Market Day Canele - makers of the delectable Bordeaux confection know as canele, as well as delicious sweet and savory tarts, was featured in Main Line Dine this week!

Gil hails from Philadelphia, but his ingredient list for his baked goods reads like a who's who of local produce farms, grain mills and dairy farmers. We are thrilled to have him as part of our market!
