The weather this weekend was glorious, absolutely perfect. When it’s like this we love to start our weekend by taking the dogs downtown, eat our breakfast outside while people watching, and then heading over to our farmer’s market. There is a booth that always has dog biscuits and water. Let’s just say all the dogs that come know where to go. Those of us on the other end of the leash get pulled along! It’s this time of year that the market really comes into its own. Tables start to groan with all the veg. It is so beautiful with the range of colours. Usually my husband will hold the dogs at one end while I make my rounds so I took some pictures this time as I worked my way through.
I love it as most booths use organic methods and are small local farms. One farm has been off the grid since 1979! I also found out they only cultivate 1 out of 45 acres which surprised me as they sell a ton of food.
We also were able to get into the garden and harvest a ton of tomatoes. We planted 51 plants this year so I will be making a lot of sauce when it gets cooler. This is perhaps a third of what is growing currently. Of course I’ve been eating them off the vine as well.
