Ground Cherries – like little tropical candies, these can stay on the counter for a week or store in the fridge for longer. Peel off the wrapper before eating!
Melons – the first few melons are making an appearance – just the green honeydew right now (tons more next week!).
Carrots are back!
Tomato Chutney with Green Coriander – really good with anything grilled, on a sandwich or in a wrap. Sweet & savory in all the best ways.

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