As the Cafe Korea was closed, we went off in search of the mexican restaurant downtown which was supposed to be good. Also closed, but attached to the farmers market which was open. The pictures of the Perogie Princesses preserves were poor, but I included her sign as a fine example of alliteration. For those whose eyesight is as poor as mine, it says Perogie Princess Premium Products.
The market building had inside and outside vendors. Also inside were the winners of the fall fair. That second picture shows that the winning pumpkin weighed in at 430 lbs.
There was a spice vendor with a fair collection of prepackaged spices. And a picture of the guy who was hawking the herbal stuff that we see here as herbal viagra. He was quite the showman and was making promises that he could cure snoring, pain, the works.
There was a chocolate vendor, most of his stuff was not too exciting, but I did get a kick out of the moose suckers, and he was kind enough to take one out of the package for photography purposes. Also didn't suceed in uploading the picture of Superior Meats, the place I buy my chorizo. They have a booth at the farmers market and at the mall. I bought some ham Kielbassa. Also purchased at the market - some really nice garlic.
Beth and Malou had sausage rolls and wonton soup from two of the indoor vendors.
This lovely trinidadian woman, who used to be a home ec teacher, is running a caribbean food stand. On the right her curried chicken with chickpeas.
I had the curried chicken with a fried rice dish that contained red peppers that tasted hot and smokey. It was glorious. She rearranged her whole booth and brought out some rum cake for us to try. Of course we had to buy one.
That was when she slipped us this. A bottle of her home made Caribbean Delight, an eggnog like drink. She explained that the rum is only in it as a preservative. I suspect we are going to be well preserved when we try it especially along with the rum cake. It is kept hidden under the counter.
So if you find yourself in Sudbury, go to the farmers market, stop by and get lunch from this lovely woman. And take home a rum cake, you'll be glad you did.
