Weekly Market Notes for July 23, 2009

Hello Market Friends:

I'll admit to hiding a bit from the news while enjoying some time away, hoping for a better turn for Toronto by now. Have to hang on for that, but in the meantime I'm looking forward to our beautiful, bountiful market:

The Centre for Local Research into Public Space will be bringing some park bread to the market this week. Hurrah! But wait, this bread comes with strings attached. The bread will be offered by donation to those who are interested in talking with us about some of the difficult issues we are facing. Representatives from Celos and members of Cupe local 79 will be there, so please come over and show your support.

Greenfields news: Pretty PURPLE SCALLIONS are here! Lots of GREEN and BLACK KALE, SWISS CHARD, COLLARDS, ITALIAN and CURLY PARSLEY. And two types of sweet GREEN CABBAGE, including ROUND and TORPEDO. And all three of our BEETS are back, GOLDEN, CHIOGGA and RED. And be sure to pick up a bulb of our juicy and FRESH GARLIC. See you at market, Lesley

Sosnickis report: Great harvest this week! Ben will be bringing in bunches of sweet white Onions, Carrots, Beets with great tops, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Roma and some round Tomatoes, Green & Yellow Beans, Cabbage, Swiss Chard, Red & White Potatoes (dug fresh today!), Basil and shelling Peas! Come hungry! Jessie

Berettas news: Get your grills fired up! This week we will be featuring our delicious *New* Organic Octoberfest Sausage (only available at the Dufferin Grove Market). We'll also be bringing back by popular demand our Organic Grass-only NY Striploins and Nitrate Free Spicy Beef Sausage. The coolers will be full, so come by to see what else we have going on!! See you there! Carly

Meg from Forbes Wild Foods reports: "We have an unexpected treat for this Thursday’s market…one last shipment of Sea Asparagus! Yay!"

The Akiwenzies are away, unfortunately, as they've had to make some changes to their facilities. They are eager to return as soon as they possibly can. We'll keep you posted.

Matthew Cooper from Soil Smart and some volunteers from LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) will be visiting this week with information on making Toronto greener.

See you at the market!
