    We are local too. We make fresh/frozen Gluten Free Pitas, (Wheat free, Soy free, Dairy free, nut free, and egg free. Even those that do not need a special diet like these Pitas. They make wonderful hamburger holders and taste great with any sandwich filling. Many people are suffering from many foods that they are allergic too and we are trying to help. Check out our web site for more information and my story. Barb

      Hey Barb, you're local? Niagara I mean. Good for you, many stores are looking for gluten free products and it's good to know you're out there.

    Love The Ontario Table. We orginally bought it for all the mouth watering pictures & wonderful recipes. We have fallen in love with each page and have challenged ourselves to do a cross province tour to visit as many of the farmers/vendors as possible. We have always lived by the 100 mile rule & eat locally given every opportunity - thanks for a wonderful culinary tour of this wonderful province we call home Please add me to your mailing list for your new magazine

      Thnx for the wonderful comments. I have a friend who I rarely see anymore because she's been inspired to do the same - each weekend her and her husband get in the car and 'do another region' from the book. I'm glad I can share my great local food experiences with you.

    We are baking in Welland. We have a few stores already carrying our product. But we need more. Any store interested is more than welcome to contact us for product. Check our our website for location of stores. We are really excited about Subs Plus on Queenston St. and Scott St. in St. Catharines where you can walk in and order a Gluten Free Pita Pocket to go. Any other Sub Places or Pizza Places can benefit from our Product. We have an amazing Pizza Crust too.

    Dear Lynn, I saw your wonderful cookbook at the Cambridge Farmers' Market this morning. You have to come and do a book signing on a Saturday morning, when the market is really busy. I am a Family Studies Secondary School teacher and I was impressed with how you have written the book. The recipes, commentary and pictures all look fantastic!!! I am going to buy a copy and I would like you to sign it for me. I would like to be on your mailing list for newsletter and/or event happenings. Contact Alix at the Cambridge Farmers' Market.

    Hi Lynn: It was so lovely to meet you last Saturday at the Barrie Farmers' Market. I was up visiting friends and was delighted to see the bounty that August brings. I so value your contribution to the locavore/sustainability movement. I will be sharing your book and website with many. Ten dollars a week spent in our local food communities is very achievable. Thanks so much, Natalie Currie

    Hello Lynn, I'd like to have some of our certified organic produce listed in your upcoming publication. We are Art Farm Produce, near Warkworth. I've been selling in the Cobourg Market for 17 years. Among many other vegetables, we grow salad mix, lettuce, ground cherries, Heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, Patty-pans, and garlic. Thankyou, Lenni Workman

    Hi Lynn, great idea and very inspiring. I'm anxiously awaiting the opening of our local farmer's market and had planned to commit $20 of our family food budget / week to allowing each family member to pick out something fresh to incorporate into the week's meals. Do you have any ideas for how to live this ideal beyond the May-Oct time frame when we can access local markets? It becomes far to easy to go back to old habits and imported grocery store produce in the off-season.

      Hi Jen, Yes, you can eat local year round. I have an ebook - The Ontario Pantry - that lists all Ontario made foods. It's a great resource for what to buy (available on my website). But beyond the "pantry" items, don't forget about Ontario wine, cheese, all meats and poultry, fish and our amazing greenhouse industry that brings us fresh tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers and peppers 11 months of the year. Ask for them in your independent grocery stores and food markets.

      HI Cathy, The PDFf won't download? Sorry about that. I'm out of the country right now and don't have the ezine with me. I will email it to you on Monday of next week. Hope that's ok. Lynn

      Hi Victoria, I'm sorry but I no longer produce the ezine. It was a one year project, it was fantastic to do, but it's now over. Thanks for the interest in local food. Lynn
