Natural, organic, home-grown, and home-made, there is nothing better then being able to support the local community than by buying local at a farmer’s market. Regardless of what city I am visiting, I am always excited to visit the local farmer’s market. I love browsing the vendors and exploring the new up-and-coming foods and products. Not to mention, the endless taste- tasting at the variety of food booths. I love trying new foods and the farmers market is the perfect place to explore. I often have a hard time choosing what I want to try because the options are endless. I always want to try everything! The market I regularly visit is the Moncton Farmer’s Market in New Brunswick, Canada. Visiting the same market gives me the opportunity to try new things (and buy different products) each time I visit the market. With new vendors popping up at the market each month, I never get tired of the Moncton Farmer’s Market.
Three products I love from the Moncton Farmers Market:
Sweet Cheeks Minerals
Sylvie Doucet and her partner Sarah Perkins sell natural, smoothing, and flawless mineral make-up. Sweet Cheeks Minerals is an all natural make-up, it has 6 or less ingredients, and is made locally in New Brunswick. How much better can it get? The colour choices are endless and with products ranging from primer, concealer, eye shadow, highlighter, blusher, foundation, to bronzer, and more! They have lots of selection and the price is right. Prices start at $6 per eye shadow, while all products are under $20. My friend loved trying out the coloured eye liner! My favorite product thus far is the powder face primer; the first step to getting ready for a night out! I’ve yet to try a better make-up product, especially one that is all-natural, made locally, and with no parabens.
Bueteaful Premium Tea
If you know me then you know that I love tea! There is nothing better than a fresh cup of steeped crème de Earl Grey (loose tea of course) with steamed milk and a splash of vanilla! Yum! Bueteaful Premium Tea is a New Brunswick based company who use only high quality organic tea blends. They have dozens of creative combinations to suit the tastes of any tea drinker. Seri Weinberg, the owner of Bueteaful Premium Tea, has a wealth of knowledge of the tea industry, tea trends, and customer favorites. With unlimited options to choose from between black, green, white, roobios, herbal, and matcha teas, Bueteaful Premium Tea offer the perfect mug of steeped tea to your taste preference.
Nick the Dutch Baker
Nick and Christine Stam and their 12 children provide the highest quality of Dutch baked goods at the Moncton Farmers Market. Their sweet goodies are always freshly baked and with new selections each week. The family run business offer baked goods ranging from breads, cookies, squares, pies, protein bars, to cinnamon buns. With so many options I never know what to buy! I never get tired to eating their sweet delicacies at the Moncton Farmer’s Market. Each week, I try a new treat from their booth. My favorites include the Dutch butter cake, almond cookie, almond Dutch butter cake, and their multi-grain bread. I love it all! I can’t wait to head back to the market to try something new!
