Hello Market Friends:
In case you don’t know what to do with winter vegetables, here’s a little inspiration from Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
I thought of sending a farm-themed Valentine, but ‘I’m a-tractored to you’ was the best caption I found. The rest were really corny.
You’ll be glad to know that we have a full house for our almost-Valentine’s market:
Jens from Marvellous Edibles is feeling better, and there will be more turkey parts, root crops, greens and specialties at his tables.
We’re looking forward to hearing about the workshops Cheyenne from Sundance Harvest offered at Carleton University, as well as to getting some of her sweet baby lettuce.
Rodrigo from Plan B is not complaining (too much) about returning to the garage this week.
Only DeFloured is missing from our list of expected vendors. Krista has been under the weather so they have to miss the market.
Ali Harris‘s fish supplier didn’t have so much trouble with the weather this week, so he’s back in action.
Gladys and Manny of La Mexicana are making tamales with assorted fillings.
The Dufferin Park Bakers are making:
Sourdoughs: rye, potato-rosemary, caraway-multigrain, olive onion
Artisans: multigrain, cranberry-walnut, kamut
