Saskatoon Farmers' Market: November Newsletter

featuring Living Soil Farms, Prairie Sun Orchard, Soul Majick Soul Mates

I’m on a short-term contract with the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market and am having a great time interviewing and finding out more about the vendors.

The November newsletter includes an interview with a fourth-generation Prairie farmer who is growing organically. Steve Guenther, Living Soil Farms, says, “The nutritional quality of our food has been declining for 50 years. We need to reverse the trend of declining quality and declining taste, and the only way to do that is by using organic methods.”

Joanne Jensen of Soul Majick Soul Mates makes bath products that are good for the soul. She welcomes feedback from her customers and is always interested in developing a new scent or in preparing soap for people with sensitive skin or allergies.
Wayne and Clare Pearson, Prairie Sun Orchard, are growing hardy prairie fruits – from sour cherry to haskap and hardy kiwi. Their ice cream receives rave reviews, particularly toasted coconut, sour cherry chocolate chunk and caramel pumpkin.

There are also lots of upcoming events:
     Gluten-Free Food Fair, December 5
     Staff Christmas Parties, December 7, 9, 14, 16, 21
     Cooking Classes for Kids and Seniors, November 17-December 15
     Friday Market Lunch Buffets

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!
