Summer’s coming!

I can feel it in the air! Okay, yes, it’s more consistently warmer outside, the tulips are fully in bloom, and I see buds and even leaves on the deciduous trees. But I really know that we’re well on our way to summer because my local farmer’s markets are starting up this weekend!

1) Main Street Farmers’ Market: Saturdays from 9am to 2pm.
2) Ottawa Farmers’ Market: Sundays from 8am to 3pm. Note the new location at Brewer Park across from Carleton University.

When picking a farmers’ market, it’s important to verify where the food is coming from and how it is being sourced. For instance, we have a very popular summer market in Ottawa but not all of the vendors produce their own food and some of it comes from distribution warehouses…so if you see bananas for sale in Canada, you may want to question where the other food is coming from…get my drift? Just something to consider.

But yay!! The markets are back! This is one of the most exciting times of the year!!
