We are having a great time at the Gettysburg Farmers Market each Saturday. The weather has been extremely pleasant and it is so interesting to meet the visitors to Gettysburg. This week we had a visitor from Maine that tried a PA whoopie pie, and a visitor from Hawaii that was tickled to find out there really is such a thing as shoofly pie!

We have had 4 weeks of market so far this year.  The 21st of May there was no market.   This past week was the most challenging of all.  I like to start the baking early on Friday and finish up in the late afternoon.   Due to a violent wind storm we had no electric for 20 hours which took us into the late afternoon hours on Friday.  We had electric to bake one ovenful while mixing the breads,  then lost electric again.    The baking was mostly finished by 11pm.  The rest was finished right before  it was time to
