Forging or Foraging For Food at The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market



I like the word forging… but the correct term is foraging.. Whatever word you use come on down to the Carleton Place Market.:)

Let there be kale!  Yes,there will be KALE this weekend at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market!

Shiitakes are what is called an “entry level” mushroom that’s far more predictable than the oyster mushrooms, maitake, and garden giants he also grows. Producing them outdoors requires: a shady location, a supply of hardwood logs, a water source, and spawn to inoculate the logs in the spring. Over the course of the year, the fungus will run through the logs, colonise them, and produce mushrooms.

Majore Farm has freshly picked Shiitake mushrooms at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market.These are grown in oak logs at the farm. The are grown by Doug Majore right here in Lanark county. I had some of his mushrooms and they are delicious! Come and get some for yourself at the market, they are only in season in the spring so get them before they are gone until next year.

Kira Weiler said: These are the best mushrooms ever…we picked some up last time we were at the CP farmers market…and ate them all raw before we got home…so good!!
