This middle period can be tough. We are about as far away from the next growing season as we are from the previous one and fresh, local produce is but a distant memory. However, you can still find locally-grown vegetables like potatoes, onions, beets, carrots, cabbage, squash as well as apples in the Dandelion Foods produce section.
A few of our staff recently attended an event at the Two Rivers Food Hub to meet with food growers and producers to discuss our needs as buyers and their upcoming growing/production season. It was a potluck and we were asked to create a dish that celebrated local by using ingredients purchased from local farmers/producers, through the Food Hub. Farhat made a carrot salad, featuring delicious, sweet carrots from Patchwork Gardens near Kingston. This salad is sure to bring colour to your table and celebrates the local vegetables that are still available. Enjoy!
