Street Beets Nov. 21, 2015: Kids' Club with RDBID, Herbs, Lentils, & Market Map
Did you miss out on the collaborative mural with Regina Downtown BID (RDBID) last Saturday? Don't worry - RDBID is back for this week's RFM Kids' Club! Kids can add to the mural as well as make a paper reindeer to take home. Big kids are welcome, too, because apparently "adult colouring" is a cool thing to do these days. :)
Craving soups and stews in this weather? Add extra nutrients, like protein and iron, by adding lentils. Don't know how to cook with lentils? No problem - Hazel and David of Pure T Organics have recipe cards already prepared (as you can see on the right of the photo). Of course, lentils don't have to be made into soup; they have recipes for other things, like salad, as well. And Pure T Organics doesn't just offer lentils; they also have peas, barley, spelt and more. Visit David on Saturday to see his full line of products and the recipes provided.
This photo of Pure T Organics products was posted on Instagram and received some love from Heather (@wildflower.12):
"The best pulse products around! I've special ordered all the way from Nova Scotia! I'm originally from Regina, I only study in the maritimes. One of my professors does quite a bit of research on pulses and I had brought him a bag of Pure T Organics pulse mix and he is now obsessed with it. I'm happy to introduce my hometown's local goods to the rest of the country!"
Including this Saturday, there are only 5 MARKETS LEFT in 2015! Here's a bit of what you can expect on Saturday, Nov. 21:
these dried herbs & spices from @millersbygonefarm
veggies from Floating Gardens, Heliotrope Farms, Pusch Bros., and Frontier Gardens
frozen berries from Loon Creek Saskatoons
Earthy Artisan hypertufa pots
NEW vendors: Reem's Kitchen and Amarah Elizabeth
40 vendors in attendance!
CLICK HERE to view the Market Map. Keep in mind that SalayView Farm will be retiring from RFM as soon as they run out of cheese; you may want to stock up sooner rather than later. The Wa Wa Shriners will be hosting a pancake breakfast in the basement during the Market. Breakfast is from 8 am to noon. $6.00 includes pancakes, sausage and coffee or juice.
See you at Market!
