GOURMET SHOP

The gourmet shop is GROWING! This year we will be located in the YOUNG ADULT AREA. This means that there will be more space to display our wares, and also some refrigeration will be available.

We will be selling all sorts of delicious pies, cakes, breads, cookies, seasonal nuts, candies, jams, jellies and your other wonderful creations. We will package and wrap your items- but please label. We also suggest adding your name to the label- be proud that it is "your name's" pie, fudge, candy, etc. Many of the shoppers ask for foods made by specific cooks- your reputation carries from year to year. So get out those special recipes and think Holiday Festival. We will be accepting foods on Thursday evening November 6, all day Friday November 7 and early morning Saturday November 8. Questions??
