farmers market: An open-air, producer-run food outlet whose minimal infrastructure, absence of middlemen, and other cost-cutting measures make it possible for vendors to charge higher prices than in supermarkets.
cake: A leavened, baked confection whose discovery made icing possible. Early cakes had a rather loose, open texture, but the invention of the birthday (c. 161 A.D.) created the need for something dense enough to provide a stable base for candles.
This work of fictional reference would make the perfect stocking stuffer—whether your giftee has been naughty or nice.
