Hooray!! My Kids' Kitchen is now participating in the Champlain Islands winter markets. These markets will be held on the first Saturday of every month and will be located at the Congregational Church on South Street in South Hero, Vermont.
Today, Sophie was selling her famous sweet cream donuts, cheese boursin and maple oat bread. We hope to be selling jams, fruit butters (such as apple, peach and pear) along with decadent goodies, granola and our freshly made breads throughout the winter months.
In the spring look for our fresh maple syrup and in the early summer months for our honey. If you are interested in ordering any items throughout the year or have any questions, please contact us at

Winter Markets

Sunday, August 24, 2008


It has been a very wet summer however, our fruit trees and gardens are loving it. Currently, we are harvesting our tomatoes. Connor has been picking tomatoes to make his famous "Garden Fresh Salsa". Other new additions to our market stand are "Hot Dog Relish", "Honey-Dijon Mustard", "Fudgy Zucchini Muffins", and "Peach Butter". As soon as apple season is upon us, we will be selling "Apple Cider Muffins" and yummy "Apple Butter".

Selling Honey

We now have fresh local honey available. Since mid June we have started drawing from one of our local hives. Last year, we began a family apairary with hardy Russian bees designed to survive Vermont winters. They polenate our family orchard trees and garden, providing fresh honey at the same time.

Our Markets Have Begun

Connor, Sophie and Brogan have begun selling items at the markets. Most of the time you can find them by my side or selling rocks they have collected on the shores of Lake Champlain and have hand painted. Lately they have been picking rhubarb and strawberries from our garden. The ones they did not eat I make into delicious strawberry-rhubarb muffins to sell on market days. As soon as I collect enough strawberries, I will be able to make and sell strawberry and strawberry rhubarb jam. Look for these new products soon at our South Hero markets on Wednesdays 4:00-7:00 p.m or on Saturdays in Grand Isle from 10:00 - 2:00.

The Markets Have Begun

Connor, Sophie and Brogan wait for customers at our South Hero Market. Along with waiting for customers, the children have begun to pick some strawberries from our garden. Strawberries that were not consumed by them were made into scrumptious strawberry-rhubarb muffins to sell. When our strawberry plants really begin to produce more berries, look for strawberry and strawberry-rhubarb jam at our stand in South Hero on Wednesdays from 4:00 - 7:00 and Grand Isle on Saturdays from 10:00 - 2:00.

First Market Jitters

Sophie and Brogan were busy baking baguettes today. Our first day at the 2008 Island's Farmers Market begins. Baguettes are one of the items we sold. We harvested rhubarb from the garden and made scrumptious muffins. We also sold tasty strawberry scones, farmhouse granola and other delicious items. We are adding to our collection of breads by adding a honey wheat bread to be sold along side our baguettes and very popular maple oat bread.

Beginning of the markets

We finally received our bees to begin 2 new hives. Brogan is helping his dad check on the bees to make sure they are thriving.
