Flavourful Saskatoon, April 3, 2017

Slow Art, Slow Food, Apr. 8
The Saskatchewan Craft Council is partnering with Calories Restaurant for Slow Art, Slow Food on Apr. 8.

Market Updates 
Floating Gardens will have Red Radish, Wheatgrass, and Sunflower shoots at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market for the first time. Give them a try and let Floating Gardens know what you think. They’re also interested in hearing what other crops you would like them to grow.

Kaleidoscope Vegetable Gardens will be back at the Market in April – with Tulips! And we can look forward to Spinach, Scallions, and Radishes around the beginning of May. All Kaleidoscope’s products are field-grown using environmentally-friendly methods.

Wine & Liquor Tastings 
Upcoming tastings at Saskatoon Co-op Liquor include wine from Australia’s Barossa Valley on Apr. 21, Argentine Malbecs on Apr. 22, and Italian Wine & Opera on May 4.

Jonathan Pereira, Plant Chicago, is a keynote speaker at Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council’s annual conference. Plant Chicago operates out of The Plant, a collaborative community of food businesses that are incubating a local circular economy. The Plant currently houses over a dozen small businesses including indoor and outdoor farms, kombucha and beer breweries, a bakery, a cheese distributor, a coffee roaster, and other emerging food producers and distributors.
