MANAGER PICKS:

We’re expecting a beautiful sunny Thursday this week so when you arrive at the market stop by Nice Pops and pick up one of their seasonal popsicles – they’re all good but if you get a chance to try the hibiscus mint strawberry, it won’t disappoint! Next, look for Spread Em Kitchen as they make their first appearance downtown with their delicious vegan dips – you can usually sample a few but be sure to try the cream cheese style Chives and Garlic! Finally, make dinner an easy one this week and pick up a pie from Chef Enrick, he has many to choose from including Tourtière Pork, Beef Bourguignon, or my favourite the veggie pot pie!
