Green Organic Farmers Markets … Brick Works & Riverdale Farm

Riverdale Farm Organic Farmers Market

Riverdale Farm Organic Farmers Market

Evergreen Brick Works Farmers Market

Evergreen Brick Works Farmers Market

  How many of you are shopping for your veggies at these two organic farmers markets?

The Evergreen Brick Works (off the Bayview Extension but don’t drive … take the shuttle bus from the Broadview Subway Station) is on Saturdays 8:00 am to  1:00pm. There is sooo much happening here so come out and take in the Blueberry Festival, Yoga & Meditation, The Stewardship Event, Crafts and Busker Festival as well as Garden Group Events. … The Riverdale Farm Farmers Market  (In Cabbagetown) is on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 7:00 pm. This Park and Farm are a must for everyone especially children who will love the farm animals and wading pool. Bottom line … organic is healthier and tastes better. Support your neighbourhood farmers market and make it an outing for your family , you neighbours and your four legged friends too. I started back in May going every week and bought seedling tomato plants, basil, dill and chives. I have lots of other herbs as I love to cook. The tomatoes are ripe and were delicious today alongside my home made chicken salad. The Peaches last week were heavenly. Almost everything is coming to harvest so get there, shop fresh & eat healthy.     Take Note:If you need help getting your produce home and want to support a terrific local green initiative … See Laurie Featherstone of  TwoWheelsGreenDelivery.com she will deliver with her bicycle from either market. Visit her website and blog and call her at 647-205-6496.

So you have all switched to Bullfrog Power and are buying organic and using Laurie to deliver with her bycicle. More next time about a recipe or two and how to keep your vegies fresh.

Enjoying Life, Everyday, Everywhere!

Cabbagetown SOLD in 5 days, over list, in multiple offers … Fantastic!

Ontario Street SOLD in 5 days, over list, with multiple offers!

Ontario Street SOLD in 5 days, over list, with multiples!

 Who says the Real Estate market is quiet in July and August. Lots of showing on this Cabbagetown  4 bedroom, 3 storey town home. Good homes priced at market value sell. I love a win win scenario. My buyer Ian commented does every REALTOR®  produce glossy card stock Feature Sheets with professional photography, floor plans and with it’s own website measuring visitors to every room. Fact is only a small percentage of  REALTORS® use Virtual Tours let alone create a website for every listing. Some REALTORS® are dramatically better marketers than others and the results are in the selling. I am most grateful to have 85% of my sales come from very happy referral clients. In this case Ian busted his butt getting his home ready for sale. I was happy he trusted me to suggest how. He is tonight enjoying a glass of Shiraz with his good friend and is extremely happy the sale of his home resulted the way he had hoped.  Yes a little horn tooting … but I am pumped to have worked hard and received the results for same.

 Being a REALTOR® BROKER is the best career ever!
