First Market on the Rink!

First Market on the Rink!

Hello Market Friends:
We stretched it as long as we could, but it’s high time we shifted the market up to the rinkpad, where the hockey lights will come in very handy at sunset. There is plenty of great eating ahead, and we will do the annual jigsaw puzzle to fit everyone in. Please tell any lost souls you run into that we are just on the other side of the building; we don’t want anyone to think the market has vanished!

Marvellous Edibles is bringing apples, grapes and fresh chickens (along with many other marvellous things.)

Shared Harvest, Aldergrove, Plan B and Ted Thorpe will have loads of seasonal veggies- and it is SUCH a delicious season! Think mellow squash, hearty greens, lots of roots, sweet peppers, crunchy cabbage, shallots, onions and herbs to make everything taste good, and the list goes on….

Stock up on olives, oil and cheese! This is Angelos‘ last week before he leaves for Greece for his annual harvest trip. Country Meadows won’t be back at the market until mid-December.

Ali Harris will be back with fritters, rotis and drinks, and Tapioca Toronto will be cooking gluten-free crepes to order with market fillings.

It’s the week for All Sorts Acres with sheep dairy, wool and lamb.

Blythe will be in with Spade & Spoon’s many delicious preserves.

DeFloured and Knuckle Down are away ’til next time.

Need tools on occasion, but don’t need to own them full-time? Talk to Alan Majer of Autonomous Objects and become the steward of one or more handy tools which are shared in the community. It’s free and it makes a lot of sense.
See you at the market!
