Albion Hills Farm
Pina comes to us from the Caledon area and at the market she sells a selection of cured and smoked meats, including sopressata, kielbasa and German salami. Stop by for a pepperette to snack on while you wander the market or take home some fresh breads and meats to share or to make great sandwiches.
Joe and Olga Gaeta has been with us since the market’s inception and Gaeta is one of the anchors of our market. Joe and his family come to us from Beamsville, Ontario, where they operate a very busy farm and store. Their specialty is flowers and bedding plants and if you want flowers for a special occasion or plants for your garden, there is no better place to shop. Gaeta’s second claim to fame is their many varieties of corn which are a huge customer favourite.
Grandpa Kens' Back Bacon
Grandpa Kens Back Bacon sandwiches are renowned. 6 slices of piled- high, pealmeal bacon on a kaiser with all the fixins. You might have a hard time getting your mouth around these sandwiches but your taste buds will thank you for the effort; Ken’s 6 oz. Texas Burgers, with cheese and bacon, are also a meat eater’s delight.
Honey & Q Corporation
Coming to us from Sunderland, Ontario, this is Honey Q’s second year at the market. In 2007, they allocated 340 hives for pollination of blueberries fields in New Brunswick, including those of Wyman’s Inc, one of the oldest manufacturers of blueberries in the world. They have now doubled that number to 700 and, during the 2009 Royal Winter Fair, they were awarded 1st place in Canada for buckwheat honey.

Thames River Melons
Owned and operated by Robert Chesney and his family, Robert jokes that he grows things that he likes to eat. Obviously, judging by what he grows, he eats very well! Robert established his first farm in 1984 by growing and selling half an acre of cantaloupe – his favourite melon. He also sells muskmelons, watermelons as well as a wide variety of specialty melons. Robert also brings a wide variety of fruit and vegetables to the market.
Ted is our egg man and comes to us from Hamilton, ON. His mother Nora and his father, Jim started the business and Ted is very proud to carry on the legacy. In addition to eggs (including duck eggs), Ted also sells butter, cheese, cheese curds and preserves.
