Hi all, hope you're well!
There's work being done in the square in Newtown where the markets are usually held so the markets aren't running and probably won't be back until the end of the year/early next year.
So unfortunately our June bake sale was our last for 2011. To make up for this, we've decided to organise a picnic pot luck for our friends and supporters:
Date: Saturday, September 24, 2011
Where: Camperdown Memorial Rest Park (just down the road from the markets)
Bring: a vegan dish to share and any picnic gear you have (blanket, plates, containers etc)
We hope you can join us :)

What a gorgeous sunny winter day we had on Saturday! Big thanks to everyone who contributed by baking or buying — we raised $809.90 in total! After Christchurch suffered more quakes on the 13th (on top of the numerous aftershocks since February), we decided our coins would go to Animal Aid: Christchurch Earthquake Relief. That makes $675 for NSW Animal Rescue, and with the exchange rate, $174 for Christchurch (SAFE is redistributing collected funds to various groups in the Christchurch/Canterbury area).
We had one of our prettiest tables ever, with lots of cupcakes in Black Forest, tiramisu, peanut butter chocolate, lemon, carrot cake, banana split, linzer torte, lemon blueberry and chocolate, oatmeal cranberry cookies, panforte, little fruit tarts, three kinds of focaccia, potato-topped mushroom lentil pies, zucchini muffins, little owl-shaped gingerbreads, peanut butter blondies and even a bit more. You can get the full picture at our Flickr group. See you again a bit later in the year!

Hello again! The Sydney Vegan Bake Sale will be participating in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale which takes place this year, April 23 - May 1. This is the third year that we've held a bake sale for the WVBS and it's always a fun time of year because it's how we started out and it's great to know that hundreds of vegan bake sales are taking place around the world!
Our bake sale will be on Saturday, April 30 at the Newtown Square Markets, 8am - 2pm. All proceeds will be donated to Brightside Farm Sanctuary in Tasmania!
I hope to see you all there!

Thank you so much to everyone that supported the bake sale, we raised $869.40 for the Queensland Disaster Appeal! And we sold out despite it raining on and off all morning.
A huge thank you goes to Rubyfruit, a bakery in the Blue Mountains, they donated some of their gorgeous cupcakes and their very popular cheezecakes!
We'll see you again in April!

November is such an unlucky month for our bake sale. Last year it was a bazillion degrees and all of our cupcakes turned into cupcake soup. Today it was fah-reezing and it rained, a lot.
We set up first thing but by 7am it was raining lightly on and off. We had a few customers from 8am but by then it was pouring and we were all soaked.
We packed up by 9am and some of the baked goods went to Naked Espresso as a few of the staff baked for us so we returned their goods. I've been told customers were purchasing them so I should have an updated total later this afternoon. [Edit: We raised $361!]
The rest of the baked goods will be donated to the Vegan Society's cake & tea stall at the Cruelty Free Festival, so get down there tomorrow to snap up some of your favourites!
Thanks to Bel and M.L for helping with the organisation and to Ingrid who baked and stood in the rain with us. And a huge thanks to Leigh for selling baked goods for us at Naked Espresso! Also thanks to everyone who baked for us and who dropped by to make a purchase even though it was raining!
Our proceeds will be going to Charlie's Angels Horse Rescue. If you missed out today but would like to contribute, you can make a donation directly to them.
P.S Here are a few photos of some of the new baked goods we had today:
- We're a group of Sydney vegans who hold bake sales to raise money for animal-related charities. We started by participating in the first Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale and then we realised what a great opportunity it is and have decided to continue our bake sales on a regular basis. Our stall is located at the Newtown Square Markets on King St Newtown, across the road from the train station, outside the Community Centre.
