Weekly Market Notes for February 14, 2013

Hello Market Sweethearts:

Your smiling faces make us so happy that we'd like your Valentine's Day visit to the market to be an extra sweet one. Everybody has something special this week. Come on over and treat yourself or your darlin' to our delights! A few previews:

"Love is in the air around Sosnickis! Total labour of love working on the greenhouses, picking up seeds and soil, trimming cabbages etc, etc! We'll have the most flavourful Fingerling Potatoes that everyone has been loving and lots of Cabbage! Perogies, Vegan Cabbage Rolls, Raw Sauerkraut and Green Beans a plenty. Happy Valentine's Day! Love, your farmers Ben & Jessie xoxo."

"Forbes Wild Foods has a secret for the St.Valentine's market. We figured out how to take one of the nicest smells in the world and turn it into a taste. Come by the table and ask for a sample of the Wild Rose Petal Syrup and you can be in on the secret. If the Valentines season is stumping you it is a great way to surprise someone with flowers or it's just a way to make the gray days a little sweeter for all." Seth

From Linda and Angelos at Country Meadows: "How about a nice portion of our wonderful plain yogurt topped with yummy freshly frozen Ontario Strawberries, and delicious Ontario Maple Syrup, an all Ontario treatie for your sweetie!!!"

Blythe writes: "I'll have a fresh batch of Borscht Soup for the market. Such a hearty soup, it's filled with our farm's beets, carrots, potatoes, onions, cabbage, leeks and tomatoes. Nothin' says love like borscht!" [Well, that AND Blythe's Cinnamon Heart Applesauce, which she will also have on hand.]

Kind Organics has teamed up with ChocoSol to bring us amazing herb-infused chocolate, and this week they've got His and Hers chocolate bars 2 for $7. Root Energy and Flower Power.

In other sweet news, DeFloured reports: "For this week there are going to be flourless chocolate hearts with a raspberry puree, as well as the salty honey and salted chocolate and baked caramel tarts. SWEET really sweet." Krista

See you at the market!
