market update

I just thought I would post a bit of an update here on the blog. We have been tweeting and facebooking a bit more lately and the blog has been suffering a bit of neglect I am afraid. 

Tomorrow is the first day for us at The Old Strathcona Farmers Market! For those who don't know, this market is huge in Edmonton and is our only large, year-round market. St. Albert and City Market are perhaps bigger in the summer months. So, now we are marketing our flour products at Old Strathcona and City Market on 104th on Saturdays. This should keep us busy milling and packaging flour for a day or two during the week on top of our other customers' orders. 

Currently at market we are carrying: Hard Red Spring Wheat flour, Soft White Wheat Flour, Golden Flax, Rye flour, Wheat/Rye Pancake Mix and Wheat Berries.

At any rate, we really appreciate feedback from our customers. Please log in and comment with your recipes and comments if you have had the chance to purchase flour from us or if you have any questions about our farm or our flour!

  3. First the bad news. City Market, in City Hall, is declining badly. Less and less customers each week and yesterday was the worst day yet. Still though, it is not being advertised enough...we know several regular customers of City Market on 104th who had no clue we were at City Hall. I guess it will pick up when we more outdoors.

    Old Strathcona Market lived up to its reputation of being busy. It was packed from start to finish and we sold well enough. Perhaps not quite as well as I had hoped, but it was good. I think some time in these busy markets will help with our exposure and make the sales steadily increase?
