To Market, To Market

I do not know what it is about me that makes the skies open when I go to the Green Barn Farmers' Market but it certainly does rain every time I go there.  Despite the downpour the vendors were outside.Cherries, both black and white, have joined strawberries in some of the stalls.  There were more vegetables, even some very early broccoli.

What with Fish Shack's sandwiches, the Irish scones, Ali's cinnamon buns, and a host of other treats,there is always a lot of good snacking to be had at this market.  A new stand is selling tiny donuts.  Fried in organic coconut oil, these wholewheat goodies are light as air without the slightest hint of grease, and are yours for $4.00 per dozen.

Take heart would-be gardeners who are a little slow off the mark.  Urban Harvest still has a good selection of heirloom tomato plants, herbs, and butterfly- attracting plants such as buddleia.  Owner Colette Murphy has opened a storefront on Sorauren(  Well worth a trip to Parkdale.
