CITIZENS OF HAPPY BAKER NATION, MAY WE PLEASE SEE YOUR PASSPORTS?

 In our quest to take over all of Bakerdom, The Happy Baker is expanding its territory!  We've  acquired several new Markets in the Tampa Bay Area, including some retail space in a local frozen yogurt shop.

We also purchased a small island.  OK, not exactly.  But we did purchase a cute little mobile cart, which is an island unto itself.  We like to call it The Happy Baker Mobile!  Yes, it's orange, and yes, it'll make you Happy.  Just look at the photo below.

So Citizens, book your tickets (a.k.a. your BakerBuck™ which you can download here on our Coupons page), for a trip to one of our lovely Market destinations!  Thank you for traveling with The Happy Baker.  You are now free to move about our Markets:

LOOK OUT DOWNTOWN TAMPA, HERE COMES THE HAPPY BAKER MOBILE!

 

 The City of Tampa recently approved us as one of its daily vendors on the Franklin St. Mall.  We celebrated our first day, December 10th, with free coffee for everyone!

Bordering Lykes Gaslight park, on the corner of Fanklin & Kennedy, The Happy Baker Mobile opens at 7:00 am for breakfast and lowers its striped canopy roof after the last of the lunchtime crowd at around 2:00 p.m.

If you work downtown or just in for the day, please stop by for breakfast or lunch and try one of our Morning Muffins or a Lunchtime Loaf!  Our muffins are just as moist and delicious as our loaves and come in most of the flavors you've come to enjoy.  

 We offer a (small, 12-oz.) Coffee & Muffin Combo for $3 and a (large, 20-oz.) Combo for $3.50.  Our Muffins are $2 each and Mini Loaves and Specialty Breads are $5 and $6 respectively.  Please tell all your friends and colleagues, and we'll see you on the Mall!  

 

Guess what's been JUMPIN' out of  the Happy Baker oven lately??!!

Jumpin' Jack Banana Bread, that's what!  Bourbon meets Banana Bread in our newest flavor! 

This smooth, rich bread would make even the martini-drinking James Bond jealous.  Baked, not stirred, it's our now famous Go Bananas! Banana Bread with --- you guessed it --- a Jack Daniels double glaze GENEROUSLY applied as soon as it comes out of the oven.  Jack winds his way through every crevice, infusing the first in our Grown-up Line of sweet breads with the unmistakable flavor of Tennessee Whiskey.

The Jumpin' Jacks have been pre-selling while they're still baking, so come early --- and buy often!

Wishing you a Blessed and Joyful Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!

                                                    ***REMINDER***

Duckweed Urban Market is Now Carrying Our Banana Bread!!!

We just made our first delivery to this charming little specialty market in downtown Tampa.  Check your personal Banana Bread GPS to find out where it is.We'd hoped that our bread would fly right off Duckweed's shelves, but this was unexpected.  We hadn't even gotten them on the shelf when someone bought one right out of our delivery basket!  And in case you're wondering, it was Chocolate Chuckle Chip.

THE BakerBucK™ IS BACK!

Great weather brought out lots of people, including pirates. We had a great time being entertained by our pirate friend. We just did not know how he did his whole coin trick.

 

TAMPA FAMILY WINS BREAD-NAMING CONTEST!!!

Congratulations to Judy Weir, mother of two, for renaming our delicious new flavor, Crazy for Cranberry.  Judy, a kindergarten teacher, came up with the perfect name in a flash.  Sticking closely to our contest rules (the name, like our others, must include a synonym for happy, happiness, smiling, etc. and/or an alliteration --- repetition of a particular sound in the first syllables of a series of words --- as in Classic Coconut, Chocolate Chuckle Chip, Go Bananas!, Blueberry Bliss, or Pilgrim Pumpkin), Judy decided right off the bat that the name had to be easy to say and leave no doubt about the ingredients.  "It couldn't be Crazy Cranberry," she said, "because then  everyone would be wondering what else was in it!

Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases, the Happiest of Hannukahs, and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to our wonderful customers and friends!!! As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, we'll be turning The Happy Baker ovens off until the New Year. We'll fire them back up Saturday, January 3, 2015 at the Ybor City Saturday Market, and the Fresh Market at Wiregrass!

Thank you so much for your loyalty, your enthusiastic support, and your unwavering commitment to "Spread the Bread"! Another great year and we literally couldn't have done it without you!!! A thousand Banana Bread thank-yous!!!
