The Market This Week

Only two more weeks of the market left.  Only two more weeks to stock your pantry and your freezer full of fresh, delicious, Ontario yum yums.

Have you tired Tara’s homemade whole wheat pasta?  You really should.  Load up on apples, pears, potatoes, honey, bison, greens and a cornucopia of other harvest bounty.  Then swing by Kind Organics for a power-packed Wheatgrass Shot to invigorate yourself.  Too much for you?  Stop by the DECA tent for a steaming cup of Lincoln Lines apple cider (.50).

Don’t forget our very own student – Sam – will deliver your pumpkin directly to your door all in the name of his high school community service hours.

  1. I attended the meeting and by and large was impressed by the thought and creativity that seemed to inform the project. Though there were some concerns expressed I noted a number of fairly quiet positive comments among attendees. Since moving into the area about four years ago my wife and I have been dismayed by the generally down at heal look of Danforth East between Coxwell and Woodbine. This bit of intensification is an important step in rejuvenating the area and bringing more folks onto the street.
