petitfourprofileLes amis du Fromage at 843 East Hastings Street is hosting another great Pop Up Shop this Saturday. They have invited their new friends from Petit Four Pastries who they discovered during a recent visit to the Baker’s Market in South Vancouver. The upcoming Pop Up Shop will showcase the talents of the four bakers behind Petit Four Pastries being Ada, Alyssa, Carol and Minnie. The ladies met in pastry school a couple of years ago and opened their new venture in January of this year. Their sweet treats have been selling like hot cakes from the get go.  This Saturday, the ladies from Petit Four Pastries will have a selection of decorative cookies, mint brownies, almond financiers which happen to be gluten free and small bite-sized desserts also known as petit four.  The Pop Up Shop is located directly next to les amis du fromage’s East Van location at 843 East Hastings Street and will be open from Noon – 5 pm this Saturday.  If you miss them there, will the ladies will be back at the Baker’s Market at the Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre on April 20th, 27th and May 4th.

The Baker’s Market Returns To SE Vancouver February 16th

9 Feb

The Baker’s Market is back for the Spring!  The first of 7 dates get under way Sunday, February 16th.  This much loved and well attended event took a hiatus this past fall while organizer, Connie, flew off to France.  She spent six months doing some intensive baking, studying and tastings to earn a Diplome de Patisserie from Le Cordon Blue in Paris, France.  Congratulations Connie!

If you haven’t attended this Baker’s Market, it is a community based event that brings out baking enthusiasts, pastry students, mommy bakers as well as budding entrepreneurs.  Each week you will find different bakers on hand offering a wide array of baked goods. Some of the delicious things you will find include exquisite French macarons by J’adore les Macarons, delicious lemons squares from The Lemon Square and delectable baked breads from the The Bread Lab. Other vendors on hand include Andrea’s Oven, GI Jane with Healthy Treats for hungry foodies and the ladies from Petit Four Pastries plus of course many more.  Each week has different vendors, so the offerings will be a bit different each time, but the types of goodies you can expect to find include organic muffins, brownies, handmade chocolates, Belgian waffles, scones, preserves, breads, tarts, granola and much more. If you have something specific you’d like, I do recommend you arrive early.

The Baker’s Market will be held at Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre, 7646 Prince Albert Street (60th & Fraser).  Admission to the market is free, there is ample parking and my favourite part, lots of samples! So come out and support your local talented creative bakers.   If you this miss the kick off Sunday, February 16th, not to worry, there will be 6 more markets on February 23rd, March 2nd,  March 9th,  April 20th, April 27th and May 4th. The market runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each Sunday.
