It’s so nice to see the produce starting to come in. We were happy to have Michael of Northumberland Hills Farm back to the market last Saturday with a table piled high with fresh radishes.
Nadia of Undercover Farm is also back on the scene. This year she’ll be occasionally vending on Wednesdays instead of Saturdays some weeks as her family commitments allow. We’re so happy to have her back!
Cuppa sold out of their Key Lime Pie Energy Bites really fast last Saturday. If you haven’t had a chance to try one yet, they are nutritious little snacks packed with tasty combinations of seeds, fruit, nuts, and grains. They try to bring three different varieties each week. Word on the street is that they’ll soon be introducing cold drinks onto their menu. Stay tuned!
Don’t forget to check out what’s inside the coolers! Our vendors practice good food handling practices. One of the important rules for us to follow is “keep cold food cold”. Russett Farms, Braelea Acres, Healey Falls Bison Farms, Rainbow Terrace, Melly Rolls, and Glenlea Farm are some of the vendors who have coolers on their tables to keep their food fresh (or frozen). Read their signs, and don’t be shy to ask to see what’s in the coolers. There’s no pressure to buy. We love to talk about our food!
New artisan vendor Relatively Rustic is joining us on Saturday. If you live or cottage on the river, you’ll love their new line of river themed items for your home.
Environmental group Blue Dot Northumberland, is on the books to use our community stall this week. They got rained out on the long weekend but we’re glad they were able to reschedule. They are a non-profit group that is working towards ensuring that all Canadians have the legal right to fresh air, clean water, and safe food. They’d love to talk to you about their project!
See you this week!
