Saturday was the Blackmarket Bakery open house. From 2 to 5pm they passed out free samples of their mini pumpkin whoopie pies, pumpkin bread, gingerbread cookies, coffee marshmallows, brittle, and more, while Piaggio on Wheels, Dogzilla, and The Burnt Truck took care of the savory stuff. I ended up buying some yummy pumpkin marshmallows and one of their Marché Noir cabernet brownies.
This gal called out raffle prizes in this awesome homemade cake costume! This may be better than my bacon costume.
Samples of their focaccia, made with wine flour, were topped with caramelized onions and feta.
Dogzilla and The Burnt Truck looked pretty awesome, but unfortunately were cash only. Apparently, The Burnt Truck has sliders that are fried chicken on biscuits with gravy!

In addition to treats, you can also buy baking supplies, a very few specialty food items (I saw lavender and vanilla bean simple syrups, and pear fig jam), and cute food-related plush.
