What a year!

Well I’ll I can’t believe it’s been this long since I wrote a blog post. To say it’s been busy would be an understatement.

On February 13, 2019 Melly Rolls turned one! I can’t believe how much we accomplished in one short year. It was a hugely successful market season. Between Warkworth and the twice weekly Campbellford farmers markets, it was certainly a busy time. We started catering in the late summer at the Branch Ranch in a Warkworth. That lead to some other regular catering jobs including the Rotary club and other organizations around Trent Hills.

Last year my goal was to get into Westben and the 2019 Incredible Doctors Cook Off. I’m happy to say that both of those dreams have come true! We’ll be supplying preorder picnic lunches for Westben as well as catering three of their larger events! We’re very excited to be joining the Doctors Cook Off and to help raise funds for the Campbellfoed Memorial Hospital. Add to this the acamobeklford Farmers Market and a few weddings and this summer is indeed shaping up to be a busy one!

I can’t wait! Thanks to all of my friends, family and loyal customers for helping make Melly Rlols so successful. Cheers to an even better time in 2019!

First Market Day

Last Saturday was my first time being a vendor at the Campbellford Farmers Market. Actually it was my first time having a booth at any market.

I arrived at 7 AM and got pretty far in setting up my tent by myself. I’m had only been set up once before and that was a trial run with four people. Luckily two other vendors helped me get the tent up the rest of the way. 935936B3-9FDD-4A27-BECD-EFAE04948E05

My good friends Bonnie and Gary arrived at 7:30 for the final touches before the market opened at 8.

We sold out of Spanakopitas pretty fast. I was unsure of how much to take of everything being that it was Ge first Market of the season and I’m an unknown entity. I’m happy to say that by noon I was sold out of almost everything!

it was a good test run to work out some kinks. I definitely need to have a better display thing going on. Oh and I need some weights for my tent. Those unexpected wind gusts are crazy!

Mother than that it was pretty much perfect. I’m really excited to see how his whole thing works out as the summer progresses.

I have to mention that all of the other vendors were so welcoming and friendly. I really wanted to stop by each booth and talk to everyone but there wasn’t time. Hopefully that won’t happen this weekend.
