Lineups such as this are typical alongside the Pure Bread stall at the Kitsilano (Kits) Farmers’ Market in Vancouver.
Here are some of the reasons.
We usually go for the Drunken Apple Blondies, above.
One square cut in half nicely takes care of two people’s desserts.
Bear in mind that I took these shots through the glass counter yesterday, but you’ll get a sense of just why it’s not uncommon to see a lineup that’s two dozen deep.
It’s not all about the desserts at the Kits Farmers’ Market, though.
As you’ll see here, I usually walk home with bags overflowing with berries, kale, lettuce, and assorted fruits and veggies that are in season.
Eggplant was on our dinner menu last evening, and we enjoyed market-fresh peaches and cherries at brunch.
We’re happy to have imported strawberries when they’re not in season locally, but nothing beats homegrown – see how the variety typically grown in BC is red through and through?
