It’s all about the Great White North and helping celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday this weekend at the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market where red and white is the theme. Start your day with Aberfritters where the Moch family will “Canadianize” your single order of succulent apple fritters. What does that mean? Come and find out! They are also offering a promotion on half and full dozen orders: a $1 coupon off your next order.

If you’ve already had the Optimist’s pancake breakfast at the Puslinch Community Centre then come on over to the market after for a special delight. The Burrs and the Bees will have their first batch of 2017 spring honey. 2017 will be a special year for spring honey because they’ve had an extra flow of nectar from the locust trees this year. The bees can only get nectar from Honey Locust and Black Locust trees when the temperatures are high and this year they were. This produces a very special and very mild honey.

Highlights this week are:
Produce
Salad Days Farm: sugar snap peas, zucchini
Terra Verde Homestead: pea shoots and spring turnips
Warner Orchards: cherries and strawberries

Meats, Dairy and Eggs
Wagyu World: Wagyu pepperettes, fresh sirloin and chuck steaks

Prepared Foods
Aberfritters: apple fritters
Tigchelaar Orchard: variety of meat pies including lamb, homemade all natural fruit roll ups, and a delicious garlic scape pesto
Chevs: Serbian BBQ
Rice Berry: Thai food

Crafts
Personal Touches: handmade knits with yarn spun from her own sheep
Claudia Stocker: hand cream, foot cream, body lotions, citronella mist and salt scrubs

Other
Debbie Leinhart: potted plants, flowers and preserves
Mangia Cake Organics: homemade pasta sauce

The Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market is alive and well and open for business. If you live in South Guelph this is the closest local farmers market to you and there is plenty of free parking and fresh air!

Come support this local market and join us to celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial at the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market, at the Optimist Recreation Centre’s outdoor pad, 23 Brock Road S in Aberfoyle, next to the Puslinch Community Centre. Saturday, July 1 from 8am to 1pm.
