Friday's Pickup - order for 2 weeks!

There won't be a pickup on August 29th, so be sure to order enough for Labour Day weekend and the first week of school!
  • Blueberries! This is the last week we'll have Pleasant Berry Blueberries. 
  • We've restocked all the cookies from New Moon Kitchen! They are nut free, dairy free and egg free, but you wouldn't know to taste them! Perfect for lunches!
  • What better to go with cookies than milk? Have you tried the Golden Guernsey 2% Milk or 4.8% Cream Top Whole Milk from Eby Manor? It's GMO free and creamy like no other! Read more at
  • Theresa from Garden Party has lots of new items available! In the pickled section (under pantry), you'll find her Fermented Dills  - a bag of 2 large and juicy fermented cucumbers and in the herbs section, under vegetables you'll find her tea bunches! Don't forget the lovely bouquets made of upsprayed flowers (in the plants section, under other).
  • Have you heard of the "Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables"  popularized by Intermarche in France? Garden Party is offering their own Misfit Vegetable Mix - a mix of at least 5 vegetable 'seconds' - mishapen or slightly damaged. Half the retail price of 'firsts'. Give a home to the misfits!
  • Leeks, Eggplant and Bulk Beets from Bowman's Organic Produce
  • Pixie Melons from Lester and Irene Brubacher (Cedar Springs)
  • Organic Green Peppers from Lena Burkhardt are ready!
  • Gladiolus bunches from Lena Horst
  • Lemon Grass Leaves (in the herbs section) and saladette tomatoes from Brenda Knechtel
  • Winfield Shelled Peas are available again! Get your 10 lb or 1 lb bag! Great for freezing and enjoying all winter!

A note about our fruit from Niagara

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 wax coatings, fungicidal baths and defuzzing in the case of peaches. You will find smaller and larger fruit together in your box. 
Enjoy the ripest fruit first and for the rest, spread your peaches out on newspaper on their side or bottom (not stem down) and not touching each other and they'll ripen over the next few days.
Keep peaches and apricots out of the fridge until they are ripe as they can get a mealy texture when chilled.
