Headed down the 401 this weekend for a visit with the family. My Mum mentioned the Windsor Downtown Farmers' Market had opened the week before, obviously I needed to check it out. And it was good! I'm so happy to see the city taking steps with these types of initiatives. Windsor is in close proximity to some great agricultural towns like Harrow, Leamington, Kingsville just to name a few. It seems crazy that local, organic produce is kind of hard to get your hands on living in the city. I was less than impressed to see Remark Farms selling little to no organic and hardly any local. Their kale was from the USA mid June! But regardless the market had lots of fresh, local goods to chose from. I bought basil, mini cucs, fragrant garlic scrapes and some great natural deodorant from Faerhaven which I'm loving. Everyone was so friendly and ready to chat, it was such a nice way to spend the morning with my gorgeous Mother, I'll be back!
