A message from Rachael:
Welcome to May! April showers be gone... I'm ready for those flowers!

Can you tell I'm enjoying this break?  I haven't sent you an email in over a week! It's time to put in your order for May 10th. Less than a week until we call and email all the farmers and suppliers with your orders.


I spoke with Tim Barrie yesterday and the asparagus are poking out of the ground already. They will be ready for us on May 10th - if there is no more frost (hear that Mother Nature?). As you are an understanding bunch I'm adding these harbingers of spring to the order form with the hope that I won't have to give you any bad news on the 10th. This is what makes local food so exciting... right?

Live music at Bailey's!
I've really been enjoying Paul's music at Bailey's and wanted to introduce him to you more formally. On pick-up days feel free to sing along, request a song or say thank you to Paul for adding music to our pickup days!

Paul Horton is the guitar player/singer who has been entertaining at our market pick up days. Rock & roll, folk, country, and "un-categorized" songs are done with a laid-back, acoustic sound. Paul started playing and singing in the late 50's with his brother and his Dad. He was a teenager in the early Elvis years and played in a rock band until the late 60's. Glen Campbell influenced his acoustic playing and musical direction through the 70's. These days, Paul still plays occasional gigs with his brother and is in the contemporary Christian group "Hearts of Praise", based in Ingersoll, as well as doing single jobs in the area. He is also involved with music at Breslau Mennonite Church.

When not playing music, Paul owns a business in Breslau producing hot rod chassis parts.  He has been married for almost 40 years (to a very tolerant woman). They have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and nine grandchildren.

Thank you Paul!

There are so many new things on offer right now. Here are a few:

  • The CULINARY STUDIO is offering a fresh 3 grain salad, a market fresh soup and a gluten free lasagna made with zucchini and beef.
  • Spinach
  • Plants - food and flowers!
  • Asparagus
Don't forget to order a few things for Mother's Day and the Victoria Day long weekend!
