Weekly Market Notes for June 7, 2007

Hello Market Friends:

It's going to be a heavenly June day to be at the market. "Eating your greens" can hardly get better.

Please have a look at our website "Food News" section for some of the latest on new markets in Toronto and an editorial prompted by recent media coverage. Here's the link::

While you're browsing, you might want to check our Vendors page as well, where you can find lots of information including contact numbers and emails for placing orders.

Some news from the vendors:

From Monika of Greenfields:

"There's no denying that the local bounty is finally here for the season! The next few weeks our chards and kales are an extra special treat since they are still so tender that they can be eaten raw as a nutrient-packed addition to any salad. Baby collard greens are ready for market, as is our spicy red mustard - perfect as a flavorful addition to any dish. Fresh baby kohlrabi, dandelion greens, rhubarb, asparagus and chives round out Greenfields' produce for this week. In addition, we have some delicious fruits such as peaches, pink lady apples, and artichokes to offer. Won't be long before we see some of our own rosy strawberries! See you in the park!"

From the Sosnickis:

"Ben will be bringing the first of our field lettuce and spinach tomorrow! Welsh's asparagus as well!"

From Jonathan Forbes:

"I'll have lots of Pheasant-back mushrooms, organic maple syrup in the 250ml, 1 liter and 4 liter jugs, plus dried mushrooms, wild fruits and veggies."

Since we expect about 28 vendors, this is just a taste!

The superintendent of the apartment building across from the market has appreciated our efforts to improve parking congestion problems, and we thank drivers for supporting the market by using legal parking spots. Of course, this being Environment Week, let's celebrate the growing network of neighbourhood markets making it easier to walk or ride to great local food.

See you at the market!
