Menu for Week of April 12 – April 17, 2021

What’s going on at Fresh Market Kitchen this week? We are going to be super busy making more ice cream, burger patties for BBQ @ home and crustless quiche! As the inventory is updated, you should see it appear in your Facebook feed – make sure you have Liked and/or Followed Fresh Market Kitchen on Facebook to get all of the updates! https://www.facebook.com/FreshMarketKitchen/

Pre-orders for our lunches and suppers are always recommended; as you know, we have a zero food-waste policy here in the kitchen, and Chef Casey personally shops for and hand picks every single ingredient for use in our kitchen, buying only what is necessary for that week’s menu and a bit extra in case of last minute orders. But that’s it…when it’s gone, it is gone. To avoid disappointment, please feel free to reserve your dishes early – not only does it ensure you get the meal you are looking for; it also helps with our meal prep and shopping trips.

WE’VE GOT YOUR BBQ NEEDS COVERED:

Fresh Market Kitchen is pleased to remind you that our BBQ @ Home Packs are available for pickup from our Market Kitchen. Succulent Coconut Curry Chicken Skewers (all breast meat, dairy-free and gluten-free), Triple B Burgers (beef brisket and bacon, gluten-free) and our Classic 1/2 LB Beef patties are being made this week! We also have frozen kaisers from our favourite Italian bakery in packs of 4 available. Click this link to get there quickly…https://freshmarketkitchen.ca/product-category/bbq-at-home/

All Things Bagel!

We hope you are enjoying the handmade bagels we are carrying from The Bagel Oven based in Beamsville, Ontario. This is a family-run business that specializes in handmade authentic Jewish bagels. Think Montreal-style bagels! To complement your bagels, we are also offering European cream cheese and delicious homemade hummus. Chef Casey makes her hummus with dried chick peas and the highest quality tahini available. If you know you’d like a larger volume of bagels for the week ahead, please get in touch asap so we can preorder those for you from The Bagel Oven and have them delivered fresh to our kitchen just for you for pickup Saturday. In the meantime, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (while supplies last), shop our Market Kitchen and purchase freshly-frozen bagels for your home and save $1 per bag! You will find out what is in stock currently in our freezer and reserve yours for convenient pickup here…https://freshmarketkitchen.ca/product-category/bagelsandtarts/

Beginning this week, we are offering single toasted bagels with our European cream cheese – available 11 am – 2 pm Wednesday through Saturday. Grab a delicious and quick bite on the go! $3.50 each.

Menu for week of December 14 – December 19

I begin this week’s menu email with a full heart – we have filled the laundry basket for a SECOND time and will keep collecting until Christmas Eve in support of Selkirk Christian Chapel’s Winter Clothing Drive for those facing homelessness.  The second basket of donations was picked up this week and hand distributed, once again, to those in need.  You have all been so generous and thoughtful – THANK YOU!

This is Kira with her donations that she picked out and purchased to donate herself!  #terrifickid

Again, thank you for helping us fill a trailer full of recyclables in support of the Norfolk Shriners Club and the Shriners Hospital of Montreal.  The Shriners have picked one load of donations thus far and brought us another empty trailer, so please consider bringing your aluminum pop cans, beer cans, metal cans, glass and plastic beer, liquor and wine bottles (please no water bottles, detergent bottles, lube oil bottles or household & other garbage).  There are bins in the trailer that you can take to your house to fill and bring back to the trailer.

There is still the opportunity to pre-order Fresh Market Kitchen’s Christmas Charcuterie – an assortment of chef-selected locally cured quality meats and cheese with our very own housemade pickles and jam (2-3 servings/box) $35 + HST per box (does not contain crackers/bread). We are getting down to the last few that will be made available.  Email casey@freshmarketkitchen.ca to reserve one!

We are still taking orders for Fresh Market Kitchen’s “Decorate at Home Gingerbread Chalet” for pick up the week of December 14-19 and 21-24.  Our French pastry chef and his elves have been busy baking, creating Decorate at Home Gingerbread Chalets – no preservatives or artificial ingredients – it’s gingerbread you’ll actually want to eat!! Each Chalet comes with professionally-made icing and the candies to decorate.  We love receiving the photos you have been sending us of your children and grandchildren putting them together, decorating them and creating memories to last a lifetime.  Have a look at how our Local Artisan Elaine’s turned out!  Easy to put together, tasty icing and plenty of candies and pretzels to adorn your masterpiece.  $22/kit + HST.  Email casey@freshmarketkitchen.ca to reserve one!

This week, we will only be offering lunch Thursday and Friday and our Brunch on Saturday in an effort to do all of the necessary prep for the Christmas Feasts, Charcuterie and Gift Baskets.  We will, however, have soups, quiches and extra lunches available so that you could arrange to pick up our featured lunch meal for supper (you would just reheat your soup at home J).  The week of Christmas (December 21st) there WILL NOT BE LUNCH OR SUPPER AVAILABLE, but we will be open for last-minute shopping and purchase of our soups, ice cream and pickles to hold you over until we are back in the New Year.  We close Christmas Eve at 4:30 PM and will be back, ready to cook again, January 11, 2021.

“Boxing Day Has Come Early Sale” at the Local Artisan Market this Friday, December 18th!
As you now know, Fresh Market Kitchen’s Local Artisan Market has had a different featured Artisan every Friday and Saturday starting back in November, and this is the final weekend!  We thank you for shopping and supporting our Local Artisan Market.  You are supporting so many talented locals from the Selkirk and Haldimand County area! 

