Lauren’s WF Bakery is committed to using free range eggs. Local and farm fresh when possible. If you ever wondered why Lauren’s goodies vary in color, you can usually find the answer in the eggs. Free roaming chickens are often higher in beta-carotine and can sport some pretty spectacular yolks.
We love to enjoy a fresh breakfast scone or sweet dessert with a rich, yummy cup of coffee. Of course, the best coffee in Central Texas is created right here in San Marcos, Texas! Redbud Roasters is our favorite coffee and that’s not just because it’s local, fair-trade, shade-grown and organic it’s also absolutely delicious!! We’re so lucky to have such a great company producing great coffee right here in San Marcos, Texas! Here’s a little tid-bit about them, you can also read more on their site at : www.redbudroasters.com or visit them at the San Marcos Farmer’s Market (read about it on our blog post here)
Redbud Roasters is a local Mom and Pop shop in San Marcos, TX, founded in 2010 by Austin and Mary Van Zant, longtime residents of the Hill Country area. The redbud tree is one native to the area and was chosen as our name and logo to represent us as a local business.
We are artisan small batch roasters, which help bring the full flavor of the coffee bean to your cup. All of the coffee beans are fair trade and organic, as well as 100% Arabica, the premium bean. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, they are shade grown, which means rainforests are not cut down in order to grow this coffee. They are roasted locally for the freshest bean in the area.

Have we told you lately, how much we love being a part of the San Marcos, Texas community? One of the real joys of being a part of this business community is the encouragement we receive from other local businesses. This is perhaps shown best every Saturday, all year round, at the San Marcos Farmer’s Market which happens on San Antonio St. between LBJ and Guadalupe Streets from 9am-1pm.
Here you’ll see the true heart of the city as local vendors bring their premium goods to the San Marcos square. You’ll often see the same familiar businesses each week and sometimes see a few new friends join the ranks of the best vendors in Central Texas.

Thanks for joining us here at Lauren’s Wildflour Bakery! Baking here is not just for a sugar fix… it’s for that to-die-for treat that sends your taste buds spiraling! Our savory and sweet treat are each carefully made with artisan ingredients and fresh products. Our recipes change throughout the season depending on what ingredients we can find at their freshest peaks. Here’s a little information on winter’s seasonal fruits!
Winter is when most citrus fruits are at their sweetest and juiciest. Look for these winter fruits in our winter products for best flavor in season. Specific crops and harvest dates will depend on your region’s climate and most of these are only available locally in warm and temperate regions.
Clementines are small, sweet orange available from December through the winter.
Grapefruit from California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona comes into season in January and stays sweet and juicy into early summer.
Kiwisgrow on vines and are harvested winter through springing warmer and temperate areas.
Lemons tend to be at their best winter and spring.
Mandarins are sweet and juicy in winter.
Meyer Lemons are more seasonal than the ubiquitous Lisbon and Eureka lemons, with the limited commercial harvest running from December or January through May. They have very thin skins, making them difficult to transport and store.
Oranges add sunny brightness to winter eating.
Persimmons are available for a short window in the fall and early winter – look for bright, heavy-feeling fruits.
Pommelos have extremely thick peels covering sweet a sweet grapefruit-like yellow citrus fruit that can be so pale it’s almost white.
Satsumas have loose skins and a super-sweet tangerine flavor. Look for them starting in November and into January.
Tangerines of all sorts are in season at some point over the winter – from November through March.
