Cupcakes in the market

We are off to market again this week, with four new products to add to our range. We've had a great response so far to our three key products - chocolate, strawberry and vanilla cupcakes, but we decided we'd try a "flavour of the week" approach, and found that when ever we introduced something different, it sold out!

Last Friday we tried chocolate meringues - they were gone by 11.30am! Then last Saturday, we tried raspberry passionfruit cupcakes, and again, they completely sold out. Our conclusion: variety is the spice of life. So this week we are bringing the raspberry passionfruit cupcake and chocolate meringues, along with a date and walnut and a banana cupcake to market. We're excited because it means we now have eight products! Hopefully we now have something for everyone. Even gluten free folks!

If you're in the neighbourhood, do drop by and see us! We'll be at the Organic Food Market in Bondi Junction Mall, Sydney, Australia, from 8.30am to 5.00pm on Friday, August 8, and from 8.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday, August 9. Mention this Blog, and we'll give you a free mini cupcake!

Hi Petrina,

I've been reading your blog for a while now. I can't find your email anywhere here so I thought I'd post a comment here. I remember reading this post about you selling your cupcakes at Bondi Junction markets and thought this would be the best place to send you a message. I live in Bondi and would like to sell some sweet treats at the markets too and have a few questions I'm hoping you can help me with.

Please email me: anita@noredmeat.com

Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

Anita

Hi Anita, I just found your comment. I'm not sure how old it is. The Bondi Junction Organic Food Markets are closed now. Not sure if the council has replaced it with anything. I found it a very limited market - by that I mean there were only so many people coming to it with so much money to spend. Stallholders who regularly sold at other markets told me Bondi Junction wasn't lucrative and I can attest to that. It was, however, an extraordinary exercise in honing my craft. If you decide to go for market selling I wish you all the best! Petrina.
