What’s happening at Adaba Foods?

The Boulder Farmers’ Market opens soon!  I will be there on Saturdays until the Wednesday market opens, then I’ll be there on Wednesdays only for the rest of the season.  Wednesdays are from 4pm until 8pm.  Saturdays begin April 4th…

I sell baked goods made from whole grains like amaranth, teff, millet, quinoa, etc, which all happen to be gluten free.  My products don’t contain dairy and most are vegan.  All are organic and made with the highest quality ingredients.   I disclose every ingredient at the stand, though below I’ll just list the main ones and leave things like baking powder and baking soda out. 

In addition to the Farmers’ Market, I take direct/special orders and I also teach cooking and baking classes.  I’m hoping to write a cookbook using local, seasonal ingredients, as well.  A note on special orders, please give me as much information as possible about your food restrictions/preferences.  I will do custom orders to accomodate you if I can! 

NEW for this year: I have started to work with sprouted whole grain quickbreads and some yeasted breads.  I will always one or more products made from whole, soaked and/or sprouted grains, which will also be vegan.   In addition, I now soak the flours for my crackers and will do my best to soak the flours for quickbreads, as well.    

I rotate my menu based on what is in season; part of my purpose is to help people connect with their food and part of that is knowing what grows when and where (hopefully nearby).  In general, I sell seasonal sweet breads, cookies, and bars, as well as savory crackers.  I’ll also take special requests.  In addition, I sell mixes (when it’s cool enough to bake) so that people can make their own creations!

Here are some products that might show up on the menu:

Please note that the menu will vary from week to week.  If there is something you are counting on (a loaf or a particular product), please check with me early in the week to let me know!
