From Rachael:

Ordering open Wednesdays at 10am!
We're trying to figure out what works best and I think we're settling on the order from being open from Wednesday at 10am until the following Tuesday at 8pm for Friday's pickup. When we can we'll open it for longer (when we're closed for the long weekends), but I'm hoping that this will work well for you. If you like instant updates, you can find them on Facebook, but expect email reminders on Thursday or Friday and then again on Mondays.

There are a lot of new items available this week as well as many interesting events and stories to share. We can't share everything, but if you want to bring our attention to items for sharing, we'll do what we can!

I'm hoping that you all read this Friday night so that you can attend some excellent events on Saturday:
Congratulations Local Food Plus!
LFP goes national! Local Food Plus is "a non-profit that issues its private certification to progressive farmers who conform to the tough set of sustainability and production standards written for the agency by a crack team of agricultural and environmental experts."
By linking farmers with buyers they make it easier for you to buy local!
Check out the article at:

Have your say about the proposed Melancthon Quary Protest
Many of you have forwarded us information on the proposed quarry that will threaten prime farm land and water quality in Ontario. More information is available at and there is lots of detail at There are multiple petitions to sign from various organizations (including that are asking for signatures before Sunday night.

"Highland Companies has officially filed a 3,100 page application for their 2,300 acre up to 200 foot below the water table open pit limestone mine. Their plan will have a catastrophic effect on local business, environment, community and health, destroying an internationally recognized treasure forever and polluting the water supply of millions of people."

Okay, now onto the food!
  • Peanut Butter in 500 g jars from Kernal Peanuts is available again - they just made it last week!
  • Lavender and other edible flowers now offered from Garden Party - Bouquets too - Look for photos to be posted on facebook soon (as soon as I figure out how)

  • Time to stock up on organic flour and grains from Oak Manor. Perry knows that you don't bake much in the summer, so this is your last chance to order flour until Flour until Aug 12th
  • Soiled Reputation has Braising Greens - So good and so easy - Ask if you want a recipe!
  • Noah from Traditional Foods is introducing Ginger Breakfast Sausage at a special price and also offering the large size Ginger Sausages on sale this week! Ground chicken is also on sale.
