Day of the Book




Weekend Weather Woes

A change of plan for this weekend (February 13-14): the weather is playing havoc with us. 45 mph gusts forecast for Saturday which will turn our canopy into a sail. Been there before and it’s miserable. We’ve decided not to trade on Saturday at the Kensington Farmer’s Market, but instead to brave the cold on Sunday morning at Olney instead. Apologies for changes, but one way or another, if you want pies or sausage rolls this weekend, including our yummy Valentine’s Pie, you can get them!

Valentine’s Day Pie

♥ Try our delicious Valentine’s Day Pie to warm your heart. Beef steak, seasoned with Hungarian Smoked Paprika, olives, almonds, dark chocolate and a splash of Rioja wine. All the ingredients to make your heart flutter.
Come get one for yourself and your Valentine.♥

Reopening After The Storm!

The Southern Cross Bakery kitchen elves have thawed out from Snowmageddon 2.0 and will be baking again for both the Kensington Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning, Jan 30 (cnr Howard and Montgomery Aves, Kensington, MD), and the Olney Farmer’s Market on Sunday morning, Jan 31 (2801 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd, at the corner of Prince Phillip Dr & Rte 108, Olney, MD). Come get your Australia-NZ style pies and sausage rolls.gnome thaw

Olney Holiday Market Fun

We’re making new local friends at the Olney Farmer’s Market, and it’s great to see return customers after just a few weeks. On Sunday December 6 we took part in the Holiday market at Olney, with lots of great food, crafts and stuff for kids to do. We also introduced our Rudolph (venison) Pie for the holiday season.


Here’s a video of our day, including what it takes to get a market stand together. We’ll be at Olney every Sunday morning all through the winter. Come support your local market.
