Farmer's Market Cupcakes Weekend Roundup

It’s Friday, so that means Farmer's Market info! If you're in the Leesburg area, be sure to drop by the Leesburg Farmer's Market this Saturday to pick up a couple of the goodies from Lola Cookies & Treats!
I mentioned last week that Lola doesn't normally have her cupcakes at the Farmer's Market (summer heat and frosting usually are not a good combination) but since it's not quite summer, this week they'll have their Chocolate with Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes and Coconut Cupcakes. In Lola’s bakery this week, they’re whipping up Carrot Cake, Milk Chocolate, Coconut, Chocolate with Vanilla Buttercream, Red Velvet & Madagascar Vanilla cupcakes.
Other treats they'll be bringing to tomorrow’s Farmer’s Market include Cherry-Chocolate Scones, Cranberry Buttermilk Scones, Apricot with White Chocolate & Walnut Scones, and Cheddar Chive Scones, as well as Almond Bread and Honey Wheat Bread.
The Leesburg Farmers Market takes place from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday in the parking lot at Virginia Village Shopping Center (which is at King Street and Catoctin Circle). Go early for the best selection!
If you're in the Alexandria, VA area, drop by the Alexandria Farmer's Market to scoop up some of Chateau Gateau's cupcakes. The Alexandria Farmer's Market Hours are 5:30am-11:00am every Saturday.
The Old Town Alexandria Farmers' Market is located in the Market Square at 301 King Street. The best parking is in the underground lot off Fairfax Street, directly under Market Square.

I was at the Old Town Farmer's Market this past Saturday between 6:30 and 7:15 AM and no Chateau Gateau. I'm wondering if she sets up later or doesn't come on a potentially rainy day. Oh well, I got some scones and other goodies while I was there from other vendors. Better luck next time.
