Forget the 100-mile diet. Urban farmer, Russ Ohrt, farms vegetables in backyards around the Locke Street neighbourhood and then shares the bounty each week at the market.
Richardson’s Farm and Market
For farmers James and Kirsten Richardson, farming is a family affair. They grow a variety of fruits and vegetables (most notably strawberries and corn) and they boil their own maple syrup too.
Concession Road Garden
People have been coming together to break bread for centuries. So for us, bread is intrinsically linked to the feelings of community, nourishment and heritage.
We’re in the business of making people fall in love with sourdough bread all over again. We put time and patience into every crumb so you, our dear customers, can taste and feel the difference.
Our sourdough bread is a labour of love. We combine a slow fermentation process (12 to 36 hours) with high levels of hydration (83%+) to produce nourishing loaves that are scrumptious AND ultra-digestible. We pride ourselves on our use of organic and heirloom grains to uphold quality and great taste.
Our dynamic Pastry Program shares the same core values as our approach to bread. Across an exciting menu of sweet or savoury offerings, we pride ourselves in making everything from scratch. From fruit to flour, we’re committed to supporting local agriculture and using only the best ingredients we can get our hands on.
Escarpment Kombucha Co.
Escarpment Kombucha Co. is owned and operated by partners Drew and Robyn. We craft small-batch fermented tea from locally sourced, organic, and foraged ingredients out of The Kitchen Collective, a non-profit commercial kitchen on King St. E. in central Hamilton. Year-round flavours include Blackberry Sumac, Blueberry Mint, Lemon Ginger, Raspberry Lavender and Sour Cherry Cedar, and we change it up each month with seasonal specials like Cranberry Spruce Tip and Rhubarb Rose.
