The Flour Shoppe was not able to return to the market this fall, but they will be able to host RFM Kids' Club tomorrow! Some very lucky children will be dipping The Flour Shoppe homemade marshmallows into melted chocolate and garnishing them. Dip. Sprinkle. Eat. Repeat. Feel free to harass The Flour Shoppe about the severe lack of lemon tarts this summer. :)
Happy Holidays and we'll see you in the spring!
