Who we are and how to find us:
Sweet Jayne’s is a certified Colorado Cottage Food Act operation located just south of Denver proper, in Englewood, CO. I proudly bake from my home kitchen and sell at the South Pearl Street Farmers’ Market in Denver most Sundays, May-November. You’ll find Sweet Jayne’s schedule here.
In addition, I take special orders when possible and offer holiday pies, cakes and cookies available for pickup directly from my home. Email Sweet Jayne’s with special orders for pickup outside of scheduled market days. I will accommodate as possible. Join my email list (See Bottom of the Page) to stay in the know about market menus, special offerings and priority ordering for the holidays.
We work daily to minimize our footprint by composting, recycling and buying 100% recycled paper take out boxes and bags when possible. In addition, we find ways to minimize the use of plastic where we can, use glass pie pans and consolidate around-town errands in “Jayne Honda.” The South Pearl St. Farmers’ Market is in its first season of becoming a Zero Waste Event. Our next effort will be using compostable food containers to limit landfill waste.
We buy only fresh, seasonal fruit from local farmers and Western Slope growers. We store as much fall fruit as possible to guarantee our holiday pies are made from the best locally grown fruit. We collect, can and freeze berries all summer to offer a little taste of summer later in the year.
Friends of Sweet Jayne’s:
We are proud to work with the following farmers and vendors to make the best quality and most delicious treats for you, your family and friends:
Ela Family Farm: It has been our great pleasure for the last 5 years to work closely with Steve Ela and Jeni Nagle at Ela Family Farms to use the very best organic Colorado fruit in our pies, galettes and cakes. Steve and his crew grow rhubarb, cherries, peaches, plums, apples and pears and we love it all! A pie is only as good as the fruit inside and Ela’s fruit is simply the best. They can be found at several Front Range Farmers’ Markets.
Kiowa Valley Organics: Kiowa grows a variety of fruits and vegetables. In the spring, Krista brings dainty sweet strawberries to the Pearl Street Market, and their gorgeous raspberries come on in late summer. In the fall we stock up on their Georgia Candy Roaster squash – we roast and freeze it for our delicious pumpkin bread all year round. Kiowa can be found at a few local markets in the Spring with their amazing asparagus, berries and jams.
Brown Dog Farm: Our lovely market neighbors Bessie and Tim grow a variety of organic produce. They are well known for their tasty greens, beets and heirloom tomatoes. We use their delicious carrots and zucchini for our breads.
Village Farm Colorado: I left Susan a note in the Spring of 2018, inquiring about her incredible rhubarb patch. She’s been my best kept secret ever since and we decided it was time for me to share. It’s hard to not keep the most perfect berries a stone’s throw from my house a secret. And she grows flowers, too!
Forte Farm: We are thankful for Forte’s sour cherries (already pitted!), apricots, plums and early season peaches. They are a new addition to the South Pearl Street Farmer’s Market this summer.
The Savory Spice Shop: Quality spices make all the difference in baked goods and that is why we buy our spices from The Savory Spice Shop on Platte St. in downtown Denver. Their spices are freshly ground, they know their stuff, have great variety and excellent service.
Tonalis Meats: A new vendor for us and we are super appreciative for their willingness to work with smaller businesses like ours. We buy Niman Ranch eggs and Central Milling Organic Flour from this locally owned family business right here in Denver.
Bob’s Red Mill: This year we started ordering directly from Bob’s Red Mill, a employee-owned company. Ordering in bulk helps reduce plastic packaging (and our costs!) We buy organic oats, coconut flakes, gluten-free flours and thickeners from BRM and appreciate their great quality and excellent service.
