Prowling for the BEST food value @ Bellingham Farmer’s Market

Not only is she the best cook in Bellingham, but she also offers the best value: Danielle. She runs the show at The Bowl ‘n Roll booth at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market. Today’s feature was delectable. And vegan! I had the jerked large mushroom & yam kabobs with pasta salad and green salad. It took only 1 bite to know her dishes stand out. If you haven’t tried her meals yet, I truly urge you to. They are delicious. And as I’ve stated before: The Bowl ‘n Roll is a winner.

What is a meal without its treat, I ask you? To choose is almost impossible, so I go on the prowl. Opposite The Bowl ‘n Roll is Liz Kovacs’ Icing On the Cake cupcakes. She had a new item out – frosting shots. Frosting shots? Okay…I’ll get each of my kids one of those and then we’ll trot over to sample some java. Just watch them slingshot all over town after that! I was only kidding — I won’t feed them pure sugar or caffeine. I’m pretty sure the counter girl just wished I would go away; you could see the smile drain from her face…oh well.

I looked at Mount Bakery, Breadfarm, Mallard’s, Mykes Shaved Ice, Ralf’s Bavarian, Rocket Donuts, Kettle Korn. As I’m always on the lookout for vegan and/or gluten free options it takes some time, some questions, some decisions. Today I chose Rocket Donuts and threw it all to the wind. They were serving these beautiful little donut holes and not just one flavor, but 12. Yes, TWELVE different flavors of donut holes. One of each please, especially since they were 3 for $1. Everyone in the family would find favorites! 12 = apple fritter, blueberry, chocolate, chocolate striped, powdered, powder jelly, glazed, coconut, almond, walnut, chocolate w/creme, sugared w/jelly (YES, I remember them all)…and they had 2 vegan muffin options: big berry and pumpkin. We had big smiles and lots of giggles and sharing. Very important to share – we slice donuts in half to settle disputes.


  1. If you’re looking for vegan, beware those donut holes. I hear they fry them in some sort of lard, which is not veg. The normal donuts from Rocket are not, only the holes. Depressing, I know. The raspberry ones are the best, easily.
