Beaning a Taste of Diversity to Your Table

Arlene Guffin, Founder of Ain’t Yo Mama’s Baked Beans, took a leap of faith recently and retired from her day job to bring her popular baked beans to our community. She shares, “I never thought in all my days that putting a variety of beans together with flavor and love for church events would one day be sold to a community of bean lovers.” Beans have protein and eating them regularly have many benefits.

Her baked beans have unique flavors (with no meat added). “Sweet & Spicy Original Hot” and “Sweet & Spicy Mild” are the most popular. Currently, the best way to get them is on Saturdays at the Winter Garden Farmers Market (8a-1p) and on Sundays at Orlando (Lake Eola) Farmers Market (10a-3p).

If your schedule doesn’t allow for a market visit, she accepts special orders, too. Many will order in advance for events and family gatherings. Arlene can be reached at 407-579-0404 or visit
