First, as you may have heard, we’re fresh from another successful East Bay Vegan Bakesale last weekend, where we were able to raise close to $1100 for Home at Last and Lyon-Martin Health Services! Thank you again to all who participated! We had a truly great collection of volunteers and donors this time round, and the bakesale was a blast.
But despite this awesome success, we’ve got no time to rest on our laurels. This weekend has a bunch more in store for us as makers and you all as eaters of sweet treats! Let’s go in chronological order because, why not.
First, Fat Bottom Bakery will be tabling at our first farmer’s market starting tomorrow, and continuing every Friday for the next several months! We’re participating in Urban Classic Events’ Farm Fresh Friday program, bringing local, sustainable fruits, vegetables and other foods to a variety of school campuses around the Bay Area!
You’ll find us at Escuela Bilingue Internacional School, 410 Alcatraz Avenue in Oakland, from 2:30 to 6:30pm (that’s right, it’s on the campus of a bilingual school– pretty cool!). There will also be a bunch of other great vendors selling fresh produce, specialty items and artisan goods, so it’s pretty much going to be awesome. Please come out and support us and this great new farmer’s market series– we look forward to seeing you there!
(In case you’re wondering, this does mean that unfortunately we’ll be skipping out on Oakland’s Art Murmur this month. But! We plan on starting back up the first Friday in April, so you’ll have two places to find us that day!)
Next we have two events on Sunday! As you already know, we are preparing to kick ass at the SF Cupcake Challenge at the Mezzanine in San Francisco, from 1pm on.
Meanwhile across town in front of Mission Bicycle Company, some friends of ours will be holding the Cupcakes for Choice Bakesale to raise awareness about and funds for Planned Parenthood and the much needed services they provide! We’re donating some treats, as are tons of other wonderful bakers, and I believe they’re still looking for even more! If you’re interested in baking or helping out, please email Robin at rdoolin09 at gmail dot com.
And! In other, non-weekend-specific news, we’re excited to have our treats sold at New People Cafe in San Francisco’s Japantown starting this week! If you’re around, stop by and pick up a cupcake or cookie and let the lovely folks at New People that you’re happy they now have even more vegan treats!
Alright, do I have it all covered? Yes, I think that’s it for now. We hope you can come out to one or all of this weekend’s fantastic events– see you around!
