Well, the first thing is–Ken Strangway was sporting glasses last weekend at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market–and I just didn’t recognize him. I called him the mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn of mystery. Have you ever thought he might be another Carleton Place superhero in disguise, and NOT only The King of Roti’s?

How about a chicken and potato roti for lunch? Don’t know what that is? Well let me tell ya sista’- in some parts of the world people line up for miles for these things.

So I hear Ken gives smiles and the occasional jokes for free along with the food he serves at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market– but seriously folks– try and get down to the bottom of it about this superhero stuff. I think he just might be one! Get your chance each Saturday to check out his food at our local market and shake hands with the mystery man of Carleton Place.

Superheros and Wonder Woman at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market? Who knew? What is going on down there? I suggest you check it out and get back to me. I found them once mingling on Bridge Street– so it looks like they are hanging out on Beckwith Street now!

Don’t forget Ken is also the force behind Lanark Laughs.

Next week is the greatest comedy competition in Carleton Place. If you haven’t reserved yet, hurry seats are going fast! Call 613 253 7400 to reserve!

Some days it’s not my circus, and definitely not my monkeys. You know the feeling—today was going great until people—- yadda yadda yadda. A few weeks ago I found the perfect drama free zone at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market. I mean you can’t keep a clean reputation hanging out continually with messy people. Wait? What?

As I leaned against the wall situated between Ken Strangway’s delicous food and the scent of Francois Maltais soap; I gazed at the Farmer’s Market and felt a strange wave of serenity. And, not in the serenity now serenity now form of Seinfeld.

There’s More to Life Than Poutine — Street Eats at The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market

Standard

What is Street Food? I would officially say it’s artisan food sold on the streets, farmer’s markets etc., or more accurately, not served from restaurants or café’s. It’s re-inventing the ‘classics’ by stripping down the dish to it’s core ingredients and then re-designing it using improved cooking methods and ingredients. In layman’s terms, it is fresh food without gravy, vinegar and ketchup as a condiment.

Some of you know Ken Strangway as the head honcho of Lanark Laughs at Ballygiblin’s. Lanark Laughs began as a way for area comedians to get some stage time and bring laughter and much needed entertainment to the residents of Lanark County. Ken not only makes us laugh, but he has a food cart that he built himself with an ever changing menu at The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market on Saturdays.

Not only does “Street Eats” have the regular sandwiches, hot dogs and sausages with buns that are baked locally; he also has Chicken and Potato Roti. What the heck is Roti? Roti is a Bahamian favourite, that you can finally buy here in Carleton Place and not have to purchase a ticket for the next flight to the Bahamas. The chicken roti is inspired by Ken’s visits to the Caribbean. One customer, who is originally from the West Indies, said the roti was very authentic.

All Ken’s menu items are fresh, and some of his ever-changing items have included: peameal bacon on a bun, tacos, chicken & potato roti, and smoked meat. His pico de gallo is homemade, as well as the taco meat using Ken’s secret seasonings. You can’t get that at Subway! Now, you can eat locally at Street Eats for better value, and more your bang for your buck. Stay tuned for the Dagwood Sandwich!

Ken can be found at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market most Saturdays.  He’s also booked to do the BIA Lambsdown Fair and the BIA Bridge Street Bazaar.  Come say HI to Ken, he might even spare a joke or two along with that delicious food!
