VENDOR PROFILE

Rescued fruit finds a good home at the Market with Fruits of Sherbrook! Foster your green thumb and spice up your kitchen this summer with an indoor herb garden courtesy of Herb & Co.

Fruits of Sherbrook started in the fall of 2010 and are a not-for-profit society with a mission to use fruits not being used by homeowners. They rescue unused urban fruit and turn them into gourmet preserves from jellies, to jams, to sauces and condiments. Although local fruits are not truly organic, they generally are untreated, meaning no pesticides or chemical fertilizers and have grown with rainwater.  They also work with produce providers from British Columbia to make use of bruised and some might say “unsellable” or “undesirable” fruits.

Herb & Co is a new name to the Market but helmed by an old friend. Susan of Molly’s Eats decided to take a new angle at the market and focus on fresh herbs and their powerful flavours. She also uses her fresh herbs for a small collection of delicious baked good. Keep an eye out for her nut free pesto and garlic parmesan buns that are a nice addition to any meal. If you too are hankering for a indoor herb garden then chat up Susan at this week’s market.
