Hey market pals, who loves ya? We do! Come on over and visit your favourite farmers and vendors! They’re bringing plenty of good, clean food, and treats for the sweet, too.

vday chestChocoSol has packed four of their Love Bars plus a Vanilla Sea Salt and a Cherry D’Amour Bar into their Valentine’s Chests! Who wouldn’t love to open one of these?

The Forbes tables will be well-supplied for a walk on the wild side, with packages of dried wild mushrooms, bottles of rose petal syrup, and the ultimate luxury: preserves made from tiny wild strawberries.

Krista, the reigning Queen of Tarts, wrote from the bakery with DeFloured‘s list of February temptations: Flourless Chocolate Hearts, Chocolate Cherry Tarts, Baked Caramel Salted Chocolate Tarts, and Lemon Raspberry Tarts. I’m sorry, there is no way to shorten that list, they simply all must be eaten. There will be lots of savoury choices, too.

Weekend Brunch? Plan your menu: maple syrup for the waffles from Spade & Spoon, sausages and bacon from Marvellous Edibles, all kinds of cheeses from Monforte, yogurt and eggs from Country Meadows, a wonderful salad and some herbal tea from Kind Organics, smoked fish from Lovell Springs, and a fruit salad made with some of the winter extras Plan B brings in. Oh, and coffee from ChocoSol, too.

Bees Universe will be back with honey, plain, creamed, with spices, or in the comb, beeswax candles, lovely skin cream, and honey sticks for the kids.

This is the week that steadfast stamp-collectors will begin receiving Loyal Eaters Rewards! Bring those ten-stamp cards to Anne or Pia, and we’ll hand over ten market bucks, plus a voucher for a ‘bonus bag’ of Kind Greens. Participants will also have a chance to win a gift basket of goodies from the vendors. On top of all that, you’ll receive a sincere thank you for coming out to the winter market so faithfully.

It’s going to be a love-ly week.
See you at the market!
