That nagging feeling about summer winding down is inevitable when we make that turn of the calendar to August. Don’t despair! We have the cure for that feeling – come to the East Lynn Farmers’ Market and turn a regular Thursday night into a perfect summer experience.
Peaches! Have you had your first taste of a glorious Ontario peach yet this season? I was eating some that I picked up at a farmers’ market up north the other day with my kids and I wasn’t even lying to them when I told them that they tasted like candy. (They agreed and a big fight ensued about who got to eat them, but I digress…) Pro tip: Bring a sturdy tote in which to get your peaches home.
