Shopping locally is often an environmentally-friendly choice, but we aren't talking about that kind of green this week! Our vendors are bringing some of the freshest early greens to market every week now, from spinach to curly green to mixes and baby arugula. These greens are great ways to load up on Vitamin C, Vitamin A and flavour! Be sure to visit our many vendors growing the green stuff for you this week: Dargatz Family Farm, Lactuca Urban Farm, Holden Colony and S4 Greenhouses.
The Sprouts Program for kids continues this week! Children between 4-12 will receive a $2 token every week to spend with our fruit and vegetable vendors. This week, our Sprouts recipe is Dragon Fries. You can pick up your copy of the recipe at the Sprouts table when you check in! For more information on the Sprouts Program, click here.
