Aberfoyle Market Minute: Watermelons Have Arrived!


Watermelon Market Minute. Watermelons Have Arrived!

At the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market, satisfy your craving for sweet deliciousness. This hot weather is perfect for ripening this amazing fruit. Very high in Lycopene, a powerful cancer fighting antioxidant, watermelon is at it’s tastiest at the end of summer and early fall. Vandenbroek Family Farm has watermelons this week for your eating pleasure.

The florist for the day is the Flowersmith. Shop early, their beautiful bouquets almost sold out last week.

Come by and see the make-over we did of one of our full-time vendors last week. Lovin’ Oven Bakery has a new look but all the same wonderful baked goods. If you haven’t tried their potato scallion bread for grilled cheese then you are missing out. It goes amazing with our Market Fresh recipe of the week, Leek and Potato soup.

Save the date! September 26th is our Savour September event. We will have a special guest on site cooking dishes using a ton of fresh market ingredients. We will also have other fun things happening.
