i have been visiting local organic markets that pop up all over the city in our “summer” months, so a friend of mine suggested i come visit her local market in the park…… Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market
a little smaller then i had expected but was up under the canopy of the trees closer to dundas..giving it a small town market feel………..incredible looking produce, fresh herbs and honey, flowers and a couple baked goods booths. i bought some leek pesto, grass fed free range beef..from Twin Creeks Organice Farm…the farmer, Gerald, was a friendly man answering our questions and even provides pre orders on large orders …. say for a backyard bbq party….. my friend DEElicious bought some lamb that we had later that evening..
but the last booth we attended….Greensfield Organic Farm ……with THE most colourful display of veggies…i was drawn to the table and bought me some beets
……….too bad about the rotten customer service skills of the woman running the Greensfield booth. i had already purchased my beets and was rather offended by her words and attitude so just walked off…but ….i will not return nor tell others to go and purchase their products. in fact i will tell others about the rudeness and encourage others to NOT shop there. yes that is what poor customer service begets….and an email to the farmer themselves…….there are far too many markets around for that kind of service to be okay..and is it not about community and all? maybe her community doesn’t include all people.
too bad as the candy cane beets were devine ):
but the night was not complete…
