Winter Farmers Market At Nat Bailey Stadium Until April 27th, 2013

17 Feb

Fresh Produce

If you have not tried the sinfully delicious Earnest artisan ice cream, the delectable root chips or the white truffle and vinegar potato chips, you are missing out.  Not being a morning person, it took some time for me to make my way to the Winter Farmers Market held at the Nat Bailey Stadium eat Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. I must say leaving my warm abode, was well worth it.  I have now converted a few neighbours , who are not exactly early birds themselves, who have made the trek out and are now planning to make regular stops at the Winter Farmers Market.  I must say there is something to be said for being the early bird though.   There are a number of items that do sell out by Noon.  So if you want first dibbs on the many wonderful offerings, it is best to get there earlier rather than later. Having said this, there are usually many similar offerings at hand, as there about 70 vendors which include live music, local food trucks as well as the Chili Tank which always seems to have a line up. The longest line up seems to go to Creperie La Boheme which makes hot crepes on site with fresh local seasonal ingredients.  Winter Farmers Market is held every Saturday at Nat Bailey Stadium, 4601 Ontario Street, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you wish to receive updates of what vendors will be at the market each week, visit www.eatlocal.org.
