It’s difficult to summon up the energy to cook in this hot summer weather. On these really hot days I’m also hesitant to heat up the house with the oven. But don’t worry! We’ve got lots of options at the market to streamline your summer cooking, and get you out of the kitchen and back out into summer fun!
Melly Rolls has coolers full of easy summer eating. Melissa comes to Wednesday and Saturday markets and has lots of prepared food options – nutritious and for your sweet tooth! Her sushi rolls are really popular, and come in a range of different flavour combinations. It’s the perfect choice for a picnic!
The classic summer dinner choice is, of course, the barbeque, and our meat vendors always come with premium cuts for your grill. Russett Farms is the place to go for beef. Sandra’s happy to help you pick out the perfect steak.
Did you visit our Saturday vendor Healey Falls Bison Farms at the Incredible Edibles Festival last weekend? They were at the festival serving pulled bison on a bun. By the look of the long line up at their table I’d say it was a hit! If you’ve got a slow cooker it’s actually a great place to cook your summer meals too. Slow cookers create a lot less heat than a big oven does and with a bit of work in the morning, dinner will be ready for you when you get home from your day at the beach! Healey Falls Bison Farms will be back vending with us on Saturday – you can ask Wendelin how she prepares their slow cooked bison. Their burger patties and sausages are also easy summer meal options.
Sometimes all you can muster is a piece of toast. That’s okay too! Especially if you’re toasting super nutritious bread like you can find at Wholesome Breads by Erin. Erin uses the best of ingredients, including local organically grown flour. She has several kinds of bread to chose from. Erin’s children have also been busy in the kitchen. Be sure to check out Zen’s shortbread cookies and Takeo’s Rhubarbade!

Lost Road Gardens will be back vending with us regularly on Wednesdays (as well as Saturdays). This Wednesday Ivar hopes to bring beets, potatoes, beans, and maybe cucumbers. He’ll also have some of Margit’s delicious raspberry jam!
