The season is picking up at the market!

This week at the Diversity Gardens organic market stand we will have:
  • Zucchini
  • Radishes
  • Green onions
  • Green beans
  • Cucumbers
  • Potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Chards
  • Kales
  • Collards
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce - bags and heads
  • Summer cabbage
  • Herbs – basil, parsleys, summer savory etc.
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Cherries (maybe - it depends on the harvest today, the rain has damaged a lot of the crop)
  • Eggs (from Organic Oasis)
  • Millbank organic cheese
  • Dried organic black turtle beans
  • Maple syrup and maple butter (delicious!)
Coming soon - peaches, plums, apricots - summer fruit season is almost here!!

All of the products at the market stand are certified organic, except for the blueberries, cherries, peaches, plums and apricots. Diversity Gardens is part of a group that goes down to source sustainable fruit from the Niagara region. The fruit is not certified organic, but is not sprayed, and is grown following the organic standards. Local, certified organic tree fruit is very difficult to find in Ontario. In the fall we will have local, certified organic apples and apple products. We will continue to source certified organic 1st if possible!
