A few local bloggers recieved an invitation to try some of the goods at the All Good Bakers stall at the Delmar farmers market this past Saturday. They are starting up the area’s first Community Supported Bakery (CSB), and wanted to get the word out.
As you can tell by the cider donut above, I also joined up with the Profussor and his (non)fussy family to check out the All Good Bakers.
First and foremost, Mrs. Fussy does exist! And she is awesome! We were initially side tracked by the 4 Corners table, which sold some really solid pumpkin and apple cider donuts for $0.50 each.
We made our way over to the All Good Bakers – dontcha just love the graphics? Read what Daniel B. thinks here.
Why hello! Table of baked goods!
This is Nick, half of the dynamic duo that makes up the All Good Bakers.
We sampled a slice of Rustic Italian bread. It had a tight crumb, and was very moist. The breads from All Good Bakers are all locally sourced and organic whenever possible. The flours are organic, heartier, and denser that used in the breads.
We also got a cinnamon bun to try. Well, we almost got two, but they were super popular that morning, and the Profussor and I insisted on splitting one. First off, I love the generous slathering of frosting.
And the nice looking crumb action on the side.
Digging into it revealed lots of layers jam packed with cinnamon and sugar. Oh, and guess what? These were vegan. There was a generous amount of vanilla extract that made it taste really buttery, too. They layers were so moist and not at all dry like most other cinnamon buns I’ve eaten.
Good to the very center. And there was some nice buttery crust on the bottom, too. These large cinnamon buns retail for $2.50. Totally worth picking up, too. I know where I’m going the next time I’m craving cinnamon buns!
Okay, so now do you want to be a member of the CSB?
Shares begin November 3, 2010, and the cut off date for signing up is October 24th (but they ask you sign up as soon as possible). You can even specify what kind of baked good you’d like. How awesome is that?
Share pricing for 26 weeks is: $156 for 1 unit per week, $312 for 2 units per week, $468 for 3 units per week.
Pick ups will be on Wednesdays from 5 pm – 7 pm in Delmar (Delmar Reformed Church on 386 Delaware Ave, Delmar, NY) and Albany, with the Albany location still to be determined.
What are you waiting for? Email them and sign up! If you aren’t much of a baker, then this is right up your alley – local, mostly organic bread every single week.
After that, there was a Peruvian stall that had piping hot fried things coming out of the fryer. The Profussor was immediately drawn over and ordered one. They were called yuca rellenos ($3), and came with a little side of green peruvian sauce. Yummy cilantroy creamy goodness with a little kick.
I GOT SOME OF IT, tooo!!! Yaaaay! It was also super good. Nice fried exterior, thick yuca walls, and a dollop of meaty goodness in the center. Tasted really beefy and intense, like chuck or brisket. A little on the oily side with the filling, but overall really worth getting hot out of the fryer (I don’t know how they’d stand up under the steam trays). I have found my next food project.
