Think gardening! However tiny the space you have may be, you can enjoy the pleasure of planting seeds and reaping an Urban Harvest. Colette and her friendly helpers can provide lots of advice about the conditions needed by different plants, be they herbs, flowers or vegetables. You’ll find Urban Harvest in the rinkhouse.
Head to the garage for tasty harvests from Pine River Organic Farm! Bob Felhazi called as he was bracing for a spring storm out of the east–a wind direction that’s never good, according to him. Nevertheless, he was preparing to cut spinach, kale, salad mix and arugula from his greenhouses to bring to Dufferin. Pals Larysa and Vasile will be selling it for him.
We are so lucky to have growers with hoophouses and greenhouses so we don’t have to wait for the taste of spring; we’ll also have delicious salad ingredients from Kind Organics, Marvellous Edibles, Plan B and Small Spade Farm,. Make it a green and healthy week!
Don’t forget the cheese, too! Monforte Dairy will have a great selection.
Our Loyal Eaters program is finished now, so if you haven’t shown us your ten-or-more-stamps card and claimed your reward, please do so this week! We’re going to have the draw for grand prizes next time!!
See you at the market!
