Welcome to Old 86 Farmer’s Market

Last Saturday was a beautiful day to go for a tour, so I loaded up the Torrent and set out to visit the Old 86 Farmer’s Market near Molesworth and see just what all the fuss was about.  I was delighted to find an impressive collection of local preserves and products including

  • relishes and salsas from MacGougan Manor in Seaforth
  • local maple syrup from the Drudge Family* next door
  • Green Meat Market & Abbatoir’s frozen meat products
  • Hayter Farm frozen turkey products
  • jams and vinegars from Glenn Farms of Listowel
  • goat cheese of Wroxeter and
  • packaged gluten free mixes and bean products from Full of Beans in Bornholm.

I couldn’t resist buying some delicious local hand-made goat cheese and settled on a mild Gouda Chili from Gordon’s Goat Dairy operated by Gordon & Bethany Edgar of Wroxeter.  Their website indicates they are makers of hard-to-find unique cheeses which include nineteen unique flavourful brands of harvarti, gouda, cheddar and goatserella.

I had heard about Full of Beans from the owner who I met at a Food Symposium in Stratford last fall.  I try to stick with a gluten free diet so was delighted to find these products so close to home.    I’ll let you know in a future column how the Spicey Carrot Cake and the maple baked beans turned out.
