Loose lips sink ships, but TULIPS? Local, organic, stunning tulips from Floralora? They can lift even shipwrecked hearts! This Thursday, we celebrate the return of Sas Long to Dufferin, with her abundant crop of fresh-cut blooms. Time to spread some love around with these wonders of spring.
“Although we’re not quite ready to be back steadily every week, we’re transitioning our tunnels to tomatoes and other great things soon, so we need to move some of the great stuff currently in the ground to make room. This week we’ll have spinach, salad mix, arugula, bok choi, spring radish, chives, dry beans and some storage carrots, beets, rutabaga, parsnip and watermelon radish.”
If you haven’t tried Everdale‘s dry beans, I recommend you do. They are more tender and flavourful and require less soaking time than the beans you find in stores, and the varieties have the best names.
Even more good news: Earth & City is returning as well, with thirst-quenching lemonades, tasty kale smoothies, and good things to eat that are good for you, too.
Happy Birthday week to Ruth Klassen, founder of Monforte Dairy and defender of great Canadian cheese!
Come on over to the park and put some spring in your step.
See you at the market!
