From Rachael:

Can you believe that August is around the corner? I'm amazed at all the tasty local food that is here.

Two days in a row, I enjoyed ratatouille. Tracy is the dear friend who introduced me to this amazing dish when we stopped in one night to watch a movie (yes, the movie of the same name). She served this tasty dish and it's all I can think of when I find all the ingredients in season. Thursday was a bit cool, so I intended to make soup with all the bits and bobs in the fridge. But after discovering zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes and peppers, I hunted up some onions and garlic, fresh bay leaf, parsley, basil and lavender and set to making a quick ratatouille (trust me, you can take hours to make this dish!). At bedtime, my son let his dad know that his favourite part of the day was eating the zucchini in the ratatouille... high praise! I loosely followed the recipe here. Today, my mom found more eggplant and tomatoes and made a similar dish to serve on pasta. The kids loved it!

Enjoy the next two weeks. I'll send some reminder emails as we add some fabulous items that are ripening as the farmers become sure that they will be able to harvest leading up to the 10th (like sweet corn!!)

Get a quick order in now so that you don't miss:
  • Yummy cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy. Order before August 1st please!
  • Organic flour and grains from Oak Manor. Stock up as the next time we offer them is in September!
  • Apple Creek Farms is our wonderful organic apple supplier. Due to the loss of over 75% of this year's crop they will have very few apples to sell and preserve this year. We will offer their Apple Sauce, Apple Butter and Apple Cider monthly until it runs out. They will not be pressing organic cider this year, so If you want to stock up, talk to us about a bulk order.
  • Have you found the Organic Ice Cream from Mapleton's Dairy on the order form yet? We only have a small amount as the freezer is already full, but it was such a hit that we will offer it again when we can.
  • Manitoulin Fish (Fresh and the super yummy smoked) is available with no limit!
  • Green Table Foods has added some Gluten Free baked goods to their offering list as well as a few new items. Their Quinoa Tabouleh is one of my favourites!
  • Country Style Pork Sausage from Snider's Pork Sausage! If you tried it this week at First United you can add some to your next order - It's even better on the BBQ, I hear! (The Folks at Breslau are lucky- they get samples every week!)

I'll leave you with a lovely article from The Record about our dear Wendell Bailey: Wendell always tried to do the right thing. We are honoured that Wendell found joy in his work with us!

What a wonderful time to eat local,
Maryrose and Rachael
