I have a confession to make. For any family members reading, you might want to stop now. 'Cause I just don't need the grief!
These cinnamon buns are so unbelievably fantastic, so incredibly good -- that I eat them. On Mondays, all I think about is the following Sunday, when I can buy myself another cinnamon bun and eat it. What's the problem with that? I'm allergic to cinnamon. Yup, these are so great, that they're worth the reaction.
Amy and I set ourselves up with a MarcoPolo tea from Balzac's and one of Alli's out of this world buns, and we just know that it's going to be a good day.
They are so gooey, you'd think there was more topping than bun. And the best part -- she has a small portable warmer, so they're served a just the perfect temperature!
Allison is the baker and seller of these fine treats. She also has a number of other baked goods for sale -- both savoury and sweet. She even makes a bread concoction with fiddleheads on it! Oh and be sure to try these crazy spicy potato thingies that she makes -- they're fantastic.
The Farmers Market at The Distillery has started again and runs Sundays through Thanksgiving Sunday October 12. We are all very excited and eagerly anticipating the 5th season.
REGULAR LOCATION: The farmers' market is located at the Distillery Historic District 55 Mill Street in Toronto on Trinity Square by Balzac's Coffee.
ALTERNATE LOCATION DURING SPECIAL EVENTS: you will find the farmers' market on Market Lane, located in the east end of the District, near Soul Pepper Theatre.
