Aberfoyle Market Minute: Field Tomatoes Are Here!


wagon2

Field Tomatoes are finally here!! There are few things in life that conjure up the taste of summer quite like a field ripened tomato! Make sure to stop by the market this Saturday to get some for yourself.

In addition to tomatoes, peaches also see their return to the market this weekend! Stop by Warner Orchards to get yours.

Did you know that our market is a wonderful place to seek some shade on a hot and humid day? Visit the market to get a quick bite to eat like a pure 100% Wagyu beef hot dog from Wagyu World and a side of fries from Aberfritter Snack Co. And speaking of Aberfritter Snack Co, you will be able to purchase a dozen fritters to take home and enjoy later, or as a gift for friends.

Nothing says summer like a bbq. Top Market Meats has their beer sausage in stock this weekend, made with beer from The Elora Brewing Company. Yum!

With the summer bounty upon us we now have a new vendor Nook Farms joining our market. Make sure to pop by and welcome into our little market family.
