A lot of things about this event are memorable, including live brass music the pastor and a few members of the congregation provide or those Moravian sugar cakes, a taste treat for sure. But one of the most popular food items over the years has been the Moravian chicken pies, a big seller.
“Folks are often waiting in line when we open at 9 a.m. to be sure they get several of them. I've known returning customers to buy 10 or 12 at a time so they can stock their freezers,” said Alison Carlson, leading organizer.
Bazaar hours are from 9 a.m. to noon and the church is located at 4405 Hope Valley Road. This is a fund-raising event that supports both local and international missions.
