2000th Bagel Sold!

This past weekend the 2000th bagel (normal size, didn't bother figuring in the large or giant bagels into the equation) was purchased by the daughter of a fellow Lawrence Farmer's Market vendor.  As a bonus for making this landmark purchase, she also received one of my giant everything bagels (has the same amount of dough as 6 regular bagels).  

So far this year I have used over 450 pounds of flour between all the bagels and breads made this season.

Record Breaking Weekend

This weekend I will be selling my 2000th bagel.  Whomever purchases this bagel (assuming I can keep accurate count) will get a surprise with a giant everything bagel I'm saving for the occasion.  I'm also increasing the number of bagels I'm bringing to market by a dozen of the sweet flavors and with a couple more large bagels.  We'll see if this means that I bring something home rather than selling out before 10:30am like I have for the last couple of weeks.

Just a reminder (assuming anyone actually reads this blog) that I will not be at market on October 4th, and I may be away the Saturday after Halloween.

That was a lot of rain.

I didn't attend last week's Market because I was going to be out of town.  Foul weather kept me from that road trip, but it also saved me the hassle of baking for a slow market in heavy rain.

This week will include the regular selection, including the new lemon ginger bagels that have been so well received.  I've been selling out early, so don't wait until late if you want bagels.

New Flavor and Away Dates

This past Saturday I introduced a new flavor, Lemon Ginger.  It has gone over well and will be in the rotation from now on.  

I won't be at Market this Saturday, or the first Saturday of October.
