I have a booth this weekend at a fall craft/baker's/farmer's market. I'm selling crochet items but thought maybe I could add some baked goodies as well. Any ideas on some creative cute fall yummy goodies I could sell? I've thought of cupcakes or individual apple crisps cups.

I would check with local laws/rules about food at farmers markets. You probably have to get some sort of health dept permit. That aside, some really cute fall leaf sugar cookies would be fun. And you could have them all bagged up and packaged which might make it less "legal" hassle?

The rules are prett easy around here...basically nothing that needs refridgeration and should be labeled. So there goes my cheesecake pop and pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting idea. But I probably would have just wanted to eat them anyways;o) Love the leaf cookie idea! Thank you so much!

You could also do little mini pies. But anything apple and pumpkin are huge hits. I actually sell cupcakes at our farmer's market and found that the more gourmet type or ones that use fresh local grown produce sell better. But the pies are always a hit!! Good luck!

I thought this was a very cute idea. Doesn't look too time consuming either.

Thanks seedrv for the candy corn cupcake link. I've bookmarked that.

OP--here's a darling idea on an Oprah Winfrey site with cupcakes that look exactly like little pies. They look very detailed, but could actually be made fairly quickly. You could probably charge a premium price ($2.50-$3.00) for these "Bake Sale Pie Cupcakes".

If you can't find red and blue M&M's you could just pipe the "berries" with red and blue buttercream.

If you're going to make sugar cookies, besides leaves, you can also do pumpkins, ghosts, bats, and apples. Also, pumpkin spice cupcakes and apple spice cupcakes make me think of fall.
