Let's Do Lunch!

Well, it’s almost been a month since the Fieldstone Vintage Market and we’re still marveling at the lovely day that was had by all.  We’re doing it all over again on December 3rd, if you haven’t heard already!  In the meantime, if you haven’t stopped by the EcoDairy lately, you really should.  It such a great place to go on a sunny and even rainy afternoon, especially with the kids.  The Nutrifoods Marketfeatures a wide assortment of gourmet and organic groceries and produce including their Vitala milk, eggs and yogurt.

Another reason you might want to stop by is to enjoy the newly expanded bistro where you can enjoy their amazing sandwiches and sip a Starbuck’s Latte. They have “kid-friendly” sandwiches too!  While you’re enjoying your lunch, the kids can run around in the field with the animals behind the market or quietly keep themselves busy in the children’s corner.  It’s no-fuss dining at it’s best.  Just in case you were interested, the bistro area was Birch + Bird‘s very first design project which we’re quite thrilled about.   And if you are still dreaming of Fieldstone, you can browse through many of our treasures that are available for purchase at Nutrifoods.  They also have guided tours, a learning centre, and an animal exhibit.  It’s a great way to spend a quiet afternoon in our city in the country.
