A Message from Maryrose:

Hello Folks,

I am going to try and keep it short. There is so much I need to tell you about. There are two more pick up days before the New Year! I haven't even begun to make my gift giving list for the holidays. Have you? Every time I ask someone what they want or need for Christmas the answer is that they don't need anything or don't know what they need. Our household is no different. What do you give to a person that has everything and wants for nothing? The answer of course is FOOD!!! We can always use a little great food to share with our friends.

We have a lot of gift giving options for you this year. Check out the gifts available in the 'other' section.
It is also time to stock up for your Holiday baking. Perry from Oak Manor has extended his 10% off sale through to the end of the Holiday Season. If you are not a baker or do not have time to bake we have a great selection:
  • Cookies (Vegan) from New Moon Kitchen including their seasonal Lemon Cranberry Crunch that got great reviews on Monday
  • Gluten Free Christmas cookies from Circle of Life
  • Breads - Lena Horst makes them from scratch!
  • Ultimate Ginger and Belgian Crackles - Golden Hearth Baking
  • Cookies, Stollen and Gingerbread people from Grainharvest
New Items
There are some new items that you may have noticed either on the offering list or seen on the Spontaneous Table.
  • Micro greens from The Working Centre... grown in Kitchener
  • Old Cheddar and Cranberry Havarti from Gordon's Goat Dairy
  • Cream Cheeses, Curds and Feta from Primeridge Pure
  • Maple sugar from Snyder Heritage Farms - Kevin thinks you should start thinking about your holiday turkey also!
  • Beeswax from Bauman Apiaries
  • We have new crop products from Kernal Peanuts - including Peanut Brittle, Chocolate Peanut clusters and White Chocolate covered popcorn.
  • Did you have a chance to try cider from Cider Keg at the last pick up? We just received a new shipment and now have all flavours back in stock. It is a great non alcoholic beverage to have on hand at holiday parties.
  • Have you tried Bauman Apiaries Raspberry Creamed Honey or their Cinnamon Creamed Honey? They are super yummy
  • Paul Bowman has let us know he will only have garlic until the end of December. After that we will have to wait for the new crop next year. Stock up now! For a special treat, buy one of Paul's Garlic braids to hang on the wall for easy access all winter long!
  • We are placing an order from Country Flavour soon! This means it is your chance to order full cases of their products such as - stewed tomatoes, peaches, pears and so much more. Just think of the pickle tray you could make with a selection of their products
The Nutty Bakers are BACK!!!
Many of you have asked us when we will be getting those great meat pies back. The Nutty Bakers will be at our pickups for the month of December and hopefully in the new year too! Anna and Mary make the excellent Pot Pies, Tourtiƃ¨re, Fruit Cake, Cabbage Rolls, Lasagna, Meatloaf and Sweet and sour meatballs that so many of you have missed. Watch for Steak and Beef Kidney Pie in the new year!

Local Artisans
We will be hosting a small selection of local Artisans at both of our December pick up dates. Here is a bit about the vendors who will be attending on December 5th:

Little City Farm
Homestead Herbals is a small home business based in Kitchener, Ontario. Karin is a Master Herbalist and her goal is to create quality handmade herbal products & soaps using organic, natural ingredients that provide nourishing, healing effects for you & the planet. The herbs used in these products are grown on our own Little City Farm property, or sourced from local organic farms whenever possible.



Herbalicious Teas are the original creations of Helen Theodosiou, a western herbalist, nutrition counsellor and owner of Revive Natural Health Clinic in Kitchener. Delicious and refreshing, the teas contain only organically-grown ingredients, most of which have been shown to be effective in addressing specific health/wellness concerns. Helen's Herbalicious tea line as well as her Luscious Lady line of skin products blossomed out of a need to provide her clients with natural products that contain the "real thing".
Studio 28
Marly Penner and Angie Karst teach workshops and create fused glass and mixed metal jewelry in their uptown Waterloo studio. Using an innovative new material called metal clay, they form and texture silver, copper, and bronze to create original and one-of-a-kind wearable pieces of art. Please drop by to see their creations and pick up a workshop brochure. You can also check out their website at
Esther Devries-Lasby is a local potter who has been making functional pottery for over 10 years, and she is happy to bring her pots to the December pick ups again this year. Although she is best known for her clay milk pitchers, Esther produces mugs, coasters, casseroles, bowls, plates and platters. You will find her pots to contain numerous textural designs as well as a variety of glazes. A new piece for Esther this fall is a collaboration with her father...look for birch candle sticks on a black clay pedestal.
Maryrose has been making gifts for many years and now has decided to spread her wings and sell these great items. She specializes in fibres - both knit and sewn. You can find many reusable items, snack bags, produce bags, kerchiefs and knitted hats. If you have a little (or big) superhero, check out her superhero capes!

Enjoy yourselves!
