Thanks to Heartland Credit, a nice grant from the State of Wisconsin, and the really nice folks out at 51 Trailers in Stoughton - we have our brand new trailer!
The 2021 Northside Farmer's Market has been in full swing for about a month now, which has given me a chance to learn how to drive with the trailer attached. And with a full bakery rack stuffed with pastries no less! There was a bit of a learning curve, but I think I'm getting the hang of it!
This recent acquisition gives me a whole new avenue of possibilities for the bakery's future. We are starting renovation this week on this cute little trailer, and I have two giant sheets of Plexiglas in the back of my car which will become a built-in display window! I am excited for what this trailer can become and the opportunities that will open up as a result. I will be documenting our renovation as it goes to keep everyone in the loop!
In the meantime, we have also expanded our bakery offerings at the Northside Market to include 6" deep caramelized onion quiches and pain l'ancienne baguettes. I'm looking at a chocolate-chocolate croissant that we will fiddle with for this upcoming weekend (insert evil smile here). My amazing lady bakers (Elle, Marena, Olivia, and Jacina) continue to impress me every weekend with their dedication and bakery prowess. I'm so happy to have such a strong start to our third Market season, and thanks to all of our loyal customers to continuing to support this bakery dream!
Cheers - M