Nana B will be back in our Kitchen Market this Friday, December 18th from 12-4 pm and is offering a BOGO 50% on every item she makes!  That includes her storybook pillows and American Doll clothes so make sure you take advantage of our Boxing Day Comes Early Sale this Friday on all of Betty-Ann’s beautiful work.   Another of our artisans, Wendy of Just The Perfect Purse, is offering 20% off her entire inventory of cross-body purse styles, makeup bags, several sizes of organizers/pouches that are just perfect for not only travel but for everyday use, handmade earrings and zipper pulls as well as her husband Steve’s wooden candle holders and beautiful handcrafted home décor pieces. 

On Saturday, December 19th from 12-4 pm, Kim Bliek will be back one last time with her handmade greeting cards and many other items. This is your last chance this season to stamp with Kim and make a gift card holder. There will be a small fee of $2.

Menu for week of November 30 – December 5


This is a bit of a longer read this week, so grab yourself a comfy seat and settle in for a bit of a read (or just scroll down to the juicy details of what we are cooking from scratch for you this week!)

We are beginning this new week and a new month this Tuesday, and we would like to take a quick moment to thank you for helping us support local! Local staff, local farmers, local artisans and crafters and local charities…these are all great things happening at Fresh Market Kitchen.  We have placed a collection basket just inside our front door for anyone that would like to help us support Selkirk Christian Chapel’s Winter Clothing Drive for the homeless this season.  We are collecting new socks and mittens in our kitchen.  Please consider donating an item or two to help keep someone a little bit warmer this winter season. 


The recycling program in support of the Norfolk Shriners Club and the Shriners Hospital of Montreal is still going on, and we thank you for your donations thus far.  If you haven’t had a chance to donate any cans and recyclable bottles, there is still a bit of time.  The Shriners Hospitals for Children has a mission to provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment, provide for the education of physicians and other healthcare professionals and conduct research to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and quality of life of children and families.  Their mission is carried out without regard to race, colour, creed, sex or sect, disability, national origin, or ability of a patient or family to pay.  The link to the hospital’s website is https://www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/montreal.  Thank you for your support of this worthy cause!
 
Don’t forget to take advantage of the pre-order opportunity to enjoy your Fresh Market Kitchen Family Style with Style Christmas Feast.  We will be closing off orders earlier than the originally anticipated cut-off date of December 17th due to the overwhelming positive response to our Christmas menu. 


 
We have been asked by a few if we will be selling Decorate at Home Christmas Cookies.  We are working closely with our French pastry chef to create a Decorate at Home Gingerbread Chalet – no preservatives or artificial ingredients – gingerbread you’ll actually want to eat!! (details to come very soon!)
 
With all of that said, I would like to let you know that we, at Fresh Market Kitchen, will be taking advantage of some much needed down time between Christmas and the New Year.  As you may know, we opened the doors to Fresh Market Kitchen at the very beginning of the pandemic and we have been working every moment since that time as an essential business.  In an effort to allow ourselves, our families and our amazing staff some time to unwind, we will be closing Christmas Eve, December 24, 2020, at 4:30 pm and reopening rejuvenated and rested on Monday, January 11, 2021, so stock your freezer with our from-scratch frozen soups and other delicious meals to see you through until we return ready to cook!  All of us at Fresh Market Kitchen continue to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming us so warmly into your family, day in and day out, every week.  We look forward to starting a new year in 2021, continuing our mission of making nutritional meals that take you back to a simpler time, when a plate of food would draw the family together and memories were made, always striving to source local first, ensuring the finest quality ingredients.  Family Style With Style is how we roll!!!
 
As you now know, Fresh Market Kitchen’s Local Artisan Market is thrilled to present a different featured Artisan every Friday and Saturday from now until Christmas in our beautiful market from 12-4 pm.    We thank you for shopping and supporting our Local Artisan Market.  You are supporting so many talented locals from the Selkirk and Haldimand County area!  
 
This Friday, December 4 from 1-4 pm, Fresh Market Kitchen’s Local Artisan Market is pleased to present Megan Nelson.  Megan makes gorgeous macramé plant hangers and has an amazing sense of humour, wanting you to know that, “each plant hanger has been crafted with naturally sourced elk’s hair. Being hand woven, they are infused with the highest amount of creative passion one can give. Accented with hand-carved wooden beads and coloured with the rarest pigments known to man, all of which can only be found in the highest peaks of the mountains. Those summits are where I discovered the materials as a young girl while on a year-long excursion to discover myself…No seriously though, I am a stay at home mom, and I’ve never adventured any further than the local craft shop.  I make what I love, and hope you love it too.”  LOL.  You must come meet Megan Friday!



On Saturday, December 5th from 12-4 pm, Susan Cuming of Selkirk will be with us.  If you don’t already know Susan, here is a bit about this amazing woman and her obvious passion for beach glass and jewelry … “Susan Cuming here! I have lived in Selkirk for 30+ years and in the village itself since 2003. I work full-time as an educator for the Alzheimer Society, I am a community volunteer and owner of Back in Play (Health & Wellness, EST 2016). I love walking the beaches of Selkirk and picking up beach glass as I go. They looked great in the big bowl on the bureau, but some of them were calling to shine!  I was already tumbling and creating Auralite 23 wired wrapped jewelry, and my husband suggested creating our own “beach glass” from coloured glass items we could purchase at garage sales or thrift stores.  Drop by and view some of the newer pieces I’ve created.  I’ll have my tumbler on hand and can show you the process. Perhaps you would like to create your own piece of Beach Glass jewelry? Maybe an Auralite 23 crystal will call to you?  Hope to see you out!”

 
Remember, if you ever have any questions about something that is on the menu or to reserve your dishes early, please email me (casey@freshmarketkitchen.ca) or send a text to (289) 426-0845 with your name please.
