Please note this page is not updated daily, rather it’s a general overview of where the season is as at and what’s available. If you’d like to double-check on availability, due to poor weather (rain) and want a current daily or hourly availability it’s always best to call the store.

It’s hard not to get excited for asparagus. When asparagus is in season it means the meal possibilities are endless. Whether you’re cooking inside or grilling it outside, served with seasoning, cheese or wrapped in prosciutto, asparagus means the start of enjoying all the good things we grow locally.

We source fresh, locally grown asparagus from our friends at Sunshine Farms in Thamesville when it’s in season from early May to early June.

Sweet Cherries

Jul
Sweet Cherries
$9.50/2 L basket
In Season

We love sweet cherries but they don’t love our area. The winters are too cold near London (or around the city). For this reason we turn to our friends at Delhaven Orchards in Blenheim for fresh Ontario grown sweet cherries. We receive a fresh load in daily from Delhaven and you can taste the difference. Sweet cherry season usually starts near the end of June and lasts for roughly three weeks.

We do not sell fresh sour cherries but pails of sweet and sour cherries are available midway through the cherry season in 10 pound pails. As we do not grow cherries here, pick your own is not available.

In Season

If you love cherries and want to enjoy them all year long there is no better way then to get yourself a pail or two (or five) of freshly picked and pitted cherries. We offer pails of sweet or sour cherries that come with pits and stems removed in 10 pound pails. If you prefer your cherries fresh and not frozen (it’s easier to transfer into smaller containers), we take orders at the beginning of the season. You can request cherries with or without sugar. We do carry frozen pails through the season and into winter.

Our pails of cherries come from Delhaven Orchards in Blenheim where they’re grown. You can call us at 519-461-1416 to place your order for pails through the first three weeks of July.

* Sorry, pailed cherries are sold out for the year.
