Weekly Market Notes for November 08, 2012

Hello Market Friends:

Shucks, you've done it again! A really big thank you to everybody who voted for Dufferin Grove as Toronto's Best Farmers' Market in NOW magazine's annual Best of Toronto poll! We are so grateful for your support, and especially pleased that NOW writers took a moment to remind readers that the fun doesn't end come fall. Our vendors are gearing up for the indoor season, and all signs point to a better than ever year for winter eating. Great cool-weather crops, and growers who are experts at storing crops will mean top quality local veggies for you right on through. Add to that all our other great foods, and you can keep planning healthy and delicious menus no matter what the weather.

Next week is our official TENTH BIRTHDAY! Be sure to tell your pals to come on over for a piece of birthday cake on us. We'll be on the rink this week, and quite possibly next, and then we'll set up in and around the rinkhouse so the skating season can get underway.

Here's some vendor news:

Sosnickis' contribution: "Our fresh sauerkraut is coming to Dufferin! Raw, organic and unpasteurized in glass jars and not frozen this year! We just ask that you keep the jar shut and refrigerated at home. The ultimate superfood for your guts! Also we'll bring our frozen sweet corn and green beans for those that are craving those flavours again! Field crops are still in abundance and some warmer weather means the Spinach, Tatsoi, Broccoli, Leeks, Beets, Celeriac and Kale are still field fresh. Fingerlings and Red Potatoes, Garlic, Onions and Cabbages we'll bring from storage. See everyone for a great fall market!" Jessie & Ben

Knuckle Down Farm News: "Crossing my fingers we will have another beautiful day. Either way I will be back at the market with radishes, carrots, turnips, red onions, winter squash and more black futzu pumpkins as well as some sweet sweet greens, maybe even a baby lettuce or two." Jenny

Last week for Country Meadows (Angelos) before he heads to Greece for the olive harvest.

See you at the market!
