Sosnicki Organics
I've been buying produce from Ben almost weekly for the past few years at Dufferin Groves farmers' market. He brings Cabbage and potatos into the city all year round and an ever expanding variety of other produce in the summer from his family run farm in norfolk county.

Their vegtables just seem to stay fresh in the fridge longer than when I've bought the same item... [Read More]
