Make your life easy and come get a Stuffing Kit – all the ingredients you need and recipe included! There will only be a limited amount available for sale so be sure to come early as you can so you don’t miss out. How good is that recipe? Lisa Richards from Magic 106 Radio is going to be making it for her family and even gave a shout out to the market this morning!
Since we are talking about celebrities, the market’s own Rootham Gourmet Preserves will be on Food Factory on October 10 (airing on Food Network Canada) that follows the field-to-jar journey of their new Barrie’s Farm Asparagus Smokey Antipasto.
