Farmers Market Finds – Heartnuts

I go to farmers’ markets once and a while and usually find something fun or interesting or new, or just have a really good conversation with a person at the market. It’s easy to see the same people every week, be they vendors, or fellow market shoppers – some of us have similar schedules. On […]

Things I Love Thursday on Friday: Dufferin Grove Farmers Market, Brixton Grill, Lavender, Chocolate.

One of my favourite things to do on a Thursday is to try and make it to the Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market. Yesterday was one of those hot muggy days. It’s a feeling anyone that’s been to Toronto in the summer would have experienced. When I looked out the window, from my air conditioned bubble, […]

Farmers’ Markets in Toronto – Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market – Tuesdays 3-7pm

I often forget about the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market, because it’s so close to me, and it’s tucked away in the north-west corner of Trinity-Bellwoods Park (at Dundas & Shaw) We live only a block or two away, so it’s one of those things that’s so easy to do – it never happens. I put […]

Farmers’ Markets in Toronto – Sorauren

Liberty Village Farmers Market. More vegan barbecue.

The kind folks at Round Plain’s Plantation (yes they have a website) make several vegan and gluten free items. Now I’m kicking myself for not grabbing one of the cinnamon danishes I saw […]

First Day in Toronto – Cruda Cafe, Gourmet Vegetarian Restaurant, and a Vegan Danish Bakery

Well I got in to Toronto yesterday morning (5:30 am!) and one of my friends insisted that I stay with him and his wife (it wasn’t hard to convince me). It is so much nicer than sitting at a hostel. Usually I love hostels, but I think the morning would have been awful. I would […]

Padmanadi Brunch and Downtown City Market

After work this morning I hopped on the LRT, and sat at Credo Coffee with the other Early Birds waiting to swoop in on the Downtown Edmonton Farmers Market. I picked up a package of LimeGreens Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips, and they were such a hit with the family (and pretty much everyone […]

Edmonton’s Saturday Farmer’s Markets

Yesterday was a great example of how wonderful Edmonton is in the summertime. I woke up bright and early in the morning to make it to the City Center Farmer’s Market and was pleasantly surprised when upon looking out the window I saw something I hadn’t seen in a while… a clear blue sky and […]
