To market, to market, to buy a fat pig. Home again, home again, jiggedy jig!
I love local markets. Fresh, seasonal, local produce at affordable prices are impossible to resist!
|Ontario apples - there's nothing better!|
Herridge's Fruit Market is a proud family-run business that has been around for 75 years. Surrounded by the Herridge family farm, the market is an ideal place to find the freshest local produce at excellent prices.
|Yum! Swiss Chard!|
For our first purchase at the market, we bought enough vegetables to last us a week, and two huge baskets of apples (McIntosh and Mutsu) for under $40.00. We're still working on the apples but there aren't many left. I've made apple sauce for a pork roast dinner, and Big-A has been bringing a Mac with him to school each day. The Mutsu's are giant - we call them "sharing apples" and I've been bringing them to work with some cheddar cheese - a yummy 3pm snack! We definitely got our money's worth!
|A variety of fresh market veggies!|
All of the other veggies purchased were extremely fresh, lasted long in my refrigerator, and tasted so good with each dinner!
Along with amazingly fresh, locally grown produce, I also love any excuse to get outside and enjoy the fresh air with my boys. Walking around looking at the flowers and planters was a lot of fun. It's a perfect outing with little ones, just long enough to keep their attention. I already can't wait to go back for more apples and Swiss Chard, and maybe some festive Christmas planters too! If you live in Mississauga or the surrounding area, visit Herridge's Fruit Market and enjoy the fresh Ontario produce they have to offer!
