An Apple A Day…

Did you know tappleshat you can still buy local (Wellington County) apples at the farmers’ market?  Yes!  Mervin Martin, of Sure Choice Produce still has a beautiful selection of yummy apples, for eating and baking.

Why not buy crisp and juicy apples that were grown in our own backyard, rather than those that were transported hundreds of miles by truck?

As well, Mervin brings in beautiful Ontario greenhouse grown tomatoes and fresh lettuce heads, grown hydroponically.  Again, choose produce that is freshly harvested, travels a shorter distance, and support our local farmers!

Here’s a great video that will teach you how to create apple swans from some of those apples!

See you at the market!

A Tropical Getaway

southAloha!  Don’t let the wintry weather get you down…come on out to the market and enjoy a taste of tropical paradise!

If you wear a costume/clothing that matches our theme, you can enter one of 3 draws for Market Bucks, too.   Kids, make sure you sit at our craft table, where you can make your own lei (flower garland)!

So dig out your Hawaiian shirt, your straw hat and your sunglasses, and sneak away for an hour of sun and sand…we can pretend for a short time!
