Winter Fun at Dufferin Grove Market! ❄️

What a market we had last week! Yes, we were “gifted” with a little extra snow, but still you came – thanks for that! Feel free to collectively, pat yourselves on the back. 

And why wouldn’t you show up? Great food, great vendors, in a welcoming space. A very special market we have. 💜

And despite the challenging weather, fierce farmers like Nathan, of Nith Valley Organics, still gave a cheerful thumbs up, while doing setup. Go Nathan gooo! 🤸

Another reason to come in from the cold: delicious roti from Estelle’s Caribbean Cuisine. I overheard one customer describe the chickpea and potato roti (pictured), as her “market go-to”, because of Estelle’s “next-level chickpeas” – yum!

And a big “welcome back” to Vasile, of Green Florin! He was in Mexico for the past few weeks, but was thrilled to finally be back at Dufferin. Hopefully, that stormy weather wasn’t too much of a shock for him, having just come back from much warmer temps! Either way, great to have you back Vasile!

(A reminder that Green Florin is only here bi-weekly, so Vasile will not be at this week’s market.)

For This Week..

BitterBetter is back – yay! And if you’re a dog-owner, or have a loveable canine in your life, be sure to ask about their fabulous dog treats! 🐾

A few words from co-owner, Tammy Fung:

“It’s made from scratch, with of course, Bitterbetter’s Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat flour – and with the powerful antioxidant, Fountain of Life. No preservatives – so it needs to be consumed immediately. $8/60-gram bag, or $10 for 2 bags.” 

BitterBetter will of course, still have their full line of regular HTB products and teas.

Meet Tammy’s dog, Bobo – just adorable! 😍

Running low on maple syrup? Or dried preserves and such? You may want to grab an extra this Thursday. Seth reminded me that Forbes Wild Foods will be away on February 29th – aren’t you glad I let you know now? haha

And on a side note, I just love our market shoppers – yes, you! I often glance at the “customer landscape” each week, and always arrive at the same conclusion: Dufferin market shoppers are very thoughtful about everything that they buy. Love that! 🙌
