You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child

We hope everyone has stayed warm and cozy during the past week of Arctic Cold and look forward to seeing you at the market this week.

A brief snow storm gives way to sunny skies and the Old Town North Community Market is open. Join us at Alexandria’s favorite dog friendly market for delicious soup, chocolate truffles, paleo-friendly goodies, and more!

Sara of Dream of Goodies returns to us with rum and cardamom petite cakes, vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting, and a few whoopie pies. All of Sara’s baked goods are paleo-friendly, gluten free, low glycemic, non-GMO and deliciously decadent.

Ana of Sweet Twist delights with Ecuadorian style potato soup, delicately seasoned and made with three types of potatoes, freshly made Empanadas and hand crafted truffles for our chocolate lovers.

Sanjay of Dire Necessities continues to delight the senses with a wide selection of cozy Yak wool shawls, silk and cotton scarves imported from artisans in villages in India, Tibet, and Nepal.

The Old Town North Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market is sponsored by The Old Town North Community Partnership with support from the City of Alexandria, MRE Properties, River’s Edge Yoga, Yogis For Positive Change and the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership.

See you at the market! Rain or Shine, Year Round!

Dream of Goodies

Dream of Goodies is not your normal gluten free bakery. We make delicious yet healthy treats for all to enjoy that are low glycemic, by pairing healthy fats with organic low glycemic sweeteners. Our goodies never contain GMOs, soy, dairy, chemicals, dyes, or artificial anything. We strive to use only the best ingredients that are sustainably sourced, habitat friendly, and organic whenever possible. Our eggs and butter are locally sourced. The hens are feed organic non-GMO feed and are humanely raised. Our butter is organic and comes from pasture raised, grass-fed cows that aren't treated with rBST. We have a wide variety of treats that range from nut free to vegan. You won’t believe gluten free and healthy could taste this good. We are woman-owned, eco-conscience, and health oriented. Our packaging contains no plastic and is reusable/recyclable, and/or biodegradable.
