When Fraser and I were corresponding about the details of Aldergrove’s participation in the online market, I thought I could hear a gulp over email when I suggested that a drop-off at 8:30 am would fit nicely into our tight morning schedule. Would all go smoothly?
Silly me for wondering. Fraser rolled in precisely on time, with everything immaculately in order, counted, packed and labelled. There was even a bin marked ‘Extras’ with a couple of each item and a stack of bags inside, just in case. So happy to have another outstanding producer on our All-Star Team!
Speaking of All-Stars, for the first time ever, we are offering 5 varieties of Holiday Boxes stuffed with our Greatest Hits. Make someone merry with one of these fabulous assortments! Special thanks to Aanastasia Myers for her work on this project.
Wishing you well,
Anne Freeman and the Market Crew
P.S. Heidrun Gabel-Koepff has been carefully feeding the sourdough starter since March to keep it alive in the hope of starting the Park Baking program again. But with the new restrictions and then the renovation, staff have decided it would be better to give the starter as a gift to the community. Heidrun will fill mason jars and distribute these to community members who want them at the depot on Thursday. On the little label will be instructions to feed the sourdough starter as well as the recipe for the Rye Sourdough Bread the Park Bakers always made. Let’s keep this life going! If you are particularly eager to get some starter, send us an email and we will try to save you a jar.
