This week at the market you will find what you need for your backyard Canada Day BBQ including Canadian fish and seafood, grass-fed beef, heritage pork, vegetables and fingers crossed - some cherries for a pie!
Being at the market, shopping local, visiting with neighbours, watching kids play freely, soaking in the fresh air and sun on a picnic blanket, arriving on bike, chatting with a farmer, sharing gardening tips and recipes and listening to good music are all truly the Canadian way! So come on by and don't forget to wear red and white!
