Sweet Potatoe Johnny

John Chabot of St. Catharines wanted to produce something using sweet potatoes.  He loves sweet potatoes and will rant about all the benefits of the bright orange vegetable.  Two years ago, John decided to create a veggie burger using sweet potatoes.  This was an instant hit as witnessed by many who line up at his booth when he is cooking veggie burgers for hungry shoppers.  He has them available in frozen packages too for shoppers to take home and cook at their leisure.  But veggie burgers were just the beginning.  Now Sweet Potatoes Johnny incorporates his favourite vegetable into baked goods such as waffles, brownies, muffins and breads, and into frozen meals which include lasagna, chili, burritos, soups, and of course burgers.  Asked why he is so keen on sweet potatoes and John is quick to point out that the vegetable is high in Vitamin A, calcium, fibre and iron.  “They are good for you and my customers wanted new products so I just expanded my line” according to Johnny.  He even makes his own sauces which include chipotle sauce and a honey Dijon sauce.

Thimbleberry Farm

August is blackberry month – not the phone, the tender little blackberries that are now available at Blackberry Bob’s booth. “I got the title of BlackBerry Bob from Anna Olson who was featuring his blackberries during one of her TV cooking shows” says McGough, who has used the title ever since.  Bob and Lucie McGough have been with the Grimsby market for three years and enjoy the interaction they have with their customers.  They have been farming in Beamsville since 1977 on 8 acres, of which 2 acres are devoted to blackberries.  All of the blackberries are grown organically, no pesticides are used.  

Trillium Hill Greenhouses

You may have noticed the brilliant array of colours along Main Street at Christie Street.  This burst of colour is due to Trillium-Hill Greenhouses of Grimsby.  Located at 471 Main Street West since about 1998, they began their greenhouse business in Jordan in 1993.  All the plants offered at both the Grimsby Farmers’ Market and at their greenhouses are started and grown on site.  Donna Magalas, who you will meet at the market each week, is the creative force behind the beautiful planters and hanging baskets.  Her natural artistic abilities are well displayed in the assorted planters that are offered each week.  Trillium-Hill brings annual plantings, some vegetable and herb plants and fig trees to the market, however the greenhouse has a huge offering of perennials, trees and shrubs as well.  The knowledgeable staff at the Grimsby Market location is part of the reason that Trillium-Hill is a very popular site at the market.  

Viniki Farm and Greenhouses

Harish Patel joined the market this year during the pre-season at St. George’s Ukrainian church.  Viniki Farm and Greenhouses is located in Niagara-on-the-lake and this is Harish’s first year at the Grimsby market, but not his first year at farm markets in general.  Harish bought his 11 acre farm about 5 years ago.  With the addition of two greenhouses on the property, he is able to offer a wide variety of vegetables, plants and some lilies.  Most of his vegetable products are available right now including peas, zucchini, pea shoots, buck wheat lettuce, spinach, spring mix, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes and garlic.  To this he adds fruiting bushes such as raspberry, black and blue berries, figs and strawberries.  Fruit will be next, just waiting for the season to come for apples, pears, plums, sour cherries and a few table grapes. Harish also has herbs, both dried and fresh and his basil, thyme, oregano and tarragon flavours the air around his booth.
