Posted in food trucks / market news

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...

Posted in food trucks / market news

If you haven't noticed, it's now October and things are changing at the Market. We're getting ready to move indoors, comfort food is appearing on vendors' tables and vendors with summer produce are turning in for the winter. At the same time, there are a few vendors that are just arriving....

Street Beets Sept. 26, 2015: 5 OUTDOOR MARKETS LEFT, Market Map & Summer Gems

Posted in food trucks / market news

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...

It's not a trick! I did not take this picture in June so I could post it in September; these are actually September strawberries! If you can believe it, Southland Colony has fresh strawberries currently available. They are grown outside (not in a greenhouse) and the cooler temperatures...

Street Beets Sept. 16th, 2015: Market Map, Brussels Sprouts & Pumpkin Pie

Posted in food trucks / market news

Recently, I've been amazed at the number of social media posts by our customers on the topic of Brussels sprouts. I'm amazed because I thought Brussels sprouts were still among the group of green veggies that seem to be generally disliked. And yet, photos of wide-smiling customers clutching...

Posted in market news / organic

2015 marks 40 years for RFM, and only one vendor has seen all 40. Rose Fishley has been here since the start of it all. She's been a reliable vendor, a fair saleswoman and even a forward-thinking Board member. Years have come and gone. Good growing seasons passed by along with the bad. New...

Street Beets Sept. 9th, 2015: Cheang's Sinofood, Farm Eggs & Vendor Map

Posted in food trucks / market news

Cheang's Sinofood joined the RFM just this year, and is already known for having quality, homemade Chinese food. We new it would be good even without tasting, as Mr. Cheang's sister, Sunshine, is part owner of The Green Spot Cafe (home of Regina's best cinnamon buns). When Mr. Cheang...

Posted in food trucks / market news

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....

Posted in food trucks / market news

It's already September and RFM is still going strong. Many think that a farmers' market is strictly a summer event, but not for us! We're out on the Plaza until October 10th and then we move indoors, at 2065 Hamilton St., from October 17th to December 19th.  I call these summery little...

Posted in food trucks / market news

Everything at the Crave Food Truck is awesome, but one dish in particular is a stand-out for me. It's called Street Benny, a mobile-kitchen-friendly update on the traditional eggs benedict. Street Benny is like eggs benedict's rebellious teenage grandchild; it's a badass scotch egg, a stick in...

Some products at RFM are very familiar, others not so much. Need an example? Jamaican Callaloo (pictured) is one such product; I bet you haven't heard of it until now! This leafy green grows quickly and, before you know it, can be 8' tall. It has large leaves and tender stems that are...

Squash Blossoms. Such a delicacy, with such a short season. Have you ever had them? If not, they taste like a gentler version of zucchini or squash. They can be stuffed with soft cheese, battered and fried, pickled, or chopped and added to recipes. Hosting a dinner party? There's no better way...
