Market Highlights 


Welcome to September and an abundance of fresh local vegetables and fruit. The selection is peaking right now.


If you’ve been thinking about stocking up on fruit and veggies for freezing or canning, now would be a good time.


Clayburn Comforts Soap and Body Works returns to the market. Sue produces these all-natural products at her store in historic Clayburn Village.


Also back is WigglePie Crafts. Barb crochets and knits baby clothes and other baby and infant items. You’ve been asking us where she is. Here’s your chance to welcome Barb back and shop her selection of hand-made products.


Music this week is by the JC Celebration Band with their Johnny Cash tribute.


This is the last week to get in on the draw for the portable barbeque from Blackwood Home Hardware and meat from a couple of our Saturday vendors. Entries are by a minimum donation of $1.00 to the Abbotsford Food Bank.

Greek Potatoes


8 large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges (about 6-7 wedges per potato)
4 garlic cloves, minced (more garlic is a good thing, less garlic is a no-no for this recipe)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 lemon, juiced
ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 420°F. Spray a baking sheet or shallow pan with cooking spray.

Put all the ingredients into the baking pan and season generously with salt and black pepper.

Making sure your hands are very clean, toss all the ingredients to distribute evenly. The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won't burn.

Bake for 40 minutes.

When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.

Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.
This will take about another 40 minutes.

Do not be afraid of overcooking the potatoes- they will be delicious.




                        Meanwhile, cook the green beans with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt in boiling water until tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water. Drain and pat dry. Transfer to a serving bowl, toss with the onion mixture, and sprinkle with the zest.
