Fuzz and I dropped our goodies off this morning at the Community Renaissance Market, an old Albertson’s grocery store that has been converted into a big space housing art, antiques, general merchandise and food vendors. There’s even a cute little restaurant/cafe called Native Nom Nom which occupies the space where the Albertson’s bakery used to be. Or was it the deli? I can’t remember because I only went to that place once or twice when it was an Albertson’s. Anyway, the place is really neat and if you live in Austin it’s worth checking out even if there’s not a bake sale going on.
Here are a few more pictures from the sale. I love seeing how people set up display tables and package their goodies.
