Ice Skating!

Happy Thursday! Thanks to everyone who came out to the Farmers' Market last Saturday. It was another blissfully chilly day - we had our holiday lights up, our patio heaters turned on, and delicious hot chocolate to keep us warm - and we couldn't help but feel the holiday spirit. We're in the works of putting out our Farmers' Market holiday guide! You can find that here next week. We'll have holiday recipe ideas, gift options, an idea of what treats will be available, and more! Do you have any preferences for things to include? Let us know.

What are our Farmers up to?

Wondering what our farmers have been up to? A lot of different things! We had Steve and Linda from Applemeadow pop by the market one last time this past weekend – the weather’s been so great, they had some extra veg!

Ellen from Orchard Hill (Killdeer Food Co.) has been making soups galore! These are often available frozen in containers at the market, or you can order from her online store. The new options each week are amazing, and you just know that they’re all delicious!

Dave and Dominga from Greystead Gardens have been working on holiday décor items, coming soon! Does anyone remember the options they had last year? Because I’ve seen some photos and it’s got me all kinds of excited!

Thames River Melons has wonderful gift basket options for pick-up at the farm. They include a variety of preserves, and you can add on local cheese, meats, and maple syrup!

Speaking of Maple Syrup, Lynch Maple Farms has the cutest little bottles of maple syrup shaped like maple leaves that would be great for gifts, or just to cheer up your table!

Dave from Dave’s Beef & Lamb will be back at the market this weekend! Make sure to pop by and come say hi!

Wilhelmina from Den Besten’s had fresh eggs for sale last week, and she will again this weekend and the coming weeks! They were a hot item and we can’t believe how lucky we are to have them at the Farmers’ Market!

And on top of it all, our farmers are still busy planting, harvesting, and keeping us fed 💪

Ice Skating!

Wonderful news! Our Rotary Square skating rink will be opening this year! The tentative date is Saturday, December 12, (weather permitting) and skating will be free!

The City of London is asking anyone who visits outdoor skating rinks to follow all precautions set out by the province and the Health Unit, including maintaining six feet distance from others, applying hand sanitizer when you arrive and leave any rink, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve, and staying home if you feel unwell.

The rink will be open:

  • Monday to Thursday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Get those skates sharpened!


Don’t forget: the Market is now open from Monday through Saturday from 8-6, with the Farmers’ Market now open on Saturdays from 8-1! If you’re looking for a quiet time to shop and be the first one to get your fresh groceries, the 8-9 hour is perfect. We’ll see you then!
