New Neighbours!

We would like to officially welcome La Parrillada Grill to the Market! This Latin restaurant specializes in bringing the flavours of the South to the true North. I walked past the new spot the other day and saw a mountain of guacamole...what a beautiful sight! After tasting some of the items on their menu, I have to recommend the guacamole and pupusas! Both were so fresh and flavourful and definitely made for a filling lunch!
Since 2000, La Parrillada Grill’s mission has been to provide high-quality food for all who wish to combine fun and enjoyable ambiance with skillful cooking into one extraordinary dining experience. Stop by the Market to welcome our newest addition, and try some breakfast food, tacos, empanadas and more!


This is the list, folks! See who you can find at the Farmers’ Market this Saturday, November 19th! Click on their names to find information on pre-orders and to learn more about their farms and businesses!


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


Cauliflower – my favorite way to prepare cauliflower is to chop it into florets, toss it with olive, salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of ground cumin before roasting it in a hot (425˚) oven til the edges are lightly blackened.

Cilantro – the last of the outdoor cilantro.

Focaccia Fridays – will I get tired of focaccia? Maybe – but not yet! I call it Focaccia Fridays coz it’s baked on Friday – you can order it for Saturday, but just know that it’ll be made on Friday. Nothing a little toast can’t fix 😉 this week – Fingerling Potato with Garlic & Rosemary. Organic and 100% sourdough.

Yu Choy (Choy Sum) – think of this as the spinach-y cousin of pok choi. It has crispy stems and that juicy whisper of mustard, but with lots of green leaves that wilt nicely. Fantastic in a stir fry or broth-y soup.

Cauliflower Pickle – my favorite (and Hayley’s too!) ferment – chock full of vegetables with lots of spices, it’s great on rice, stuffed in a wrap, or paired with your morning egg.


Lucy will be performing this Saturday, outside on the Rotary Square 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!


Donald will be performing outside on the Rotary Square this Saturday 11am to 1pm.

Donald was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. He started playing the piano at the age of 7 with encouragement from his parents. When he was 17 years old, he found his brother-in-law’s bass guitar, and by the next morning, he had taught himself the bass lines to a few songs. His passion for the bass guitar and for music, in general, grew from there.

When he started college, he became serious about his music career. He studied visual arts, Jazz theory and the bass guitar at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica. During his studies, his main influences were the various bands he performed in; the Javier Latin Jazz Band, the Jill Gibson Trio and the Kathy Brown Band, which allowed him to tour all around Jamaica. During his final year of college, he started his own band called Airplai®. For the next four years, his sole focus was on Airplai® Band, which was his first independent endeavour.

Naturopathy for All Winter Warm Up is a fundraiser for Naturopathy for All. Making naturopathic medicine accessible to everyone!


Naturopathic medicine is one of the many valuable approaches needed to transform the health outcomes attained by many Canadians. It’s approach combines the strengths of many beautiful modalities such as acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, lifestyle changes, nutrition and much more to address the root cause of illness. Furthermore, naturopathic doctors work within an intercollaborative framework with not only other care providers, but the valuable array of practitioners that are transforming the lives of others such as herbalists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners to attain the best outcomes possible.


Yet despite its effective approach, naturopathic medicine is out of reach for many Canadians given the costs associated with it. Therefore, Naturopathy for All was created as a way to eradicate these financial barriers to make naturopathic care more accessible. So I invite you on the 26th to support this beautiful event as it not only brings together an array of holistic practitioners within our community, but its proceeds go towards funding naturopathic care for countless Canadians. If you cannot make it, ensure to visit Naturopathy for All’s website to find out how you can support their Amazing endeavour.


For more information follow Naturopathy For All 


The London Arts Live Lunchtime Bistro will continue upstairs in the Mezzanine each Wednesday & Sunday during November for more live music from local talent!


Wednesdays 11:30am to 1:30pm

  • Mary Ashton
  • Eve Thompson
  • Lucas Tensen

Sundays 12:00pm to 2:00pm

  • Orlando Valencia
  • Orlando Valencia Sr.
