Weeking Outings: The Farmer’s Market

One of my favourite weekend activities is to visit the farmers market with my cousin. Two weeks ago, I visited the Kitsilano farmer’s market, which is temporarily being held at the location where Nat Bailey’s farmer market is held. Since I was dog sitting that week, I decided to bring along Yuki. Continue reading to the end to see what I bought!

French Made Baking’s Canelé

Other than their macaron’s, my favourite item from French Made Baking is their canelé. According to their website, a canelé is   flavored with rum and vanilla, the batter is baked in a small striated cylinder mould that gives the canelé its specific shape and makes for a tender custard-like heart underneath a thick caramelized crust. I just love the tender interior and crispy, carmalized exterior. It has been some time since I’ve sunken my teeth into this delicious dessert, I’m salivating right now while I write this post. I know canelé’s are also available at Thierry, but I prefer French Made Baking’s canelé more.

I went to Fujiya to get some lunch today:

Decided to try the Japanese curry which consists of sweet Japanese curry, potatoes, carrots and chunks of beef. Not bad for $4.95!

These cream caramel puddings are my favourite! I saw that they had a new flavour, Royal Milk Tea flavour so I got that along with a Matcha flavour.

Saturday after a studying, I was craving macarons…
