Market Minute: Fall Bounty!


Serenity-Soap
Welcome September! September is one of our favorite months at the market because the complete bounty of fall foods come in to season this month. And we have a few events to look forward to as well.

Next weekend is the Aberfoyle Fall Fair & our Celebrate September event both of which you will not want to miss. We will be open longer on September 10th. You will be able to visit us until 3pm that day.

This week our long time soap & bath product vendor Serenity Soap & Bath will be back with us. Linda’s beautifully crafted handmade soap is truly something to admire. She has a wonderful variety of colours and textures in a number of natural and beautiful scents.

Some sad news this week is the announcement that Wagyu World will only be available at the market for two more weeks. After that you will need to contact them directly for access to their pure Wagyu meat and hot dogs. But you have two weeks left to enjoy them at the market so don’t delay.

Here are some of the amazing produce you can find at our market this week:

Vegetables: Peppers, lettuces, squash, turnip, cauliflower, sweet corn, garlic, kale, swiss chard, beets (red & golden), parsley, beans (green & yellow), bok choy, broccoli, carrots (orange & mixed), celery, cucumbers (English, field & pickles), green onions, peas (shelling, snow & sugar snap), potatoes, radishes, tomatoes (red & yellow grape & field), turnips, zucchini (green & yellow), basil, chives, cilantro, dill, oregano, rosemary, summer savory, thyme & mushrooms.

Fruit: Yellow Watermelon, Apples, cantaloupe, donut peaches, blue plums, red haven peaches, regular peaches & nectarines! As well as plums, apricots, sweet pears, raspberries & wild blueberries.
