Homemade rolls, cakes and breads made fresh every Saturday

It’s 3 AM on Saturday morning, and Glenda Matthes is in the kitchen preparing the next batch of heavenly confections to sell at the Goshen Farmers Market. Later that morning, she will bring the fresh baked goodies to her booth at the market, and with a bright smile on her face, she sets out samples, and interacts with the customers that stop and swoon.Matthes prepares her menu week by week depending on customer favorites. Among the current front-runners are blueberry muffin bread, lemon zucchini bread, and chocolate peppermint cake. Her handmade cinnamon rolls and yeast rolls remain distinguished, making weekly appearances.When I asked Matthes what she liked about having a booth at this particular market, she responded, “I enjoy the people here.” Matthes likes building relationships with the families that come to the market, and enjoys catching up with regular customers as well.

To purchase Matthes’ delectable creations, or to request a custom order, visit her booth at the Goshen Farmers Market on Saturday morning!

Think Spring with Kathie’s Designs!

7b9d7047-cf90-49d4-a494-ba8cdc59b55fKathie Hillebrand is owner and maker at Kathie’s Designs. What began as a hobby a few years ago, has turned into a thriving business. Her booth at the Goshen Farmers Market stylishly displays a wide variety of jewelry pieces including necklaces, rings, bracelets, anklets, earrings, hair pieces, brooches, key chains and more!

Kathie makes many of the pieces by hand using glass, stone, and high-end acrylic beads.  Other pieces incorporate found objects or antiques that catch her eye. She often buys old jewelry and takes it apart to create something new. She looks for accessories that are unique and different, while staying within fashionable trends.

“I’m always trying something different,” Kathie said. She enjoys experimenting, intermixing materials and colors to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Each week, Kathie adds something new, whether to rearrange her booth or feature holiday specials. This month she is bringing in handmade jewelry for her spring and summer line.

Part of her work includes altering and fixing jewelry. “I learn new techniques from doing jewelry repairs and seeing how others make,” she said.

Kathie also takes custom orders and can design from a photo of your favorite look. With wedding and prom season approaching, Kathie is prepared to help create unique pieces for your special day.

Stop by Kathie’s Designs this Saturday at the Goshen Farmers Market.
