“This September will make two years we’ve been business,” Somoski said, “We’ve been doing Farmer’s Markets the whole time.” With the Farmer’s Market you have to spend money to make money. “There is a vendor fee but it is well worth it after a day of business,” Somoski said.

Any Sunday from now until Oct. 29 you can find Beagle’s Café & Bakery at the East Lansing Farmer’s Market. Located just north of Michigan States campus at 280 Valley Court the East Lansing Farmer’s Market is home to 32 vendors. Each vendor depends on the market different but according to co-owner, Nick Somoski, the support Beagle’s Café & Bakery receives is tremendous. “Farmers markets account for at least half of our total sales,” Said Somoski.

For all of your fresh bakery needs you can visit Beagle’s Bakery & Café. To ensure fresh product they work through the night on Saturdays explained Somoski. “We usually start at midnight with the bagels. The whole process takes about three hours. Then we start with everything else.” Said Somoski, “The bread while the bagels are cooking. Then after that we do the cinnamon rolls, pecan rolls and brownies, all together. Then pop in the Quiche. Then if we have time at the end we do some cookies and macaroons.”

Co-owner, Nick Somoski, is the face you will most likely see handling sales. He covers sales and shipping while his partner takes care of all of the baking. “I try to help him out baking sometimes but he likes to do most of the baking his self,” Said Somoski.

Come after 11 a.m. and you might see empty containers. “Yea, our bagels are our top seller,” Somoski said.
