Coonamessett Farm Artisans' Fair

Mesdames spent the holiday weekend at the Coonamessett Farm in Falmouth toting our newest, brightest summer flavors: Lime Ricky, Shirley Temple, Arnold Palmer, and Peach Melba.


The Coonamessett Farm Artisans' Fair was Mesdames second fair.  Our first step into the Artisans' world was at the Holiday Boutique at the Thayer Nursery in Milton, MA.  Considering this was only our second fair, I think we've done very well.  It's hard to predict what people will be drawn to in terms of product.  At the Thayer event, everyone wanted boxes of macarons; we went home with lots and lots of left over mac-pops.  At the Coonamessett Farm, we found ourselves taking boxes apart to make more mac-pops. 

Sunday morning, we broke out some of our most popular flavors for sampling.  Above, there are pieces of Mocha, Peach Melba, Lime Ricky and Arnold Palmer.  The Mocha samples went the fastest.  Without a doubt, Mocha is the local favorite.

We still have a lot of growing up to do still, but considering that I (Katy) have only been baking macarons for a year and a half now, and our company has only been a company since December, we think we're doing pretty well. 

A big MERCI! to all of our friends, family and fellow artisans who have supported and helped us so far.  We owe you a cookie!
