Market Minute: Bacon Makes Everything Better!


Mushrooms

It’s the end of August which means that summer fruits and vegetables are at their peak. Here at the Aberfoyle Farmers Market everything is fresh picked and full of flavour. Tomatoes, carrots, onions, peppers, peaches, plums, corn, potatoes, lettuces and so much more!

This week’s Market Fresh Recipe of the Week features two of my favourite vendors: Top Market Meats (love their homemade sausage!) and Lincoln Mushroom. Have you ever met Vinnie? He makes shopping for mushrooms a whole new experience to savour.

This week the market hosts a new vendor, Everlasting Design. Beautiful furniture made from reclaimed wood and custom designed. To visit their gallery click here.

Crafters this week are:

Canadian Crystal – hand-made crystal jewelry.

JWare Pottery – whimsical and functional handmade pottery.

Kristal Creations – beautifully hand-crafted creations many upcycled from previously loved items.

Stamp & Tea Studio – exquisite hand-made cards, tags and gifts. Custom invites and announcements as well. Make sure to drop by to meet Blair and see her making cards and tags at her table. She will bring a smile to your day, I can promise you that.

The market is always accessible and has lots of space for strollers and wheelchairs. They have a kids corner sponsored by Sarmazian Bros flooring to keep your little ones happy while you shop.

Forgot to pick up cash? Not to worry, there’s an ATM for your convenience.

Come to the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market, open every Saturday until the end of October from 8am to 1pm at the Optimist Recreation Centre on Brock Road in Aberfoyle.
