This Week: Homemade by Harris
This is the owner of Homemade by Harris – Justina!
How did your business start?
Homemade By Harris launched September 2021. I had been working in the baking industry for years but found I really loved decorating cookies and wanted to focus more on that. It had always been a dream of mine to have my own bakery and with a lot of encouragement from my family and friends I decided it was finally time to go for those dreams!
What is your favourite product that you sell and why?
I love making my decorated sugar cookies because I can turn one recipe into so many different things. Every order is unique and I love all the themes/ideas for cookie sets that my customers bring me. I offer 3 recipes: Classic, Vegan, or a Gluten Free and I’m hoping to add some different flavours to the menu soon!
What is your favourite part about selling at farmers markets?
My favourite thing about being at farmers markets is that I can try out new ideas and techniques for cookies that I may not have been able to do on a custom order yet. And of course meeting all the wonderful customers and other vendors. It’s been a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.
Thanks, Justina and team! We are so excited to have you with us this season!
