Come early!  We often sell out by noon…
Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery is excited to announce that we will be bringing two BRAND-NEW breads to Sweetwater on Saturday 11/27!  Come out and have a taste or six—samples are FREE!
Irish Cheddar Peppercorn –Muskegon’s own Cheese Lady turned us on to this amazing Irish Cheddar—after our first taste we knew we had to get it into some of our bread…We’ve married this smooth Irish Cheddar to tongue-tingling organic black pepper.  Needless to say, it’s a very happy marriage!  $8.00 a loaf.
Cranberry Orange Almond—A true festival of flavors with sweetened cranberries, organic orange zest, and toasted almonds.  A lovely bread for a special breakfast, or tea time, or seasonal celebrations…$8.75 a round.

Bee & Botanicals of Spring Lake
In Honor of Green Saturday
– Do something good for you and your family burn beeswax candles!

Why burn beeswax?
Beeswax is an all natural and renewable resource. Many candles are petroleum based paraffin, often bleached and they often contain artificial fragrances. Beeswax has a natural warm honey scent and ours, if they are scented (check out our frosted votives and travel tins), uses only the finest essential oil for scent.  Beeswax is also creates negative ions when burned which help clean the air.  The candles burn clean without soot. Due to the high melting temperature, your candle will give you many hours of sweetness and the brightest of candle light!
Hasselman’s Honey
Honey Sticks this week!
Honey comes in many sizes and pretty gift bottles to choose from. Great for holiday cooking or a warm cup of tea and toast.  Locally made by bee’s in Fremont, Michigan. Make it a gift bag and add a beeswax candle!
Other items include organic bath soaps, Starry Night Dream Pillow Sachets-made with a blend of organic herbs to aid in relaxation and add a soothing aroma to your pillow or bed side table.  Also organic lavender sachets.
Organic Lavender dryer bags, especially nice with bed linens and towels (2 pack or 5 pack).
Cards, gift tags, gift bags & special wrapped boxes for organic soaps in a variety of designs.

Look forward to seeing you at the market!
