Saturday July 18 market

This week in addition to our typical array of in season veggies (lettuce, kale, chard, spinach, broccoli, beets, potatoes, zucchini, herbs), we’ll have

  • Organic cheddar from Millbank
  • Organic maple syrup and maple butter from Hoovers
  • Organic eggs from Organic Oasis
  • Organic dried black beans (just in time for summer vegetable soups)

Our strawberries are done, but we are trying to source organic raspberries and strawberries from other local, organic farms.

We are also part of a group that goes down to source sustainable fruit from the Niagara region. This week we’ll be bringing in cherries. These are not certified organic, but they are grown according to the organic standards and are most certainly not sprayed. If you want to guarantee yourself some cherries, contact us at tschumilas@rogers.com and join our buying club!

Big hug to whoever it was who dropped by the produce stand in an absolute torrential downpour last week and left payment inside my door. You are a true organic food advocate - and our organic food hero of the week award goes to you!! (I had already been soaked twice that morning and was having a quick shower to warm up so I missed you.)

Remember to drop by the produce stand early (before 11:00) as we only harvest limited quantities to avoid wastage.

Happy local and organic eating!
