Vendor Profile: Rhine River Bakery
Got a sweet tooth? Head on over to the Rhine River Bakery booth on Friday at the Hartland Farmer's Market to get your fix. Angelika Stedman of Hartland, VT makes delicious German pastries and breads from scratch using many local ingredients. Angelika hails from Germany and named her bakery after the German river that she swam in as a small girl.
Her loyal customers return each week for her little cinnamon rolls, drizzled with white icing. Her beautiful fruit tarts sell out quickly so come early if you have your heart set on one. She bakes streusel and homemade breads, too, including her famous bacon cheddar bread, which is sourdough based. Iced coffee and lemonade are available at the Rhine River Bakery booth to quench your thirst on these hot summer days.
Every once in awhile, you might just catch Angelika performing with the musical guests at the market (see below). Last week, she surprised everyone by joining Paul Brotchie in a wonderful rendition of the House of the Rising Sun!
If you pay a visit to the Rhine River Bakery booth, you are guaranteed a delicious baked good served with a smile. Stop by and see what Angelika has baked from scratch this week and feel free to inquire about special orders, including gluten-free items.
