Were you hoping for more meat options at the Coop? We're now taking special orders for products from the Ferme Valens.
We've received our organic seedlings for the summer!! Annie and Dean from La Ferme de l'Ile have grown a huge selection of beautiful young plants, ranging from herbs and lettuces to heirloom cherry, paste and beefsteak tomatoes. We also have some organic strawberry plants, raspberry bushes and blueberry bushes from Urban Seedling. We'll be receiving some additional seedlings throughout the summer so don't give up if you didn't find the plant you were looking for at first blush.
It’s a great opportunity to come to the store and meet the farmers, get culinary tips and stock up on delicious fresh local products. In the spring and summer, the Ferme de l'Ile will set up every Thursday from 3pm to 7pm (starting June 16th) and La Récolte de la Rouge are there every Saturday from 10am to 1pm (starts June 10th).
Meanwhile, any day of any season is a good day to come to the Co-op and stock up on all of your fresh favourites! This year, you'll find produce from les Jardins d'En Haut, les Jardins de la Résistance, les Jardins Érable and the Vergers McMillan.
On April 24, as we do every year, we will celebrate Earth Day. This year there we will have a barbecue outside from 12pm to 5pm. There will be a march with giant puppets, which will start at the Coop at 1 p.m. Then Choral NDG Singing Circle will demonstrate their talent just in front of the Coop. This event is not to be missed, starting from 12 p.m.
