Big Sky Farmers' Market
It's been a little while since I last told you people about the progress of the bakery here in Belgrade/Bozeman/Big Sky, MT. In fact, in my last blog entry I was writing about the soon-to-start Big Sky Farmers' Market.
Last night was market #7 up in Big Sky, and this past Saturday was the #9 Bozeman market at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds in downtown Bozeman.
Both of them have gone well, with the Saturday market being more of a breakfast focus and the Wednesday market primarily being dinner/appetizer based.
I've developed a very loyal customer base in both places, and I decided to ask a couple of the customers to come inside the trailer while I was busily working to take some photos for my bakery Facebook page and this TFL blog entry. Paul and Kim Cameron of Bugaboo Cafe in Big Sky graciously obliged, and snapped bunches of pictures, some of which are below:
There I am pulling some scorching hot baguettes off their pans for customers waiting by the windows. Last night I sold more baguettes than I had ever sold in one market, despite the rain and lightning that slowed the last half of the market.
When I got home and checked out the photos Paul had taken, I saw this one and thought 'Now that's a cool one!'
The market has just started and the baguettes are flying out the window!
You can see the customer standing on a platform I had built that raises them up to the same level that I am standing at.
Don't forget the pastries...
Proof that Sinclair's Bakery is at the end of the rainbow!
I've got some more photos on the bakery Facebook page over here...and just so you know that I'm also taking the time to enjoy the people and scenery of the area, I've included a couple of photos below.
I'm the one with the cowboy hat :) This past Saturday after a busy market and a quick nap, some of my homies and I performed a few songs on ukulele for a local show. It was a lot of fun! Here's an article the local paper did about the ukulele group about a month ago!
And...last but definitely not least, here I am doing some flying just outside of Bozeman on a training hill. I'm in the process of getting my paragliding certification, and my next flight will be a BIG one from one of the mountains just outside of town. :)
