Canada Day Pancake Breakfast

Join us on Monday, July 1 for our annual pancake breakfast at the market between 8:30 am and 10:30 am. The Wileville Fire Department will be flipping flapjacks (made scratch from our market recipe) and Servant's Heart will be serving hot coffee. We've hosted this for over 25 years. Come to the market and make this event part of your Canada Day celebration. Hopefully our pancakes will be a little more symetrical than the ones picture below. Whatever their shape, we know they'll taste great.

Our Bags Are Here!

At the start of the market season we shared with you our pledge to reduce plastic bag use in the market by 50%. Thanks for all your cooperation in helping us reach this goal. We still however have a long way to go. As we have all learned in the past months, single use plastics are ultimately going to be banned. Recycling is simply not enough. Truly, it is no sacrifice to bring your own bag to market. Our ancestors did it for centuries -- carrying their baskets to the village square or city grocer to hold their purchases. 

Anyway, in this spirit we contacted a Halifax non-profit (Prescott Group) that produces canvas bags. It's a great organization and we were happy to give them our order to produce a limited number of custom Wile's Lake Farm Market bags.

They are in the store now! They are well sewn, made of sturdy cotton canvas, and are washable. Great for groceries and big enough to hold a beach towel and a book! We have priced them at $8.95 which isn't much more than it cost us to have them made. We are so excited about these beautiful bags. We hope you like them too!

Izzy Becomes A Canadian Citizen

What a better way to spend Canada Day then be sworn in as a Canadian citizen. That's what our Izzy (baker extraordinaire) will be doing on July 1st. Congratulations Izzy! Canada is lucky to have you.
