pain au Chocolat. About half my biscotti remained.

Next time I’ll have samples of biscotti out for people to taste. The people that came by had great questions and it was nice to see things I’d worked on appreciated and sold.
