Market Minute. Sunrise Fundraiser!

peaches  ice cream

This week the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market is partnering with their vendors to raise funds for

Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learning Centre, a great organization right here in Puslinch.

Sunrise mission is “to develop the full potential of children and adults with disabilities and lead

them closer to independence through a therapy, recreation, horse riding, life skills and farm

related activity program.”

It’s peach season and Sunrise will be serving Warner Orchards peaches and Dover Dairy Bar

ice cream at Dover’s stall. The cost is a pay what you wish donation. And the first 75 donations

of $10 or more will receive their treat in a Sunrise Martini glass! Click here to find out more about Sunrise

Have you tried Aberfoyle’s own Hitchhiker Lemonade? The gals will be back this Saturday and

if you haven’t tried this delicious lemonade concocted from a homemade recipe you haven’t lived

yet! All natural ingredients in six fabulous flavours will make you feel like summer. Hitchhiker

is donating $1 from each 6 pack to Sunrise. I’ve had all six and I can’t decide my favourite yet so

I will keep trying.

Visit the market’s community booth: Slow Food Canada – University of Guelph Chapter.

They will be fundraising to attend the Terra Madre Giovanni Slow Food Event in Milan, Italy.

Buy tickets to win a giant basket of local seasonal produce and help this group learn more

internationally about Slow Food.

If you have been following the Market Minute every week you will know I often slip in mention

of my Baltic heritage. Being Latvian, fresh homemade pickles from crisp and lovely seasonal

cucumbers are a staple in my diet. So I’m really looking forward to trying out the Market Fresh

recipe of the week: Crispy Garlic Dill Pickles!! Click here for the recipe.

Be a good peach (or pickle!) and 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
