Good morning my lovelies and welcome to week #35 of the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up!
It’s official – we’ve finally managed to find a new CSA in Toronto that lines up with our ideals! After breaking up with our original one in Victoria, I was doubtful
of finding one here that could fulfill all our fresh food needs. However, after much searching, I discovered Cultivate Toronto
– local, seasonal, organic and within 15 minute transit distance for pick up. They get all their produce from volunteer back yards, front yards and the roof top of a food shop here called The Big Carrot
.That being said, John and I just decided last night not to go with them. It’s a tough decision but we’re going to go the farmer’s market route this season. I love a good CSA, but it’s a lot of money up front and I’d really like to meet some of the farmers around here. It’s gonna be good – and I’ll be feeling better about the food we’re supporting, procuring and eating. So stoked! It’s gonna be a good growing season, I can just feel it!
As I collect some farmer’s market treasures, you’d better believe I’ll be sharing my fruitful finds with you! Now… Onto the link up!
