PEACHES ARE HERE!
July 21, 2022
This is the list, folks! See who you can find at the Farmers’ Market this Saturday, July 23rd! 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!
This Saturday, check out Our Fields! They grow a wide range of vegetables, make small batch preserves, and keep bees for raw honey!
It’s officially sweet corn season! You may have seen the first sign of this summertime staple at our farmers’ market last weekend, but it’s full-swing now at Thames River Melons!
Stop by Joyce Farms for some first of the season and oh so delicious… PEACHES! You can also find sweet corn, berries, tomatoes, beans, potatoes, zucchini and more until 1pm on the Rotary Sqaure!
Do you hate prep but love flavour? Long on hunger but short on time? Let Garlic Scape Mojo from Killdeer Food get to work for you! It’s lacto fermented, so it’ll hang in the fridge for ages just plop a dollop in the pan to start some fried rice, soup or sautéed zucchini (it’s that time of year).
Nick Ewanick will be performing on the rotary square this Saturday, July 23rd 8:30am to 10:30am.
Nick Ewanick is a solo folk/rock/pop cover artist who was born and raised in St. Thomas, and now living in Forest City! Since early childhood, Nick has been performing and playing various instruments. He is able to combine some of these talents in his solo act thanks to his looping station which creates a one-man band feeling. While covering your favourite sing-a-long songs, Nick encourages audience engagement and requests; so have them ready! You can catch Nick all summer long around SW Ontario by following his Facebook and Instagram!
Cool Shoes Trio will be performing on the rotary square this Saturday, July 23rd 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.
This Saturday, join us in the market kitchen for our cooking class hosted by Kimi Abdullah. Kimi will be demonstrating how to make her favourite breakfast sandwiches!
