Laika will be performing this Saturday, May 7th from 8:30am to 10:30am on the Rotary Square.

An ex-chorister, ex-librarian, and ex-lifeguard, singer-songwriter Laika Berdey weaves words and water to tell her stories of simple joys and wrenching heartbreak, exploring the ecstasies and disappointments of laying your heart in another’s hands (or at their feet) in a disconnected age of disposable interactions.


Kate will be performing this Saturday, May 7th from 11:00am to 1:00pm on the Rotary Square.

Kate Channer is an experienced professional rock performer with elements of pop, punk and rockabilly. She presents a commanding stage and will carry you with her powerful voice and musical talent through original music and cover tunes.

With Kate’s unique rock n roll vocals, the talent, and experience she possesses along with a powerful stage presence, and a simple love of performing together, the Kate Channer Band produces a musical experience that transcends the sum of their respective talents into a musical experience with broad appeal. Kate Channer Band will take the listener on a journey from pop to soul and even country, with stops at all points in between. Kate’s original music is magnetically melodic, while cover songs always include a pinch of their own “spice” to refresh and peak interest.

Join us for a Whimsical Mother’s Day Market this Saturday, May 7th from 9AM to 4PM and Sunday, May 8th from 11AM to 4PM.


Stefanie Stolzel and Michael Schmidt were both born in Germany and moved to Canada at different times in their lives. Stefanie recounts her early days at the age of eight, wandering into humble tea shops in Germany and aspiring to one day work there. Stefanie grew up in her family home in Germany to the scent of freshly brewed coffee in the morning and a steeped cup of tea waiting for her in the afternoon.


Stefanie moved to Canada in 1998 and went searching for high-quality tea with Michael, an equally passionate tea connoisseur. They entered a tea shop where the loose leaf tea was being kept in spice jars. The spice stained jars only hinted at the sullied flavour of the loose leaves. They decidedly chose to try out store-bought bags of tea. Soon the Michael and Stefanie found themselves indulging in German loose leaf tea when they would travel back to visit family: “We started thinking that surely Canadians would be craving this kind of high-quality tea here.”


Michael and Stefanie were living in London, Ontario when the Covent Garden Market had been demolished and was in the process of being rebuilt. The new beginning for the market conceded their inception into the small-business world. When the new building was up and running, an opportunity presented itself for Stefanie and Michael to come in every Thursday evening with their own IKEA shelves, 60 loose leaf teas, and a few accessories. This was the modest beginning of a brand.


Michael and Stefanie would sell their tea over the weekend and take apart their station every Sunday evening, simply for the opportunity to sell high-quality loose leaf tea to the local London community. The Covent Garden Market came to Michael and Stefanie and offered up a space in the upstairs of the market. In 2000 The Tea Haus was born with a real space, real teas, by real people.


Check back next week for some tea-centric recipes you have to try (and the teas you need to try them!)
