Easter is Here!

Last Chance to Order Easter ham, lamb, turkey, roast – whatever you need!  Please order by end of day Monday (April 18) at the latest.  Local, fresh, humanely raised on family farms – receive rave reviews every holiday.  Call 226-383-7374 or drop by the store to order.  Don`t forget that Chef Derek can also help with the fixings, and there will be lots of our famous Drunken Cranberry Sauce in store to accompany the meal.

Oh, and the boys in the back have perfected the hot cross bun……you might want to order these as quantities will be limited and they will be snapped up quickly with that aroma throughout the store!

Easter Gourmet Cupcakes

Many of you savoured these decadent treats when we brought them in for Valentine’s Day and St Patrick’s Day.  See what Brenda of “Simply Irresistible” has created for Easter.  They are gorgeous and even taste better than they look (which says a LOT)!  Handmade with the best ingredients and beautifully presented – a delicious and gorgeous gift for those beyond the chocolate bunny.

Italian 101 Cooking Class

Scheduled for Wednesday, April 27 from 7-9pm – this one sold out within a day when we last offered it!  Received rave reviews – sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.  Call 226-383-7374 or drop by to sign up.

Save the Date!

We are celebrating our 3rd birthday on Saturday, May 7.  We have some suppliers lined up for demos and of course we’ll have some of Chef Derek’s new creations (and some old favourites too) out for sampling.  Details to come.

Easter in Downtown Fergus

Hippity hippity hop to downtown Fergus on Easter Saturday (April 23)!  From noon till 4pm many of our downtown retailers are offering fun activities and treats for the whole family.  The Fergus Community Market is offering live entertainment and egg decorating.  Make Easter cookies at Fergie’s Fine Foods.  Don’t forget I Love Chocolate’s annual Easter colouring contest – there will be a colouring station set up for any last minute entries (and of course there will be treats there too!).  Roxanne’s is offering kids crafts.  There are treats and activities at many other downtown retailers such as Big Monkey Little Monkey, Cherry Hill Entertainment, and of course Fraberts Fresh Food – just look for the Easter balloons out front of participating stores!

Good Luck Frazer!

One of the first members of our Fraberts family is moving on.  Most of you will remember Frazer deVries – the handsome young lad working alongside Chef Derek in the kitchen who was always there to help.  He was a valuable and enjoyable part of the team and we will miss him dearly.  We wish him luck and happiness as he moves on with his life and career.
