The trees are lush with green canopies, rhubarb stalks are unfurling their wide leaves, asparagus bundles are piled high on vendors tables, and peak strawberry season is just a couple weeks away. June is where so much of the fun begins at the Saturday Farmers Market and we are so glad you are here to explore the bounty of local Ontario produce with us.
What's in season this month?
Early June: Asparagus, radishes, bok choi, pak choi, spinach, lettuces, rhubarb, tender kale, morel mushrooms
Late June: Strawberries, cherries, cauliflower, beans, broccoli, peas, green house tomatoes, green house cucumbers, garlic scapes
With the warmer weather and Ontario moving towards resuming outdoor activities with smaller crowds, what better way to enjoy this month than a market trip plus picnic in the park? We reached out to our bakery vendors for their tips on what to bring to a picnic.
Tips from our bakery vendors at the Saturday Farmers Market on what to bring to a picnic
Molly B’s Gluten Free Kitchen
Fran from Molly B's Gluten-Free Kitchen says a great addition to any picnic, barbecue or a treat at any time is their amazingly moist and fudgy brownie or delectable wild blueberry tarts!
Molly B’s Gluten Free Kitchen is a family-owned, local, artisanal, all gluten-free, nut-free and non-GMO bakery with vegan and vegetarian options. They have been at the Saturday Farmers Market for at least 7 years.
The Spent Goods Company
Sophi from The Spent Goods Company says they would bring their pretzels, a baguette, and maybe some crackers too. Their pretzels are amazing with nothing at all or warmed and dipped in a mustard sauce. The baguettes are great to make few delicious sandwiches and the crackers are perfect with a hummus dip.
The Spent Goods Company works with organizations to re-imagine food by-products, reducing their expenses and carbon footprint while generating new revenue sources. They upcycle food by-products and feed people instead.
Reza from Alma Bakery says a great addition to any picnic is their tomato & basil bread, accompanied by their marinated olives, a mint yogurt dip, and classic or roasted red pepper hummus. Their breads and dips make a great appetizer, or can be served with barbeque meats, salads or sandwiches.
Alma Bakery is a family-owned business started in 2014 in St. John, New Brunswick. They moved to Toronto in 2018 and shortly after joined the Saturday Farmers Market. Their products are a combination of Italian and Persian recipes.
