Weekly transit to market is a bicycle only affair for Main Street Market Urban Farm this year. Each pedal stroke makes Tim warmer as he hauls 2 trailers of product in “coolers” to keep produce from freezing at -13 to -31 on Sunday mornings.
Yet, as the Whig reports, customers are also warming up to getting weekly doses of farm fresh goodness at Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market. Both literally and figuratively. And, they’re doing so at our current Winter location of 484 Albert St, inside Princess St United church’s rear hall.
From 10am – 2pm we’re set up with fresh produce, sprouts&shoots, ferments, Kombucha, cookies, baked goods, and ready-to-eat okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancakes). And it’s a lively place to be. With Kate Weekes, Fiddle Earth and other local musos playing tunes, the bustle and chatter of marketgoers, and the hustle to keep our big array in a tiny display stocked, it’s a hopping destination.
Haven’t come out yet this year? Or ever? Come visit and take home a taste of what you’ve been missing. Warm up to conversation and farm fresh food. As we always say, “Come for coffee, stay for lunch, and take home dinner!”
