Our Year-Round Market on the South Shore

Welcome to the Lunenburg Farmers' Market

"As soon as you walk through the front door of the Market, the smell of omelettes cooking quickly finds its way to your nose followed by the eye-opening aroma of freshly brewed local coffee. Your taste buds begin to tingle with the thought of tasting this home cooking made with love. Your eyes open wide at the sight of so many vibrant colours of the fresh produce, baked goods, artisans crafts, jams, jellies and more.

Your attention turns to the welcoming sound of chatter, laughter and mingling of happy customers enjoying the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are many vendors offering not only their goods and food items but a welcoming hello and friendly conversation. There are people of all ages and diverse backgrounds, all sharing the same experience. What a truly delightful place!" ~ Louise D, Market Visitor

Recipe of the Week

Lemon Mint Popsicles by Elisabeth Bailey

These bright treats are perfect for the hot days of summer. Use any edible member of the mint family to your taste—including rosemary, lavender, basil, lemon balm, bergamot, and of course, all mints! If desired, substitute 1 cup rhubarb juice for the lemon juice, reducing the water to 1 1/4 cups. Many thanks to Susan Larder at Foraged Florals for the inspiration!

 

Ingredients

½ cup sugar

1 ¾ cup water, divided

½ cup lemon juice, fresh or bottled

½ cup freshly chopped packed leaves from any mint family herb

Directions

Combine ½ cup sugar with ¾ cup water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture turns from cloudy to clear. Remove from heat and cool.

Combine cooled syrup, remaining water, lemon juice, and leaves. Cover and allow leaves to steep for 30 minutes. Strain out leaves, stir, and pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze overnight.
