Though I love visiting farmers’ markets while travelling, it’s always a bit frustrating because I’m never able to partake in the produce. I ended up browsing two different markets while in Toronto last week, and though their growing season is a bit further along than ours (corn was already available), it was nice to come home and fill our basket at the City Market this morning.
Long lost sun!
We were treated to a beautiful Saturday, something that has been quite rare this summer. But on a long weekend, it felt extra special.
Squash blossoms from Sundog Organic Farm
Kale from Sundog Organic Farm
Zucchini from Sundog Organic Farm
Squash from Kuhlmann’s
Carrots from Kuhlmann’s
Beans from Kuhlmann’s
Cauliflower from Riverbend Gardens
In addition to a great variety of produce, some stone fruit was also available.
Peaches from Steve & Dan’s
Apricots from Steve & Dan’s
We also tried bacon jerky from Irvings for the first time! It was a marriage of two of Mack’s favourite things – dangerously delicious. Perhaps it was for the best that it was sold out already.
Up at the market next week: India Fest on August 6, 2011. Expect traditional folk dances and drumming. See you there!
