Farmer’s Market Prep In 5 Easy Steps

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 19, 2010

I realized that preparing for a Farmer’s market, is a bit like preparing for a race

1) Lay out everything the night before!

2) Get about 4 hours of sleep.

3) Make a filling breakfast


Strawberry Carob Vegan Overnight Oats


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp carob powder (gives it the sweet taste)
  • 1 diced banana
  • 5-6 small strawberries, chopped


Directions: Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and then add wet and whisk. Place in fridge overnight. Serve with more strawberries.

Diced banana….


Chop, chop!

After whisking everything like a crazy woman.


More strawberries because I kept eating the VOO. :biggrin:


Then into the fridge overnight or in the fridge for about 45-60 mins. You choose! Note- you do not heat the VOO in the morning.

5am on a Saturday doesn’t get any better than this…


I couldn’t get over how HOT it is outside today- even super early this morning. It is supposed to hit 30C today so hopefully we don’t melt at the market!

I had a layer of strawberries on the bottom!


I am loving how cute the CSA strawberries are! SO much flavour too.




This recipe was one of my favourite VOO concoctions by far! So amazing. I love carob powder + strawberries together.

4) Consume a ton of fluids


I hope there are bathrooms at the market… :ermm:

5) Rush out the door!

anne June 19, 2010 at 7:15 am

I realise I don’t comment here often but had to say I hope you have a grand ol’ time at the market! Really makes me wish I lived nearby. Hope your goods are a success :-)


Fit Chick in the City June 19, 2010 at 7:33 am

Good luck today! I’m sure you’ll have a successful day at the market.


Chelsey June 19, 2010 at 7:49 am

Good luck today!!! I know you’ll do great. I have a family brunch tomorrow and I am going to be attempting a vegan breakfast casserole sometime today – hopefully it turns out good. Be on the lookout! (even though I don’t think I could ever eat a breakfast casserole for breakfast. I am in love with my traditional breakfast too much)



Freya @ Brit Chick Runs June 19, 2010 at 7:56 am

Good luck at the market!


Helen June 19, 2010 at 7:57 am

Good Luck today I hope it goes well and you don’t melt!!!!


Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 19, 2010 at 8:10 am

Good luck and have fun!!! They’re gonna sell like hot cakes ;)


wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas June 19, 2010 at 8:15 am

I SO want to try some of your goodies!

I’m such a sweet-aholic. I spent 15 years working in bakeries as a cake decorator, and before that it was 6 years in a Dairy Queen!

Hey, maybe you can make the cake and I can make the flowers to put on top!


Cassie @ Tasteful Tales June 19, 2010 at 8:16 am

Good Luck Today!!!!!


Lindsay June 19, 2010 at 8:37 am

Good luck today! Two things- First- I received my Glo bar order in the mail this week. They are very good, but I especially love how I feel after I eat one… full, satisfied, and I know I put only great ingredients into my body. Number 2- I just made your VOO with the banana soft serve and layered it. It was very good. I need to experiment to add something more (like fruit). Thanks for the idea!


Meredith June 19, 2010 at 9:05 am

I’m sure you’ll love it Angela! My grandparents sold baking at the Farmer’s Market for years and I have many fond memories of playing there as a child:)


Ashley June 19, 2010 at 9:10 am

Oooooh, LOVE the last shot of the VOO!! Gorgeous…good luck!

Can’t wait to read about it :-)

Rachel Randolph June 19, 2010 at 12:19 pm

I said a little prayer for you this morning. I hope you are the hit of the Farmer’s Market. Oh, and I had a dream about cacao nibs last night. That’s it, I’m buying some asap. If they are popping up in my dreams, they must be good.


Allison @ Food For Healing June 19, 2010 at 12:43 pm

so exciting, you will have a blast! and meet so many people


Jamila June 19, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Your breakfast looks delicious! I love your teacup. Where did you get it from?


Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) June 19, 2010 at 2:05 pm

Good luck today!!!! :)


Carly @ Happy Healthy Foodie June 19, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Good luck Ange, you will do great! Have an awesome day :)


Jess @ MTL Veggie June 19, 2010 at 4:24 pm

Your ability to constantly create delicious and unique breakfasts never ceases to amaze me (and cause instant hunger). Hope you had a successful day at the market :)


Kirsten June 19, 2010 at 8:13 pm

Hope it went well today!!


Morgan @ Life After Bagels June 19, 2010 at 10:41 pm

whoa total success . . . hooray . . . I wish I could get to Oakville to buy a million bars but alas I do not have a car!


Courtney Earle June 20, 2010 at 6:11 am

Hi Angela! It was so nice to meet you yesterday afternoon. I don’t know if you remember me – my mom and I sampled/bought your Liberate Glo Bar. You told me about your blog and here I am checking it out! Looks like I’ll have to become an avid reader.. maybe create one of my own? Either way, you were great. Do you live in the area? It looks like you’re a runner – I am too. We should go for a run! I get my runs in at 4:30am before work!


Triathlon aka Grace June 20, 2010 at 9:46 am

Yummmm, gotta try this version of VOO! Love strawberries and bananas combined! Woohoo, market time!


Angela August 9, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Hi Angela,

I am very curious about your Vegan Overnight Oats and want to try them, however, I can’t stand banana. Do you have any suggestions for an alternate to replace banana?


BangkokBakingBonanza March 29, 2013 at 7:33 am

Looks great, definitely going to try! Perfect for weather over here in Thailand: 45C! I envy you… 30C is considered “cold” over here. ;)
