A message from Rachael:

Are you looking forward to the long weekend or are you already off? Just a quick reminder that our order form for the next regular pickup on Friday September 6th is ready for you when you have a few minutes. We've added a few new items recently:
  • Sweet Corn from Kevin Snyder. We have 40 dozen available.
  • Edible zucchini blossoms (and lots of zucchini too!)
  • Watermelon
  • Radicchio
  • Broccoli
  • Purple Cauliflower
  • Romanesco Cauliflower
  • White Knight Peaches
  • Cold pressed organic hemp, flax and sunflower oil from Mat's Fine Oils
I wanted to talk about all the varieties of plums we have to offer. Right now we have blue, red and green plums available. Let me tell you a bit more:

Vanette is a Blue Plum that is fully freestone, juicy nice flavour, has some prune like characteristics
Voyager is a Blue Plum that is almost freestone, slightly tart, develops a nice flavour as it ripens
Ozark Premier is a Red Freestone plum, nice flavour, softens fairly quickly
Vanier is a  Red Freestone Plum that stays firmer longer
Shiro is a round, yellowish green plum with a pink blush. It is a very juicy, clingstone plum

And on top of all that we have:

  • Nectarines (now in 10 and 20 lb quantities)
  • Raspberries
  • Plums
  • Clapp Pears
  • Sovereign Coronation grapes
  • Blackberries and red currants
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 in the next regular pickup:

  • Lighthouse Lemonade. Surprisingly amazing with soda water (and gin)!
  • Biscotti from Circle of Life. They are in the Gluten Free Baked Goods section - a great treat if you know someone who would appreciate a treat!
  • Spud's Finest Potato Chips with new crop potatoes. I bet you didn't know they could get better than they already were!
  • 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
Enjoy this last long weekend of summer,
Maryrose and Rachael
