It’s hard to find a food lover in this city who doesn’t rave about the Saturday Morning Evergreen Brick Works Farmers Market housed under their open air pavilions. The live music, the jovial exchanges between producers and hungry food fanatics rising in the warm morning air–kids getting their hands dirty and dogs chasing their tails.A� It’s a great way to spend those coveted few hours before the mid-day heat hits.
Lovers of this weekend ritual now have another reason to trek (or ride the free shuttle!) out to EBW on weekends.A� The team has introduced a Sunday MarchA�–featuring an array of artists and makers showcasing unique gifts, clothing and art running through to November 3rd.A� Did I mention there are snacks?
They’re got Bagel House slinging authentic Montreal wood oven bagels the way they should be made�with simple ingredients, hand-rolled, boiled in honey water and baked in a wood oven… fueled by maple.
Thunderin� Thelma is satiating food truck fiends with Zane Caplansky, owner of Caplansky�s Deli, serving up smoked meat specialties, Jewish deli food, and those famous fried pickles. Find Zane (and Thelma!) at the Sunday MarchA� on: June 30, July 14, July 21, July 28, August 11, September 8.
Plus, some Saturday Market staples make an appearance.A� The boys at Jamie Kennedy Kitchen are serving up their monstrously addictive J.K. Poutine featuring those salty, herby signature fries topped with braised beef & aged Ontario cheddar; and Chef Pascal Poilbout of Organic Crepes–specializing in savoury and sweet buckwheat crepes–brings his grandmother’s crepe-making tradition from a small medieval village in Bretagne, France to the MarchA�.
