Fraberts Fresh Food for Thought – May 2010

Ontario Asparagus has Arrived!

We just brought in the first asparagus of the season – the taste of spring!  We’ll have fiddleheads by the weekend and local spinach is just around the corner…..  It’s a great time of year!

 Thank You for Making Fraberts “Small Business of the Year”!

We were thrilled to receive this honour from the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce at last week’s Awards of Excellence gala.  The theme of the gala was “Outstanding in our Field” so I enjoyed dressing in my old Aggie gear to celebrate.  Held on Earth Day, it was a fitting tribute to the wonderful farmers that make our job easy by providing delicious food for us to sell. 

Thank you for making us Centre Wellington’s Small Business of Year!

Mother’s Day – May 9

Treat your mom to a homemade meal – with or without Chef Derek’s help (we won’t tell!).  He can help with his popular lasagnes, quiche, salads, etc.  We will be selling flowers for your mom – cut or in planters – grown locally by the good folks from the Elmira Produce Auction Cooperative.  We are open Mother’s Day Sunday just in case you leave it till the last minute….

Fraberts Turns Two!

More details on our birthday celebration to come …..

 Happy Spring!
