Weekly Market Notes for February 24, 2011

Hello Market Friends:

I got a note this week asking who all is around these days. Time for a list for those of you who are just coming out of a long winter's rest! Here's the current crew and what they're bringing:

  • Ted Thorpe: storage crops and some extra veggies, Ontario apples and cider
  • Greenfields: lots of homegrown roots
  • Ben Sosnicki: fresh and frozen vegetables, perogies and more
  • Kind Organics: sprouts and microgreens
  • Alli Harris: rotis, sandwiches and drinks
  • Alli's Bakery: breads, snacks and sweets
  • Forbes Wild Foods: maple syrup, dried mushrooms and assorted preserves
  • Growing Spaces: jams, pickles and chutneys
  • Country Meadows: eggs, olives and oil, cheeses
  • Bees Universe: all things honey
  • The Park Bakers: wood-fired oven breads, soups and snacks
  • Urban Harvest: seeds, body care and CIPM flour (best to request that ahead)
  • Beretta Farms: beef, pork and chicken
  • Best Baa: yogurt, cheeses and lamb
  • Chocosol: chocolate and coffee
  • DeFloured: gluten free galettes and sweets
  • Ying Ying Soy Foods: assorted tofu and miso
  • plus occasional visits from Fun Guy Farms with mushrooms

Hope I haven't forgotten anyone. It's a pretty fine selection for the deep depths of winter!
Here's some news from some of the vendors:

Just a quick note that there will still be plenty of root crops from Greenfields this and next week: Carrots, red Beets, chioga beets, heirloom Lutz beets, Parsnips, Rutabagas, Celeriac, Watermelon and Black Radishes, Sunchokes and the last of the Daikon.
