Old Farmer's Market (2014) Part 2

I remember when I was a little girl, if a family member visits the Farmer's Market, they usually purchase one of their Strudels. 

I enjoy Apple Strudels the most! 

Freebies? Sure I'll take one... or two! 

These are great! My favourite pot pie is the Chicken Pot Pie. I accidentally picked on the Chicken curry one time but I can be such a plain jane with my palate at times. These are great for the fall and winter. 

You see this potpie peeking out ?

You must arrive early in the morning to get samples of pot pie. Usually, there is a line up for a sample of Chicken pot pie. I've never tasted homemade pot pie nor attempted to create one yet. So I must say this is the BEST Chicken pot pie I had ever tasted!  

There is a health conscious bakery that sells pasta and breads. 

They provide samples during the summer and from time to time randomly. I have purchased a jug. I found myself diluting the cider with a lot of ice because it's pretty sweet. 

I like cheese that are smoked. These cheese ladies usually provide teenie tiny samples. Just sure you pick up the clean toothpicks to try a sample. This cheese is salty. I like to add this in Mac n Cheese when I make it out of scratch.  

Old Farmer's Market (2014) Part 1

Hello everyone!
Sorry I haven't returned for a while.
Even though things have been busy for me, I didn't forget the take pictures of some of the most memorable and delicious meals in Toronto.

Alright. So let's go into the time travel machine and set it at July 5, 2015 when the old Farmer's Market was located right in front of the St. Lawerence Market. (Now, it's located behind the St. Lawerence Market where the Green P Parking lot used to be).

It was a beautiful, bright and sunny day! 

They got some good deals on herbs and plants from time to time. 

I've entered through the garage where they sell meat and often other prepared foods like chilli. You usually can smell the aromatic fragrance of chilli in the air if you arrive early. 

So what's early? Any time before 12:00 noon is good. After that, the good stuff are sold out and the staff members are packing to leave.

For those who enjoy meat and are curious what the prices were like in 2014. 

I've heard of these somewhere from Gossip Girl or a movie.
