Check out their websites for more information about their products and to see what’s in season/currently available!


Quaker Calm Tea – the dry version of Martha’s Herbal Tea, this bag is a local fundraising operation, made by members of the community and Quakers (I’m (Ellen) one – join us for an hour of silent worship/ meditation on Sundays in Sparta at 11am – sometimes it’s just what I need. The meeting house is old and beautiful with wavy glass on the windows looking out onto old maples.). It makes a great gift and often sells out before the holiday season.

Pesto Provençal – a pasta sauce designed to transport you! It’s got grilled eggplant & zucchini that have been blended with tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil. Dry cured olives and anchovies add richness and intrigue. Perfect for an easy weeknight pasta, secretly loaded with a variety of vegetables.

Dilly Carrots – lacto-fermented dilly carrots – I’ve made them before, they’re fantastic!

Ratatouille – French classic, it’s a stew, it’s a sauce for polenta, it’s a sauce for pasta, it’s a nest for poaching an egg,  it’s a buddy in the instant pot for some chicken or some lamb – chock full of veg, a capsule of late August. I recommend saving this one in the freezer for a few months until you’re desperate for a taste of summer.

Celery – crunchy and juicy, flavorful but gets along with almost everything in the pot.

Little GemsCrispy Green and Romaine – head lettuce is back!


Soak in the first signs of fall with these gluten free leaf sugar cookies with royal icing this Saturday from Helm Baked!


French breakfast radish, purple daikon radish, Romano beans, French beans, fennel, carrots, arugula, spinach, salad mix, and mustard greens. Summer crops like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants still abound and should hang on for a few more weeks!


these mushroom & fontina tarts from @morsels_london_on are delicious! Find them along with other vegetarian savoury baked goods every Saturday 8am to 1pm.


Lucy Morgan will be performing this Saturday, September 3rd outside at the Farmers’ Market 8:30am to 10:30am.

Lucy Morgan is a singer/songwriter from Port Stanley, Ontario. She grew up with music in her life from the very beginning and performing has always been in her blood. She believes music is our universal language and feels so blessed to provide a space for others to connect emotionally through her songs. Lucy released her first single “I Really Loved You” on all streaming platforms in 2020 and is set to release her debut EP this summer!


Cool Shoes Trio will be performing this Saturday, September 3rd outside at the Farmers’ Market 11am to 1pm.

Cool Shoes Trio is a collaboration of three of London’s premier musicians; John Brocksom (keyboards and voice), Rob Weatherstone (bass and voice) and Allen Jacob (voice). With a deft touch they bring a respectful nod to a wide range of theatre and jazz standards, adult easy listening and modern and original works: they add their unique stylistic flavor that results in astounding and emotional performances. The Cool Shoes Trio is an exceptional musical experience and designed to be scalable, allowing for the addition of top flight musicians to heighten an already remarkable performance.
