It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through the fall CSA season.  Michelle has once again provided us with an amazing bin full of amazing produce. In this weeks bin we have included a business card for The Hungary Butcher.  Both of our families shop there for the majority of our meats.  If you are looking for some amazing sausages or bacon (or pretty much anything) be sure to check them out at the Western Fair Farmers Market or Ogilvies Market on weekends or else at their store on Dundas.
