Weekly Market Notes for November 17, 2011

Hello Market Friends:

You'll find us indoors and along the west side of the building this week, as preparations have begun for rink season, and we're ready to enjoy a cozier location. Lots of great fall food is coming in:

Andrew Akiwenzie will be bringing fresh and smoked whitefish; get it while you can!

Sosnickis' contribution: "To start the cold season off we're bringing Perogies & Sweet Corn! Perogies are certified this year for organic ingredient integrity! We're using Organic Meadow's old cheddar and cottage cheese in them combined with buttery onions...oh yes, they are decadent! Also some sauerkraut filled ones in a Light Spelt dough! Tubs of our super sweet corn available as well for soups and stews or warmed all by itself with butter! Of course along with the freezer goodies will be our Leeks, Potatoes, Onions, Celeriac, Beets, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts & PEPPERS! Last week for our own season green bells and sheps! See everyone at market!" Jess & Ben

Greenfields news: "The weather has suddenly turned cold out here at the farm. A few crops don't mind the cold and we will still be able to bring you a few things fresh from the field: Kale (black, purple and green), enough Leeks to win an entry for the Guinness Book of World Records and stalks of Celery. Also look for our sweet Carrots, Beets, Celeriac, Rutabagas and Sunchokes. Garlic, Onions, Pie Pumpkins, Acorn and Delicata Squash are still in good supply as well." Adrian and Lorenz Eppinger

We'll have no Country Meadows eggs, oil or cheese for the next three markets, because Angelos is in Greece for the olive harvest. In his absence, John and Irina (Bees Universe) will bring us eggs from their farm near Innisfil, where they have built an on-farm egg-grading station.

Fresh-pressed Bousfields' apple cider and fresh harvests are coming in from Plan B.

As of press time, I can't say for sure whether Forbes Wild Foods will have more Ontario persimmons for us this week, but here's hoping. Did you get to try these local beauties?

From Sandy at Berettas': November Specials are Boneless Chicken Breasts, Salami, Honey Garlic Sausages

Alli Harris (Fish Shak) is doing some special cooking using Jamaican pumpkins grown at Ted Thorpe's. Take home a jar of pumpkin, kale and ginger soup to re-light the fire in your belly, and try the delicious pumpkin fritters! (If we get there when there's only one left, I'll arm-wrestle you for it.)

See you at the market!
