August 13 Map & Biggest Market Ever!
Tomorrow, August 13, will be the largest market RFM has ever had! A total of 89 vendors will be set up, filling the Plaza and 3/4 of Scarth Street! So far, 2016 has been very good to us. We've had (mostly) very pleasant weather, eager vendors and many loyal customers. We're beyond grateful!
The market is so big tomorrow that many Plaza-dwellers will be on Scarth instead. Here's a list of the 22 awesome vendors that will be placed along Scarth Street:
Ally's Specialty Baking
Averlis Foods (spicy peanut dip!)
Belle Plaine Colony
Golden Prairie Wild Boar
Hi Low Angus
Inspired by Beads
J9's Tiny Farm
Kim's Fresh Fruit
Mother Hubbard's Cupboard
Prairie Bee Meadery
Reem's Kitchen (she's back!)
Rosie the Flower Truck
Saltine Baking Co.
The Healthy Grind
Lumsden Duck Derby
SK Science Centre
Wa Wa Shrine
Don't forget to pick up your market t-shirt! Articulate Ink designed and printed them for us on quality American Apparel black shirts. Sizes range from small to double extra large, with limited amounts available. Get to the RFM Info Tent (located at the centre of the Plaza) early tomorrow morning for the widest selection. Shirts are $25 each.
Articulate Ink makes a lot more than market t-shirts, you can see for yourself tomorrow! They'll be set up on Scarth St. with a variety of printed clothing and accessories.
If you've been missing The Healthy Grind, miss them no more – they're back! The Healthy Grind makes 100% Saskatchewan whole wheat flour from white wheat grown and milled on their farm. White wheat is milder than red wheat (typically used to make whole wheat flour) but the health benefits are the same. You can use The Healthy Grind flour in any of your home-baked goods. Expect a pleasant nutty flavour and the desire to buy more!
Corn is ready! Southland Colony, Spring Creek Gardens and other veggie producers will have some tomorrow. Aside from growing it yourself, farmers' market corn on the cob is the freshest you can get. I guess the arrival of corn means that autumn is on its way, but I'm not sad. It also means pumpkin pie is just around the corner!
Back in after short or long breaks: Golden Prairie Wild Boar, Summer Hartsfeld Jewelry, Hi Low Angus, and Reem's Kitchen.
Food trucks: Baba's Food Spot, Bon Burger, Nacho Fiesta, Prairie Smoke, and Wheelie Good Coffee (beverages only).
See you at market!
