Saskatoon Farmers' Market: October Newsletter

You’ll get a taste for the variety at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market in the October newsletter.

Tim Yoder of Peasant’s Pick direct seeds or transplants 35-45,000 plants – on less than half an acre of land. He offers Market-goers a choice of 20 to 30 different strains of vegetables, including at least 15 different kinds of lettuce. Tim is also proud of his “big sweet onions and monstrous sweet carrots.”

Raw Serenity is a recent newcomer to the Market. They offer an amazing assortment of raw food. The sushi rolls contain a colourful mix of fruit and vegetables and are bursting with flavour.

Michelle Zimmer, Wild Serendipity Foods, is currently in Paris taking a Cordon Bleu course in how to make French macarons – “two little clouds of soft meringue sandwiched with icing.” “I’ve heard they’re tricky,” she says, “but I’m determined to master it.” An additional blog post about Michelle highlights her business skills.

You can follow the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market on Facebook. Or send an email to sfmnews@sasktel.net in order to receive email bulletins and copies of future newsletters. Thank you – and I hope to see you at the Market!

In case you missed it, here’s a link to the September issue of the newsletter.

Great newsletter...I want to come buy some food! The photos are great and I enjoyed the back stories of some of the marketers.
