Moss Street Market, Thanksgiving

Monday is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and we have shopped at the Moss Street Market for many of the ingredients of the meal. Moss Street Market is walking distance from our home and we go there pretty well every weekend that it is open, which is about half the year. It is only open on Saturdays and its best to get there near opening time at 10 AM, so this has become one of the main things that defines our weekend routine. We get organic produce and pies as our main purchases, but sometimes some bread or mini donuts or canned goods. It all depends on what catches our eye, and what we need that week.

So, today’s blog is to give thanks to the vendors that we shop at most weeks. Below is a veritable cornucopia of pictures of the produce from these stalls – I hope you like food pictures as much as I do. Even if you don’t, check out the last picture – pie to make you go back week after week after week.

I asked the vendors  if I could photograph their products, except one that was not at the stall when I took pictures. They were so nice and agreeable; one gave me a tart when I finished, another gave me back more change than necessary for my purchases. And it was I getting in their way, or the way of their customers, not the other way around. Great people. The market also has music and some weekends they are musicians that we know, as happened this week, when we found Alison Vardy playing hammer dulcimer with someone whose first name we did not catch, so we shall call him Mr. Johnson. Alison is my wife’s harp teacher. We always run across friends at the market, which means shopping can take a lot longer than you might think.

You can find out more about Moss Street Market vendors here on their website. Their musicians are listed here. You can follow them on Facebook if you want.

So here are the pictures of stalls we routinely shop at, grouped by vendor, sometimes with a note. Thanks to all of you for fantastic healthy environment friendly food. You are all appreciated in so many ways.

Every week we give Terry at Sweet Flower a pie plate, and the next week it is filled with pie. Usually sour cherry which is a favourite, but this week it is, you guessed it, pumpkin. Can hardly wait.

Edit: I have removed a large number of photos as I am nearing my WP limit. If there is one you were linked to and want it back, let me know.

    • Hi lolabees – welcome to my blog, its nice to have you here. That is a very good market, it is about to go dormant for the winter, sadly. But that makes us appreciate it even more in the summer. I was really enjoying the coloured buildings in your blog today – such different colours than in Victoria (Canada).
