One of my favourite things about working at the Haney Farmers Market this year is that every Saturday I have an amazing opportunity to get the first glance at all of the bounty that our local farmers are serving up to the public. Whether it be fresh green onions, crisp kale, sweet carrots or rhubarb, guaranteed the local farmers are serving up the most amazing and organic fruits and veggies you have ever seen. You truly can’t underestimate the value of fresh & local ingredients because they really do make all of the difference in your home cooking and baking.
Because of the gorgeous weather that we in BC have been graced with this spring, the last few weeks our Farmers Market has been full of farmers from the Okanagan offering up a loot of the most delicious early tree fruits you can imagine. This week, the wonderful Okanagan farmers had fresh cherries that were just so beautiful, they could make your mouth water just by looking at them for too long… A-ma-zing.
