A message from Rachael:

Ah, the last week of August. We just had an exciting Friday pickup and are looking forward to a week off. But not really. Next Friday there will be a special pickup for Niagara fruit and a few other things so that you can do some canning or enjoy great fresh fruit.

The fruit (among other food) has been amazing:
  • We have ever bearing strawberries available from Floralane
  • Mary from Apple Creek Farm  wants you to know that her organic Vista Bella apples in #2 grade make a lovely pink sauce.
  • Theresa from Garden Party is offering edible organic flowers. They are good for you and an easy way to make any salad amazing!
  • Raspberries
  • Nectarines
  • Clapp Pears
  • Sovereign Coronation grapes
  • Blackberries and red currants
  • Carrots from Lena Horst
  • Tomatoes and eggplants from Nith Valley
Niagara fruit for Friday:
All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids fungicidal baths and defuzzing of peaches. The size of the fruit may be bigger or smaller as well.

Things to look for this week:

  • Goat Cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy
  • Organic grains and flours from Oak Manor
  • Rounds Beans. Great for dips, soups, chili and more
  • Green Table Foods have their prepared soups, stews and dips available this pickup!
  • Shiitake mushrooms in half pound bags are back
  • Tell me your favourite so that I can share it with others!
Enjoy your weekend,
Maryrose and Rachael
