Sand Hill Berries

Sand Hill Berries, one of the vendors at the market, was my first stop. The berries they had on display vibrant, and looked wonderful. In addition to pints of fresh blackberries, there were black and red currants. Also on display were Sand Hill’s baked goods. Merle, the friendly worker urged me to try the currants, “They’re tangy, and become sweet when cooked.” Emmariah, another Sandhill Berries employee, began opening boxes of their baked goods, explaining to me how fresh all of the ingredients were that are used in their preparation. I had purchased pies from this booth before, and was very pleased with the product.

Dunkin Donuts

I frequent the Dunkin Donuts on Grant Street. We often have clients that want early-morning meetings at the club, and they always require fresh, delicious donuts and bagels. It’s always been a pleasure to walk into the Dunkin Donuts on Grant Street- the shop is clean, the staff is friendly, and there are plenty of donuts to choose from… until recently.

I love carrot cake. There are many delicious components to a fine carrot cake- fresh-shaved carrots (of course) spices, and tangy sour cream, cream cheese frosting! Fresh carrot cake is moist, refreshing, and satisfying.
