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

Sara of Dream of Goodies delights with a variety of cupcake flavors, including: vanilla with chocolate avocado frosting, chocolate with peanut butter frosting, chocolate with chocolate frosting, and pumpkin spice. Also offered are carrot or cardamom mini cakes, vanilla or peanut butter whoopee pies, apple or lemon tarts, energy bars, and assorted cake bite flavors. For our pups, grain-free dog treats made with human-grade ingredients such as peanut butter, coconut, and sweet potato. All of Sara’s Goodies are Paleo friendly, gluten free, low glycemic, and non GMO.

We welcome a new vendor at the market this week. Ever wonder where those used coffee grounds from your favorite coffee shop end up? Not the landfill, thanks to the creative ingenuity of the folks at Team Coffeffe, we have beautifully crafted exfoliating soaps!

We send healing thoughts to Ana of Sweet Twist who is ill today and look forward to seeing her back next week.

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.
