Spring – can you smell it? February 25, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tracy @ 4:03 pm

I was just outside – and smelled it – faint – but there – Spring – my straining ears heard a bird chirping too – perhaps a bit early – but definately the worst of winter is done.
So we look forward to our upcoming lineup of shows and events…

For MARCH BREAK we have the Lindsay Springfest …. at the Lindsay Exhibition grounds…. March 15th to March 20th – looking for something to do over the break? how about an indoor fair? we’ll be there – with our standard Fair Fare… along with some extra goodies like bagles, fudge, pop, chips, muffins and and and…
did I mention coffee?

April 30th we will be at Peterborough’s Green Expo – with coffee, tea, cider and chocolate….

May 7th is the Port Hope Green Expo – dipping our toes in the Port Hope village and possibly the Port Hope Farmers market for the summer….

May 14th – for the Everything Equine show – a true Equine drive through – fabulous and fantastic… I just love this event –

Of course we will be attending the Wednesday downtown Peterborough market again this year – and the Oshawa farmer market as well… and of course we would never leave the Peterborough Saturday farmer market either…

got an event you’d like to see us at? let me know…. and I’ll check it out

have a WONDERFUL weekend!


The Cafe run is coming to a close February 13, 2011

Well I am amazed and very very pleased…. our trial cafe run was a huge success! We extended our stay twice… and we’ll be leaving Portage Place at the end of February 2011.

As a roaster, I need my roasting equipment with me, and it just isn’t realistic in a mall. Even if we could vent the roasters, the space is too small…. I can honestly say it will be hard to go… the people were so fantastic, and kind… faithful and consistant…

I thank everyone for coming out – I can honestly say I am actively looking for a home to call my own… actively looking for an old building like a church or a school…. in the Peterborough area.. (so sad that we couldn’t buy the Lawnbowling club)

Hopefully I will be able to find something soon…. and we will have a permanent location to call our own.

In the meantime, we are booking our 2011 events – farmers markets and shows …. so you will see us where you are…. Peterborough Farmers market – Wednesday downtown market, Oshawa Center market, Everything Equine show in Uxbridge…. as well as our growing list of stores that carry our products… the newest is Pastry Peddler in Millbrook… we are also looking at the possibility of a farmer market in Port Hope…

Thanks to everyone…. can’t wait to announce our new bricks and mortar location!


Valentines day is coming – are you ready? February 3, 2011

Leah and Paulina have done it again with new and creative wonders for the shop – looking for a neat one of a kind Valentines day gift? This just might be what you’re looking for – hand crafted, affordible and sustainable… very very cool. Now – rumour has it that Katey has some new soaps on the way too…

And in honour of one of our favourite chocolate holidays – Chocolate Sumatra makes it’s 2 week debut this Saturday – for a limited time only… I just love chocolate Sumatra…. mmmm …. made with REAL organic chocolate, organic vanilla and of course, organic coffee… don’t be fooled with chemically flavoured coffee… this is the REAL deal…
