A message from Rachael:

We're back to weekly ordering now (Yeha!) so so be sure your order is in by Tuesday night! Ordering opens Thursday afternoon at 2pm each week, and we'll continue to update our offerings as we get them from farmers, so keep checking back if you want! I'll aim to send emails Friday night or Saturday morning and then again Sunday or Monday. Please look to facebook and twitter for 'breaking news'.

What a week!
Oh, the fruit we had on Friday. We had strawberries, red currants, gooseberries, raspberries and even a little rhubarb.

I learned that gooseberries are high in pectin and great for mixing with other fruits when making jam. It turns out the gooseberries from Friday are a green variety that are great in jams. Check out a recipe at We'll have "blush" gooseberries this Friday also which are sweeter!

Specials from our suppliers to you!

  • Kevin from Snyder Heritage Farms has offered Turkey drumsticks, smoked turkey drumsticks and turkey wings on special half price! We've left the price on the order form but your meat will be marked down after weighing. This will be offered for July 12the and 19th.
  • Harrington Lane Farms is offering a woolie hand felted sheep from Harrington Lane Farms when you purchase sausage, Leg roast (bone in or boneless) or loin chops
What else? So much more!

  • We're excited that Vicki from Winnie's Gluten Free Goods is back making excellent prepared meals like perogies, tourtiere, ravioli and soon we'll be adding lasagna! Her baked goods including an expanded selection of butter tarts and muffins are back too!
  • Tia's Gluten Free also has some new GF and dairy free offerings including her 'Rye' Bread, Italian Pallone (a round loaf) and Hamburger buns as well as her tasty cookies and muffins.
  • Oak Manor is coming Friday with al their organic flours and grains before they take a couple weeks off! Stock up!
  • We have so many greens available right now and we'd like to say a special thank you to Elvina Bauman for sending us lettuce to share with you on Friday (instead of tilling the crop back into the ground unsold). She has more greens if you liked them! She has Bok Choi, Kale and four types of head lettuce that she grows for us.
  • So many of our other farmers grow lovely greens too that will be in short supply before long. Check out the Mustard Mix and Swiss Chard from Angie at Fertile Ground and Braising Greens (mild or spicy mix) from Nith Valley
  • Microgreens from The Working Centre are freshly back now after the annual big greenhouse cleaning a couple weeks back
  • Monforte Dairy has some old favourites back. Bliss wrapped in tarragon leaves, Little Prince and FOntina with fenugreek to name a few!
  • Local Dairy has a new cheese called Oaxaca (how to pronounce it, I'm not sure!) It's great for melting in quesadillas, on nachos and more!
  • Nachos? We have only the best from McKechnie Foods! You can make quesadillas with their corn or wheat wraps with some of the Oaxaca cheese...
  • Ice cream would be so nice today. Don't forget we have Mapletons Dairy ice cream and gelato vouchers for Whole Lot-a Gelata ($1 off a 2 litre!!!) for you to buy!
  • It's too hot a bake in the house so be sure to get your favourite breads and sweets from Ambrosia Baking Co., Golden Hearth Baking Co., Grainharvest Breadhouse, Circle of Life, Bread Heads, New Moon Baking Co. and Floralane. Erma Martin has even agreed to bake us more shortcakes!
  • Strawberries to go with your shortcake, of course and more fruit to be added!
Enjoy the weekend,
