A message from Rachael:

This would be a great week to stock up for everything you need for back to school. Summer always passes too quickly and whether you are going back to school or not, something changes at the beginning of September (hopefully this year it will finally feel like summer). We will not have a pick up August 30th (the Friday before labour day weekend) and will be back with the autumn bounty September 6th.

Niagara fruit for this week:
All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids fungicidal baths and defuzzing of peaches. The size of the fruit may be bigger or smaller as well.

Torrie has two varieties of peaches this week:
  • Redhaven - Redhavens are the classic freestone peach for eating. A large peach with a bright sweet flavour and almost fuzzless skin over firm, creamy yellow flesh.
  • Babygold - These clingstone peaches are sweet and juicy with solid flesh (peel with a knife) that are perfect for canning. They stay form when processed.

From Torrie on what is coming:

I will have nectarines, maybe for next week, and then for about a month. My white flesh peach are White Knight and they start in about 2 weeks. I also have a very few donut peaches, likely next week. Sovereign coronation grapes will be starting next week. Himrod, white seedless grape in 2 weeks. And Clapp pears soon.

 Things to look for this week:
  • Rounds Beans - time to stock up! The freshest dried beans around!
  • Green Table Foods - Awesome prepared meals and baked goods
  • Jewels under the Kilt is roasting Ontario tree nuts with sweet (and sometimes some heat) You'll find them in the pantry section under 'nuts' and Lis will be sampling on the 23rd.
  • Get the stone ground or Mexican flour wraps from J&D Peters for lunches or a tasty mealThe amazing stone ground wheat wraps have new packaging and they make some of the best local pasta too! We will have frozen products only from them for the first two weeks on September as they are taking a vacation
  • This is likely the last week for Blueberries. We have conventional berries from Pleasant Berry Farm and no spray berries from Walker's (no spray), so now is the time to fill your freezer!
 Some upcoming local events: Enjoy this weekend,
