What happens when like-minded business' get together and start talking?
Introducing the new HORTON BREAKFAST SANDWICH combo! The folks from Farmgate Markets, Frisa Farms, and Coffee Cultures have cooked up a new, fresh idea to serve breakfast at the market. Farmgate's will be making breakfast sandwiches using their bacon, eggs from Frisa Farms, and coffee from Coffee Cultures to make this combo - all for $5. Or, if you prefer, you can have it with juice instead. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this combo goes back to the Market for promotional funds!
(pssst - Farmgate Markets will be our vendor feature next week)

We will be asking you - the consumer - to participate in these events by sharing your ideas, your recipes, and your best practices for all kinds of activies from canning & preserving to growing a really big pumpkin.
Look for the customer appreciation draw at a different location throughout the market each Saturday. Follow the 'Foodland Ontario' green and white balloons. This past weeks winner was Lily Lang - Congratulations!
