    Bake Sale at the St. James Christmas Market

Please join us for our 2nd Annual Holiday Bake Sale at the St. James Christmas Market on Saturday, November 30th from 9am - 2pm. There will be a delicious selection of homemade goods for purchase.  All proceeds will go to St. James Catholic School.  

 

Calling All Bakers!

Please contribute your favourite baked creations to make our Bake Sale a success!  Please send an email to stjameschristmasmarket@gmail.com with the subject: “Bake Sale” and let us know that you are able to contribute. 


From our experience with last year’s bake sale, we would like to offer the following suggestions:

  1. Please have your baked goods packaged and ready for sale. 

  2. Keep portion sizes smaller.  Smaller portions allow people to buy a variety of baked goods.

  3. Please identify your baked goods.  You can either label each package or include one display card for each batch.  For example: “Chocolate Chip Cookies” or “ Lemon Poppyseed Scones.” Please identify If your baked good contains nuts or peanuts.  If you are preparing a gluten-free item, please identify it as such. 


Bake Sale Volunteers Needed!

We will need volunteers to help with setup and pricing, selling baked goods, and clean up and tear down.  If you are able to volunteer some time either on the evening of Friday, November 29th, or during the day on Saturday, November 30th, please email stjameschristmasmarket@gmail.com with the subject: “Bake Sale” and let us know when you are available.
