Fall has come around again and we are preparing for Thanksgiving and Halloween. After a particularly wet summer the pumpkins are extra large and heavy. Conversely, because of the extreme heat early this fall our local turkey grower has warned us that the fresh turkeys won’t be as big this Thanksgiving.
After a late winter and short spring, Ontario field-grown fruits and vegetables are beginning to reach the local markets. Asparagus leads the charge every summer and this year the quality and taste has been exceptional. There is still time to enjoy but the season always ends too soon.
Fresh Ontario strawberries are in our Port Sandfield Market now! Warm weather has made the berries extra sweet.
