Street Beets Nov. 14, 2015: Shallots, Market Map & Kids' Club with RDBID

Here's a heads up for all you foodies out there - Frontier Gardens has shallots! I don't know about you, but I always feel a little fancier when I use shallots instead of onions. I do love onions, but shallots are milder and won't take over the flavour of the entire dish. Also, maybe...

When the Market moves indoors, some vendors are already finished for the season. Others, however, are just starting! A few vendors have too-busy summers and/or products that sell better closer to the holidays. Rousay Station, BarnCat Designs and Frontier Gardens are good examples. Frontier...

Since this will be the last Wednesday Market of 2015, maybe we should look back on all of the great Wednesday Markets we had. They were very busy; downtown Regina never seems to get tired of us! We're rather grateful for that. The weather wasn't all bad, either. There were definitely a...

At the first Market in March, it seems unfathomable that the last day of summer - and shortly after, the last outdoor Market - will come at all. And yet, it happens every year; the summer melts away before any of us have a chance to grasp it. Now, there are exactly five outdoor Markets left...

You're looking at 630 stainless steel rings and 130 titanium scales, a.k.a. a dragonscale choker. Jennifer, from Metal Majesty, spent 5 hours meticulously interlocking said 760 pieces. She also torched the scales to give them an iridescent quality. What's the purpose of scales, anyway; do...

Are you ever shocked to find out what can be grown in Saskatchewan these days? I am, but maybe a more accurate word is “impressed”. I’m talking about things like peaches, okra and this mouse melon. The appropriate term is “Mexican sour gherkin”, but I find "mouse melon" much more intriguing....
