Strawberry Fields Forever: For those that can’t wait to get a hold of fresh-from-the-farm strawberries, simply visit Thames River Melons Ltd.; the vendor offers some of the earliest berries in Ontario because he creates shelters for the plants in the field to help bring them along earlier.
For a healthy sweet tooth indulgence: visit Staite’s Honey at Metro Hall’s Farmers’ Market. Staite’s Honey is a family owned and operated business.

Karen High from Kar-Dean Fruit Farm (at Metro Hall)
