City Market Report: Week 12
If today was any indication, it seems like the weather will cooperate this long weekend. The aisles of the City Market were basking in glorious sunshine. Martin Kerr was back busking in the square, and I know we’re not the only ones who believe it feels more like a market day when one can hear his voice resonating above the trees.
It’s always great to see new vendors join the fray, but in this instance, it was a familiar face returning to the City Market! You may recognize Rhonda Headon from O Sol’ Meatos, one of the two companies she and her husband Brian runs, but this time around, she was at the market selling her wonderful products from The Cheesiry. We picked up some two month old pecorino. Look for them the next time you’re at the market!
It was the first Saturday for field tomatoes at Sundog Organic, but Mack and I were too late to buy the pound we needed for one of his favourite late summer recipes. Next week! We still picked up a ton of fresh produce for the week though, including raspberries which we couldn’t wait to dig into.
