September is here, and with it is the best of Ontario's late summer harvest. Arguably the best part of the harvest for the entire season!
You'll see seasonal favourites like peaches, nectarines, and berries, as well as plums, and melons of all sorts. You'll find the most amazing cauliflower, celery, cucumber, zucchini, lettuce, sweet corn, parsnips, and the start of squashes and fall goodies. (check out whats in season here)
September is a time of transition, not only for the Market, but for our families and guests. Back to school and end of summer vacations are on everyone's mind. The days are starting to get shorter, and that glorious afternoon fall light is starting to creep in.
Anyone will tell you I am a summer person. The heat, the sun, the bright long days are what I long for all year. However fall market days bring with them some of the most comforting & familiar experiences - flavours like apple pie, preserves and maple start to feel warm and welcoming. They remind me of warm sweaters and cozy crisp evenings spent with friends and family.
You can usually find me with a hot coffee from my friends at Silvercreek (no more cold brew once the thermometer dips) or Heather's Bakery on a cool morning, and breakfast from Sweetie Pies, Rachel's or the Veal guys.
There are so many amazing things to discover at the Farmer's Market this fall, I hope that you will join us!
