Gudula Bauer has a face that is familiar to regular shoppers at the Vankleek Hill Farmers’ Market. But Bauer is always working on new products. Known for her raw and dried products, you can ask for help from this certified raw nutritionist to get more out of your smoothie. Bauer has lots of nutrition advice and sells nutrition-dense products at her table. She recently introduced fermented cashew cheese and a few months ago, she started growing sprouts to sell at the market every week, including a spicy sprout mix, great in salads and there are sunflower sprouts, too. With a table full of products, including flavourful dessert choices, there are too many items to mention here, so be sure to stop by her table at the market. On September 17, the market will be focused on everything garlic. Meet local producers of organic garlic, enjoy free samples and prepared foods for sale made with garlic and get tips for growing your own garlic and pick up some recipe ideas, too. At 10:30 a.m., grab a seat and watch Chef Bruce at work. He will be making Harmony Gardens Harvest Vegetable Goulash. And yes, garlic is part of the recipe.
