Toad Lane Market
Toad Lane Market, Saskatoon’s newest market where everything is grown or made by the vendors, is looking for your input for next year. Where do you think they should be located? What hours would work best for you? What other advice can you give them as they become established?
Reply to their survey (if you can open it; I couldn't) or send them a message on their Facebook page.
I had the most amazing falafel wrap from Quillan market yesterday. It was huge and absolutely packed with vegetables. Along with the grated red and white cabbage, onion, and carrot there were cooked carrot slices and curried cauliflower florets, and a spicy red pepper sauce along with the tahini. And I'm probably forgetting some of the ingredients. So don't be shy - throw in a few extra ingredients the next time you make a falafel wrap!
“There is nothing quite like a good tortilla. Unfortunately, almost no one in the U.S. has ever had a good, authentic tortilla—handmade, still warm from the comal it’s been cooked on, from landrace corn grown, nixtamalized, and ground nearby, often by the very same hands making the tortillas.”
You may want to think twice about buying a tin of Italian tomatoes. Two of the largest brands sold in the UK (and possibly in Canada?) use tomatoes picked under miserable working conditions.
