Local it is!

Today was a great day for local food in Kingston.  A new market had it’s grand opening with great success.  The Memorial Centre Farmers Market will now be running every Sunday from 9am – 2pm!

5  local food vendors really stood out for me:

  1. Ironwood Organics – Producers of Red Fife Wheat Stone Ground Flour
  2. Hilborn Family Farm – Pastured Pork, Poultry and Beef
  3. Hanover View Farms – Grass-fed Pork and Beef
  4. Maple-Lim Farm – frozen fryer rabbits, rabbit sausage, ground meat, and pot pies. Oh, and POPCORN kernels
  5. Memories of Alexandria – Mediterranean Cuisine – I bought Tabouleh Bulgur, delish! ( no website – moniquehaggar@yahoo.ca)

After today I think we are about 70% local and will be 80-90% when local produce is at it’s peak! Yay, it can be done and without too much effort.  As the Eastern Ontario Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation I have a great resource list for local food.  If you would like one, please email trishamorris@live.com with the subject WAPF Resource List.
