Weekly Market Notes for November 22, 2007

Hello Market Friends:

At a gathering of Toronto managers this week, there was appreciation coming from all directions for the support the Dufferin Grove Bakers offered to other markets this year: baking bread for Stonegate Market in Etobicoke, setting up a temporary oven at Withrow Park Market, and joining with Ayal Dinner to bake for Trinity-Bellwoods Market when they lost their only other bread source mid-season. What a team! Those other markets are taking a long siesta now, but of course the bakers are still going strong at Dufferin.

While they were busy preparing their many delicious specialties on Wednesday afternoon (including a new trial, Date-Fennel Sourdough), the bakers saw a huge and unfamiliar bird sitting on the fence by the gardens. Maybe a Peregrine Falcon, maybe an owl, almost certainly a messenger of winter.

You'll need to bundle up this week, but the right foods to keep you strong and healthy through the coming season will be waiting.

Ute Zell of Smiling Goat & Co. will have home-raised (whole) ducks and geese (and wild boar next week).

Irene of Deer Valley Venison Farm will have venison and take-home jars of venison chili available, and there should be park rosemary buns to go with her hot food. Yum!

The field harvest is finished, but there are good stores of local produce from all the growers, plus a few extra fruit items and local greenhouse greens and cider to round out the mix.

Orders for Whole World Trading teas and spices may be placed for pickup at the following market by calling Beata at 416-604-9025.

It has been blowing hard on the water up Wiarton way, keeping the Akiwenzies at home. We hope to see them next time. We'll have to wait until then to try out Tim Clement's new crepe recipe too, as he will be absent.

See you at the snowy market!
