St. Lawrence Market

Rising at dawn on a Saturday morning could mean only one thing: a trip to St. Lawrence Market. Few other reasons could stir me so early but the opportunity to shop for fresh food at this Toronto landmark. The farmer’s market feel to the place certainly beats the generic corporate warehouse-style place otherwise frequented.

Getting there early means less of a crowd getting there and moving about the vast selection of vendors. Missing breakfast to get there early meant I had an excuse to indulge in some of the delicious food there ready to be eaten. In past years I would have shown no restraint but lately the adoption of a calorie-reduced lifestyle has me being more selective. In the end I settled down for a quick “breakfast” of smoked salmon washed down with a double espresso.

The colours and selection can’t be beat and there were hours to take it all in. I’ve provided a few photos as a sample of all there is to offer.

It’s worth noting that amongst the flower vendors the sunflower seems to be incredibly popular and those buying seemed to agree.

Large tables both in the middle of the venue and lining the walls provided an abundance of produce.
Enough bunches of carrots and other vegetables to feed an army.
Fans of the Radish were not forgotten.
Flowers of virtually any kind are always nearby.
The meat counter; one of several where available is anything from bargain cuts to luxurious extremes. I settled for somewhere in the middle.

Sunday

With most of the day’s scheduled tasks and duties out of the way perhaps now would be a good time to settle into a comfortable chair and open a good book…

As The Days Get Shorter

I’m not pleased at all now that gradually there’s less daylight with each passing day. We’ve had enough of a time with one seriously rough winter season already. The cold in conjunction with a global pandemic made it challenging for all.

Time to once again accept a constantly changing reality and make the most of what we have.

Let It Rain

Seems we’re in the midst of a rainy season for sure. More often than not there’s some kind of downpour happening. It presents a challenge when I want to get painting but offers some great opportunities for photography.
