A lovely customer shared her market haul with us and we couldn’t help but share it with you!

“The most beautiful produce from @sungoldmarketgarden, as well as sunflowers from their farm – with @taniafloral, she is creating some wedding magic this summer.

@helmbaked always has small batch, homemade deliciousness.

We always leave @jillstable with a few bags of local goodness, as well as imported cheeses from France, honey from Greece, Italian olive oil, and fresh ravioli!

@coventgardenmarketcanada always has the remaining requirements!

@cgoutdoorfarmersmarket is always worth planning your weekend around! The best way to start the week.”
