A message from Rachael:

Apple Chips Promotion!!!

I forgot to tell you that together with Martin's Family Fruit Farms we're offering a free 22 g bag of their scrumptious Apple Chips with each order over $75 this week!

St Jacob's Market
Like many of you, I woke Monday morning to the shocking news that the main market building at the St Jacob's Market had burned down in the early hours. I was thankful that no one was hurt in the blaze and in complete shock thinking the building our family knew so well was completely gone. Imagining the loss by vendors who stored their hand made work, and items for sale. For the food vendors with their counters all ready for the next market. Anyone who had left personal effects at work...

The St Jacob's Market will be open this Thursday and Saturday for sales outside and in the other buildings. I believe that the market building will be replaced (and likely better than before) and the community that is the heart of the market will thrive.

If you want to help we can direct you to many groups that are working hard to support those affected. If there are any vendors you know that we can support by offering their products though our online farmers market, please let us know!

A few things we will have available at our own Friday Market:
  • Beans from Rounds! Great for chilli, soup, dips and more!
  • Organic flour and grains from Oak Manor!
  • Gordon's Goat Dairy tasty goat cheese!
  • Sunflowers - 5 long stems from Bowman's Organic Produce
  • Mums from Bowman's Organic Produce
  • Napa Cabbage from Nancy Bowman
  • Edamame from Elvina Bauman
  • Beans, Lettuce and Bok Choi
  • Edible zucchini blossoms (and lots of zucchini too!)
  • Watermelon
  • Radicchio
  • Broccoli
  • Purple Cauliflower
  • Romanesco Cauliflower
  • Cold pressed organic hemp, flax and sunflower oil from Mat's Fine Oils
Niagara Fruit
Torrie has had extra trouble with brown rot this year on the peaches, nectarines and apricots and if you need a refund or replacement please contact us so that we can arrange it!

Saying that, we have more awesome fruit coming on Friday:
  • Peaches: Redhaven, Loring, Babygold, White Knight and very limited donut peaches
  • Red Plums: Ozark Premier, Vanier,
  • Blue Plums: Damson (this week only), Italian Prune Plums, Valerie, Victory and Violet (see the descriptions on our order form)
  • Pears: Sugar Pears (finalweek), Clapp Pears and French Bartlet Pears (Bartlett Pears are coming next week)
  • Grapes: Sovereign Coronation (blue, virtually sedless) and Himrod (green seedless)
  • Blackberries and Raspberries
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:

  • New Moon Cookies: Always nut free and school safe!
  • 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!
  • 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
