Rennet, culture, salt, and wholesome Saskatchewan sheep milk; that's what's in Craibstone Creamery feta cheese. It's real food made by real people, and it's good for you, too. Many of Craibstone Creamery cheeses are based on Scottish family recipes, but the flavour of each batch may vary. This is...

Posted in food trucks / market news

Plenty of new products have been popping up throughout the summer, but few are quite as fascinating as propolis – glue of the honey bee hive. Bees use propolis in many ways. Among other applications, they may use it to smooth rough surfaces, seal cracks, cover holes, or even envelope...

Corn season is in full swing! You'll find some on the tables of almost all of our vegetable producers. On the other hand, there's a vegetable you'll find at only one table – Brussels sprouts. The fascinating thing about Brussels sprouts is (besides their polarizing effect) the way they grow....

August 24 Map & Saskatchewan Apples!

Posted in food trucks / Market under the Stars / market news

Did you know crab apples aren't the only type of apples that grow in Saskatchewan? They're not! Most varieties of apples grown here are smaller and more tart than the varieties that grow in places like BC. While they aren't necessarily as sweet, I'd say apples from our province are more...

We're still in saskatoon berry season! If you're looking to buy berries, make sure you get to the market EARLY tomorrow. It's a popular item, naturally, and vendors will likely sell out of everything they bring. You can find saskatoons at Country Breeze Farms, Loon Creek Saskatoons, Rocky...
