A Message from Rachael:

Here is a quick rundown of what you should look for this week!
  • Grains from Oak Manor available this week and then not until October 7th. Stock up on oats for porridge and granola or better yet bake bread to warm up the house!
  • Rounds Dried Beans available again this week! (see below)
  • I didn't get a chance to freeze celery for soup this year, so I'll be using celeriac - Paul has it available with tops now, but the roots should be available most of the winter.
  • We had a limited amount of peaches in jars preserved this year. We used PF24 peaches from Palatine in a light honey syrup thanks to the bees at Bauman Apiaries. We hope you enjoy them all winter long!
  • It's bulk tomato time! Great for making salsa, canning sauce or putting up stewed tomatoes to add to your chili this winter!
  • Romaine and green crisp head lettuce is available now that the weather has cooled a bit
  • Have you tried the biscotti from Circle of Life? I especially love them because they are gluten free, but even if you can eat gluten, I'd recommend them! White Chocolate Cashew, Lemon Poppyseed, Mocha Hazelnut and Orange Cranberry are the flavours available.
  • It's zucchini season and Lena Horst has added Zucchini Bread to her offerings. Try it or any of her lovingly homemade baked goods!
  • Brenda Knechtel has Matt's cherry tomatoes again! Tiny, super sweet and still on the vine!
  • Bell peppers are about ready! Edward and Selema Martin have some chemical free ones available this week!
  • This is the third week of Honeycrisp apples from Martin's Family Fruit Farm. You could eat one instead of dessert and still be happy!
  • If you want fruit from Niagara, this is the last week to order! Peaches, grapes and plums available! They are on the order from now but I'll include more details on Monday's email!

Beans, Beans!
Of course they're good for your heart... but how do you choose from all those varieties? Our order last week wasn't delivered as Steve was out of town, but he'll bring us your order this week!
The dried beans, peas and barley we have available from Steve and Diane Rounds are so lovely and there is an amazing selection. The pinto beans are great for making refried beans, peas make a hearty soup and you can cook barley in stews and soups also. I found online guides to many of the varieties at and

Happy Saturday!
Doors Open Waterloo Region
If you read this email Saturday, consider checking out some amazing local buildings during Doors Open Waterloo Region. Most places are open for you to drop in from 10 am - 5 pm or so, but if you want to tour Air Boss (on Glasgow) or Perimeter Institute (Saturday and Sunday at two different locations) you need to book a time online. All the details are at and

Square2Square Sunday!
Take some time Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm to walk all over King Street on the final Car Free Sunday of 2011! They have a fancy setup for Bike Polo (I think) already up at the corner of King and Allen!

New Hamburg Fall Fair
Want to head to the country? There is a fair this weekend in New Hamburg! I hear the demolition derby (Saturday night and Sunday afternoon) is a sight to see!

Have a lovely day!
